Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Everybody keeps telling me I'm such a lucky man
Lookin' at you standin' there I know I am
Barefooted beauty with eyes that blue
Sunshine sure looks good on you
I swear

Oh I can't believe I finally found you baby
Happy ever after, after all this time
Oh there's gonna be some ups and downs
But with you to wrap my arms around
I'm fine

So baby, hold on tight
Don't let go
Hold onto the love we're making
'Cause baby when the ground starts shakin'
You gotta know when you've got a good thing

You know you keep on bringin' out the best of me
And I need you now even more than the air I breathe

You can make me laugh when I wanna cry
This will last forever I just know, I know

So baby, hold on tight
Don't let go
Hold onto the love we're making
'Cause baby when the ground starts shakin'
You gotta know when you've gotta good thing

We got a good thing, baby, whoa
So hold on tight
Baby, don't let go
Hold onto the love we're making
'Cause baby when the ground starts shakin'
You gotta know, oh you gotta know
Oh you gotta know, you gotta know
When you got a good thing

Uh uh uh
We got a good thing baby
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa




Whoa
