What makes him stand and fight
When he only wants to love
And why do they push so hard
When he only needs a shove
Every time I see him go
Everybody says to wait
Can't get loose
You can fight like hell
But you can't get loose
You can dream
But you can't get loose
It's holdin' on, holdin' on

Can't get loose
Oh, no, no

What makes on man rich
How's another man get so poor
What make someone care so much
For things another man can just ignore
Some questions go unanswered
And they have for quite some time
Something's forever sacred
We're just prisoners of our own minds

Can't get loose
We can fight like hell
But we can't get loose
We can dream
But we can't get loose
Keep's holdin' on, holdin' on
Can't get loose
Shake it, share it, share it loose
Oh yeah

There she sits
With stars in her eyes
But too afraid to dance
'Cause every guy that she holds so close
Just wants to get in her pants
Oh yeah
Can't get loose
Can't get loose
Can't get loose
Can't get loose

Tell me what keeps her by his side
When she's treated just like dirt
The fear of the dark unknown
Appears to be much worse than the hurt
So she stays up nights and dreams
Of a knight in shining armour
Who will rescue her one day
While time keeps going against her

Can't get loose
We can fight like hell
But we can't get loose
We can dream
But we can't get loose
Keep's holdin' on, holdin' on
Can't get loose
Shake it, share it, share it loose
Oh yeah
