Hands on a Hardbody - Keep Your Hands On It Lyrics

Broadway musical (2013)
Hands on a Hardbody - Keep Your Hands On It Lyrics

The song is written by Trey Anastasio and Amanda Green.

I have never been the kind of guy who can put his faith in luck.
I was stubborn, I was patient,
I wouldn't leave without this truck.
My daddy always told me,
"Don't wait for your lucky ship.
You can have it, go and grab it,
Just don't ever lose your grip."
If you want something keep your hands on it, hold it close to you,
Don't let go one bit, could be someone else may have plans on it.
So if you want something
Keep your hands on it, just keep your hands on it.

From the moment I first saw you,
I knew I had to make you mine.
There were other guys with hungry eyes just waiting in a line.
I grabbed you and I held you close, the first chance I could get.
Chills went through me, held you to me, and I haven't let go yet.
If you want something, keep your hands on it.
Cling with all your soul, when you find your fit

It may break your heart, it may hurt a bit, but if you love something,
Keep your hands on it. If you love something, keep your hands on it.

This is Frank Nugent at KYKX with a special thanks to all our contestants.

Watched my son hit his first single, at his first time up at bat.
Had a part-time job and lost it. I'm still not so good at that.
My wife and I are talking more

Chris & Jesus:
We'll have to wait and see.

I'm still workin' double shifts.
I'm gonna get that damn degree!

My lady friend got me this job it fixes highway lights.
So I'm all set, no problem, problem is I'm scared of heights.

Janis & Don:
While the world rewards the cheaters,
We ain't got two cents to spare, got our family,
Got each other, and our twenty tons of air!

All Cast:
If you want something, keep your hands on it
Let them take your pride it won't hurt a bit
And if you love someone keep your hands on them
Let them take your heart it belongs to them

Now I didn't win the contest, it's turned out okay I guess

Got her safely home that night

Got him a job at UPS

Kelli & Greg:
We're savin' really careful each week stash'n some away
for the big two week vacation in Vegas and LA,
From the 28th until the 12 of May. We're gone!

Now, I'm still in search of steady work.
Ours is not to question why.
I got extra hours at my job.
With God's help, we get by.
Now I see he didn't bring to this contest to win,
He put me in it, not to win it, but to bring more souls to him.

Floyd King Nissan, it went belly up!
We couldn't fill the quota.

But the contest still continues, right here at Floyd King Toyota!

Entered it again next year, I never thought I'd dare
But I done it and I won it, only this time fair and square!

All Cast:
If you want something let your purpose show
Hold it close to you, don't you let it go
Let it be your guide, star of Bethlehem
If you want something, don't let go
Don't let go, don't let go

Me, I'm doin fine.
Sleepin' over my mother's garage until things even out.
Don't think the contest is over just cause the tent is gone.
The contest for life goes on, and on, and on
We're all around the truck here. The best souls and the worst.
Slack jaw'd and ? just to see who'll drop off first.
That's the nature of creatures livin' on this planet earth
You fight for your breath right from the moment of your birth
So if you want something, keep your hands on it
If you love someone, keep your hands on them
If you lose everything

All Cast:
Don't let go!
