Four Seasons, The - Let's Hang On Lyrics



There ain't no good in our goodbye-ing
True love takes a lot of trying
Ooooh I'm crying

Let's hang on to what we've got
Don't let go girl, we've got a lot
Got a lot o' love between us
hang on, hang on, hang on to what we've got
(Doo-woop, doo-woop, doo-woop)

You say you're gonna go and call it quits
gonna chuck it all and break our love to bits
(breaking up) I wish you never said it
(breaking up) No no, we'll both regret it

That little chip of diamond on your hand
ain't a fortune babe but you know it stands
(for your love) a love to try and bind us
(such a love) we just can't leave behind us
Baby (don't you go) baby (no no no)

Baby (think it over and) stay-ay
Let's hang on to what we've got
Don't let go girl, we've got a lot
got a lot o' love between us
Hang on, hang on, hang on to what we've got
(doo-woop, doo-woop, doo-woop)

there isn't anything i wouldn't do
I'd pay any price to get in good with you
(patch it up) give me a second turnin'
(patch it up) don't cool off while i'm burnin'

you've got me cryin' dyin' at your door
don't shut me out, let me in once more
(open up) you're arms I need to hold you
(open up) you're heart oh girl I told you
Baby (don't you go) Baby (no no no)

Baby (think it over and) Stay-ay
Let's hang on to what we've got
Don't let go girl, we've got a lot
Got a lot o' love between us
Hang on, hang on, hang on to what we've got
(doo-woop, doo-woop, doo-woop)

  4. Joesph Obrien

    This music never ages brilliantly

  5. Rick Gureghian

    The very first concert I worked as a "red shirt" in 1971, a just-graduated high-schooler heading off to college in a few months, was helping handle security at their concert in Boston's Symphony Hall - helping keep the aisles clear, protecting the group from fans too-near the stage, and asking folks not to smoke cigs or grass since there was always a fire marshal and police in attendance. It was a fun night for the crowd, even the fire marshal and cops were into it. It was the kind of night I expected for all the concert dates I would work in all the New England venues that would dominate my college years - the Rolling Stones, CSN&Y, Grateful Dead, The Band, and too, too many more to name. But the first would always be the best!. Folks were happy and mellow that night, everyone was smiling, and they closed the show with this very song: "Let's Hang On!"

    BTW, I saw the Beatles, at Boston Garden in 1964 as a 10-year old, my cousin with her three friends, coerced into taking me by her father --- my uncle --- since he bought and paid for the tickets. All these years later, I still think my cousin's pissed at having to drag her little cousin to the concert!

  6. Gerard Holguin

    "Don't cool off while I'm burning" what a line!

  7. Chad Gilmore

    Im glad I'm not this generation look what they missed out on

  9. Rico T

    This song will never get old, love the guitar riffs at the beginning. Released in September 1965 by The Four Seasons, the original version of Let's Hang On got to No.4 in the UK back in January 1966 and was the 63rd best selling single of 1966.

  10. Leo Notarianni

    September 1965 release . It was their biggest since Rag Doll from mid 1964

  11. John Baines

    Happy memories

  12. dugroz

    Frankie and the boys did it before Bon Jovi!

  13. Roy LaFountain

    AM radio was made for songs like this. I remember playing these records and turning up the monitors until the other building tenants complained...and my ears hurt!

  21. Sarina Burke

    Frankie Valley sure could hit those high notes. Great song great group. I wish they would tour.

  22. Jerry Muzak

    My family partied heavily in the 70's. Always had the oldies cranking. This song was a fave for all of us. One of those tunes, the whole family danced around in a circle to. Every time it was on.
    I'm only gonna be 54 in Feb of 2020 and a lot of my family is already gone. Most have passed away from cancer or drugs.
    I sincerely miss the old days and the dearly departed family and friends so much, I cry from time to time.

  23. Robert Mendez

    1965 Lourdes Academy quermes I still remember Monina and the other girls dancing to this tune. Beautiful song beautiful times.

  24. joseph Walton

    lets hang on to the old songs

  25. Jose Cambran

    Extraodinaria manera de cantar,,,,inyectan optimismo, energia, una enorme alegria y aplaudimos a tan pretigiosos artistas.....es una lástima que el tiempo pase y con el, todo lo que sucedió en el ambito musical.......pero, honor a quien honor merece y merecen vivir en nuestra mente pero sobre todo en nuestro corazón.......No les parece?

  26. Steven Rafferty

  33. Sarina Burke

    Some of the best music ever

  34. Jeffrey Hancock

    Funny thing here....when you haven't heard these songs in more than 40 years...yet you still know the words!

  35. Jerry Muzak

    I remember it was my cuz Billy 17th birthday bash, at my house august 14th 1975. The older folks in my family pounded booze like there was no tomorrow. They always had the classic songs on, too.
    Anyways, my Mom was blind drunk b4 the party even started. As people started showing up, my Mom put this song on. My cuz Margaret walked thru the door and my Mom grabbed her by surprise and they both started jitterbugging to this song, in the living room. Everyone who was there joined in, on the dancing.
    I really miss those days. It was so spontaneous. So spur of the moment and a family enjoying nothing but pure fun, together.
    Things seem a lot different these days.
    My memory may not mean much to y'all but I still wanted to share anyways. makes me feel good to do so. Lost my Mom back in 2003.
    Love to all.

