The Tide Is High
John Holt Lyrics


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

I'm not the kinda man who gives up just like that, no oh oh oh
It's not the things you do, that really hurts me bad
But it's the way you do the things, you do to me

I'm not the kinda man who gives up just like that no oh oh oh
The tide is high but I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one
Number one, number one

Every man wants you to be his girl
But I'll wait my dear 'till it's my turn
I'm not the kinda man who gives up just like that, no oh oh oh

Every man wants you to be his girl
But I'll wait my dear 'till it's my turn
I'm not the kinda man who gives up just like that, no oh oh oh

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

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE GET THE FACTS RIGHT ON THIS SONG BECAUSE OF ITS HISTORICAL PLACE IN THE HISTORY OF POPULAR MUSIC.
THE ORIGINAL VERSION WAS MADE BY JOHN HOLT AND THE PARAGONS.
Blondie did a version which made into the UK Chart at no1.
Atomic Kitten then made another version and got into the Uk Chart as well top 10. I hope this clear up the arguments.peace

Pat Keys

so many good memories as a kid listening to the atomic kitten's version. Now I realised it was so good because it came from a masterpiece.

Stephen Fernandes

I just came to know he was d original singer of this song, always thought it was atomic kitten, then came to know about Blondie. But someone told me John Holt was d original singer. Thank you Mr.John
