"When The Going Gets Tough" lyrics

When the going gets tough
The tough get going, tough, tough, huh, huh, huh
When the going gets tough, the tough gets ready
Yeah, ooooh, du da do da

I got something to tell you
I got something to say
I'm gonna put this dream in motion
Never let nothing stand in my way

When the going gets tough
The tough gets going

I'm gonna get myself 'cross the river
That's the price I'm willing to pay
I'm gonna make you stand and deliver
And give me love in the old-fashioned way

Daaaaaaaaarlin',
I'll climb any mountain
Daaaaaaaaarlin',
I'll do anything

Ooh, can I touch you (can I touch you)
And do the things that lovers do
Ooh, wanna hold you (wanna hold you)
I gotta get it through to you, oooh

When the going gets tough
(The tough gets going)
When the going gets rough
(The tough gets rough)
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Ooooh baby

I'm gonna buy me a one-way ticket
Nothing's gonna hold me back
Your love's like a slow train coming (slow train coming)
And I feel it coming down the track (woah)

Daaaaaaaaaaarlin',
I'll climb any mountain
Daaaaaaaaaaarlin',
I'll do anything

Ooh (ooh) can I touch you (can I touch you)
And do the things that lovers do
Ooh, (ooh) wanna hold you (wanna hold you)
I gotta get it through to you (ooh)

[CHORUS]

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Wooh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Daaaaaaaaaaarlin',
I'll climb any mountain
Daaaaaaaaaaarlin',
I'll swim any sea
Daaaaaaaaaaarlin',
I'll reach for the heavens
Daaaaaaaaaaarlin',
With you lovin' me
Oooh (oooh)

Oooh, can I touch you (can I touch you)
And do the things that lovers do (can I touch you)
Oooh, wanna hold you (wanna hold you)
I gotta get it through to you

When the going gets tough
(Going gets tough)
When the going gets rough er! er!
(Going gets rough) When the going gets tough
(Going gets rough)
When the going gets rough er! er!
(Going gets rough)...[to fade]
