"When the Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going" as written by Robert John Lange, Billy Ocean, Wayne Anton Brathwaite and Barry James Eastmond....
When the going gets tough
The tough get going, tough, tough, huh, huh, huh
When the going gets tough, the tough get ready

Tough, tough, tough

Yeah, oh, do da do da
I got something to tell you
I got something to say
I'm gonna put this dream in motion
I Never let nothing stand in my way
When the going gets touch
The tough get 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-fashion way woh

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

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

When the going gets tough
The tough get going
When the going gets rough
The tough get rough
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Oh baby

I'm gonna buy me a one-way ticket
Nothin's gonna hold me back
Your love's like a slow train coming (slow train coming)
And I feel it coming down the track (woh)

Darlin', I'll climb any mountain
Darlin', I'll do anything
Oh (oh) can I touch you (can I touch you)
And do the things that lovers do
Oh, (oh) want to hold you (wanna hold you)
I gotta get it through to you (oh)
'Cause when the going gets tough
The tough get going
When the going gets rough
The tough get rough

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (oh hit it)
Oh oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Touch me baby oh oh

Darlin', I'll climb any mountain
Darlin', I'll swim any sea
Darlin', I'll reach for the heaven
Darlin', with you lovin' me
Oh (oh)

Oh, can I touch you (can I touch you)
Do the things that lovers do (can I touch you)
Oh, want to hold you (wanna hold you)
I gotta get it through to you

When the going gets tough
Going gets tough
Going gets rough
Going gets rough

When the going gets tough
Going gets tough
Going gets rough
Going gets rough

When the going gets tough
Going gets tough
Going gets rough
Going gets rough
When the going gets tough

    General CommentThis song gave me nightmares when I was a small child. I'm not saying this is a truly horrible song. I'm just saying, use it at your elementary school's Halloween party, in the haunted house. Wherever you keep the vampire section.
