"Hangin' Tough" as written by and Larry Curtis / Johnson....
[Repeat: x2]
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Listen up everybody if you want to take a chance
Just get on the floor and do the New Kids' dance
Don't worry 'bout nothing 'cause it won't take long
We're gonna put you in a trance with a funky song

'Cause you gotta be hangin' tough,
Hangin' tough, hangin' tough
We're rough

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Everybody's always talkin' 'bout who's on top
Don't cross our path 'cause you're gonna get stomped
We ain't gonna give anybody any slack
And if you try to keep us down we're gonna come right back

And you know we're hangin' tough,
Hangin' tough, hangin' tough
Are you tough enough, hangin' tough,
Hangin' tough, hangin' tough
We're rough

[Repeat: x2]
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Get loose everybody 'cause we're gonna do our thing
'Cause you know it ain't over 'till the fat lady sings

Hangin' tough, hangin' tough, hangin' tough
Are you tough enough?
Hangin' tough, hangin' tough, hangin' tough
We're rough

[Repeat: x3]
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
Just hangin' tough
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Hangin' tough

    General Commenttedthehead, that takes balls since YOU are on here reading this page too. I'd call you a fag but that would be degrading gay people by lumping you in with them. Moron.

    ANYWAY...

    Yeah this is not really my favorite song, actually, out of the entire album this has got to be the poorest song they've done in terms of lyrical composition and overall quality. I mean come on, the Coca-Cola ad they did at the beginning of the video for the step by step tour was better than this.

    General CommentLast night I think aliens abducted my body and took over my brain for a while. Today, I'm feeling much better. Glad to get out of that horrible funk. Got better news that changed everything. Just heard this on the radio, made me feel like a kid again!! Don't ask my why I'm looking up the lyrics, curious really. These guys have actually reunited and are touring again. Good for them but it's kind of scary for obvious resons..
