Jump into that water and see for yourself
Take a deep breath and hold it in, hold it in

She's got a secret and she wants to tell
But I made a promise to hold it in, hold it in

Baby I'm in love and maybe it's not to tell
Only thing that I can do is hold it in, hold it in

I was told that I'm a man now and I'm not allowed to cry
The only thing that I can do is hold it in, hold it in
Hah!

(Refrain)
Life is "Oh my God, if I tell him, he'll tell her, and then she will know I like her!"
Good grief! I don't think that I can take this heartbreak any longer
I will not hold it in
Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!

Well the couple with the baby and it's no secret why
Neither one was able to hold it in, hold it in

Kids in the streets yeah they're all getting high
Everybody's screaming "hold it in, hold it in!"
Ha-hey!

(Refrain)

If there's God, He's embarrassed and it's no secret why
The only thing that He can do is hold it in, hold it in

So I printed him a letter to be sent out to sea
Looking for a bottle to hold it in, hold it in
Ha!

(Refrain)

    All the things in life that we could let out that we choose to hold in, or that society says we should hold in.
