Well my brother-in-law and my sister Sue
Live in a house and I live there too
I lock my doors and get down at night
They get drunk and fight
I sing hey would you hold it down
Some of us are trying to be happy
Some of us are trying to be happy
So hey would you hold it down

Neighbour couple two doors down the street
He's all right and she's real sweet
I lock my doors and get down at night
They get drunk and fight
I sing hey would you hold it down
Some of us are trying to be happy
Some of us are trying to be happy
So hey would you hold it down

Presidents and ambassadors
Have the power to start and stop the wars
I lock my doos and get down at night
They get drunk and we all have to fight
I sing hey would you hold it down
Some of us are trying to be happy
Some of us are trying to be happy
So hey would you hold it down

Hey won't you hold it down
Hey won't you hold it down
Hey won't you hold it down
