"The Tide Is High (Get The Feeling)" as written by John Kenneth Holt, Howard Anthony Barrett, Tyrone Evans, Jeremy Peter Godfrey and Bill Padley....
The tide is high
But I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one

I'm not the kinda girl
Who gives up just like that (Oh no)

It's not the things you do
That tease and hurt me bad
But it's the way you do the things
You do to me
I'm not the kinda girl
Who gives up just like that o
Oh no

The tide is high
But I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one
The tide is high
But I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one

Number one
Number one

Every girl wants
You to be her man
But I'll wait my dear
'Til it's my turn
I'm not the kinda girl
Who gives up just like that
Oh no

The tide is high
But I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one
The tide is high
But I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one

Number one
Number one

Every time that I get the feeling
You give me something to believe in
Every time that I got you near me
I don't believe that I want it to be
But you know that I'm gonna take my chance now
I'm gonna make it happen somehow
And you know I can take the pressure
A moment's pain for a lifetime pleasure

Every girl wants you to be her man
But I'll wait right here
'Til it's my turn
I'm not the kinda girl
Who gives up just like that
Oh no

The tide is high
But I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one
The tide is high
But I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one

Every time that I get the feeling
You give me something to believe in
Every time that I got you near me
I don't believe that I want it to be
But you know that I'm gonna take my chance now
I'm gonna make it happen somehow
And you know I can take the pressure
A moment's pain for a lifetime pleasure

    General CommentYeh, totally, Blondie rules! Atmoic Kitten suck with all their cover versions of classic songs. The only good thing about them covering stuff is that people dig out the old, original versions to listen to!!

    General CommentI agree with all you that said Blondies is better, originals always are!!
    This song isn't anything special but I love the line "A moment's pain, for a lifetime pleasure."
    My sister used to think it said "I'm not the kind of girl who gives up drugs like that"
    That would have been an awesome song! XD
