Don't Lose Your Grip On Love

Don't lose your grip on love
Don't lose your grip on love
Take me higher and higher like a jet plane flies
But don't lose your grip on love

Why do you despise this travelling man
Even though he's doing the best that he can
Working for peanuts as is his wont
How come you don't hear him when he says
Honey don't lose your grip on love
Don't lose your grip on love
Take me higher and higher like a jet plane flies
But don't lose your grip on love

Said he was a fire sign when he last come by
But fire sign or water sign you can still hear him cry
He put up a statue then burnt down the town
And the first word his tongue spoke when he came 'round was
Don't lose your grip on love
Don't lose your grip on love
Take me higher and higher like a jet plane flies
But don't lose your grip on love

And when he was in trouble and was feeling so low
His friends had deserted him and he had no place to go
He looked like a dead man but be that as it may
Well I thought he was joking when I heard him say
Don't lose your grip on love
Don't lose your grip on love
Take me higher and higher like a jet plane flies
But don't lose your grip on love
