"Hold Back The Dawn" as written by and Reed/burtnick Nielsen....
Snatch it back and hold it
Baby, one more time
I ain't doin' too bad, baby
I got you on my mind
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey yeah
We're havin' a real good time

Somebody help me
Just can't help myself
Somebody's got to help me
I can't help myself
I'm not doin' too bad, baby
You know I ain't got no brand new bag

Snatch it back and you hold it
Snatch it back and hold it
Hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah
Snatch it back and hold it
I said hey, hey, hey, hey, hey yeah
Snatch it back and hold it

You doin' a swim the máshed potato
Jump back Jack, see you later, alligator
Doin' a jerk, you're doin' a twine
You're doin' a push with a funky, monkey turn
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah
We're havin' a real good time

Now snatch it back and hold it
I wanna tell you where it's at
All the kids in the neighborhood
They're doin' a brand new dance
Snatch it back and hold it
I wanna show you where it's at

You doin' a swim the máshed potato
Jump back Jack, see you later, alligator
Doin' a jerk, you're doin' a twine
You're doin' a push with a funky, monkey turn
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah
We're havin' a real good time

Snatch it back and you hold it
Snatch it back and hold it
Hey, hey, hey, hey yeah
Snatch it back and hold it
I said hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah
Snatch it back and hold it

I said one more time
Just one more time
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey yeah
Baby, one more time
All the kids in the neighborhood
They know exactly where it's at

You doin' a swim the máshed potatoes
Jump back Jack, see you later alligator
Doin' a jerk, you're doin' a twine
You're doin' a push with a funky, monkey turn
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah
We're havin' a real good time