  42. Robin Mayhew

    Just heard this on Golden Years Radio . net and all the 60's music that gets played takes me back to the good old days when I had a rock band called The Presidents. Our recording for Decca in 1965 was lost for 53 years and just released in June 2018 and Golden Years has included it in the playlist.  Got the old band back together and made a video so it's me 78 miming
    to me singing 25 - great fun and who knows we might trend : -)    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjcKGcM0Rtc

  43. UtterAndComplete

  44. Jose Martinez

    FUCK TALK RADIO

  45. Mary Lacey

    I had this album, actually it was my sister's somewhere around 1968 or 69. I was about 12. Good music, even today in 2019!!

  46. Dump Trump

    Back when music meant something, said something & wasn't just "product" from this week's instantly forgetable Mumble Rap moron.

  50. Ihateohioandmoving to florida

    I miss the era when music had its on sound and was enjoyable to listen to when it came on the radio. Today’s music couldn’t come close.

  51. Pamela W

  52. Mark Huddleston

    Best Harmony's ever!

    Any cognitive deficits Trumplestiltskin has are overshadowed by his personality which is all bad.

  54. Donna Gannon

    I remember my dad dancing with me and I was dancing on his feet at the beach of Oxnard right before he died I was 5 yrs old 😥. And it was our beach trip that I will never forget... Love you dad

    tooslow21 4G63

  60. 99barrywhite

    Happy Birthday Frankie!

  61. Courtney Burke

    2019 any one? Xxx

  62. Peak Radio UK

    One of my fave songs of all time, by one of my fave bands of all time. Love hearing the recent versions of this from Frankie's gigs over the last few years. Just incredible how after all this time this song never ever gets old. It is basically Motown in sound, this is what I love about the Four Seasons, how effortlessly they combined pop, soul, doo-wop, rock'n'roll and R&B to make an original fusion of white and black influences. Love it to pieces <3

  63. Jurasstic Music

    When I first heard this song, I didn’t expect the guitar drop and when it hit, man was I in love with this band.

  64. amy hannah

    I'm still hanging on.lol. Love this song just adore it.

  65. Repent and Believe

    This song comes on a lot at my job.

  66. Mark Huddleston

    Best ever !!!

  67. Leslie Doll

    tremendous!

  68. MEGABOINK65

    Underrated group.

  69. Duh Man

    All I want to do is to go back in time! Anyone want to join me?

  70. Zachra Aulia

    There ain't no good in our goodbyein'
    True love takes a lot of tryin'
    Oh, I'm cryin'
    Let's hang on to what we've got
    Don't let go, girl, we've got a lot
    Got a lot of love between us
    Hang on, hang on, hang on to what we've got

    Gonna chuck it all and break our love to bits
    Break it up (I wish you'd never said it)
    Break it up (oh no, we'll both regret it)
    That little chip of diamond on your hand
    Ain't a fortune , baby,
    But you know it stands for the love, (a love to tie and bind ya)
    Such a love (we just can't leave behind us)
    Baby (don't you know?)
    Baby (don't you go)
    Think it over and stay! Let's hang on
    Let's hang on to what we've got
    Don't let go, girl, we've got a lot
    Got a lot of love between us
    Hang on, hang on, hang onto what we've got
    There isn't anything I wouldn't do
    I'd pay any price to get in good with you
    Patch it up (give me a second turnin')
    Patch it up (don't cool off while I'm burnin')
    You've got me cryin', dyin' at you door
    Don't shut me out, ooh, let me in once more
    Open up (your arms, I need to hold you)

    Thank you

  71. Alexia Tr

    I was born at least 20 years from when these songs were released but I grew up with them

  72. John Flanagan

    We did hang on ... and it still sounds great!

  73. Jim Palaia

  75. Michael Smith

    My first heart break when this song came out. So much melancholy.

  76. Gianni Vieri

    Wish music was like this now . Pure magic

  77. Sandra Dee Lawson.

    Musicman1804 invited me over to listen to Frankie Valli And The Four Seasons. I said OK!

  78. Erik Louderback

    Do yourself a favor.  Go see him in concert before it is too late.  Even though he was old the concert was surprisingly much better than U2.  Almost bought his new CD on the way out but at least I didn't have to save the world.

  79. Arya Stark

    2019 anyone ?

  80. Larry L

    This song reminds me of my deceased father....about 20 years ago I was playing this song and my dad walked in and heard it.....he told me that when he was in Vietnam in '65...they would always play that song....I'll never forget that!  Music not only makes you feel good in the present.....it can wisk you back to your past as well.

  81. vinny de

    I want to thank my father for passing this down to me today's music SUCKS ASS!

  82. IG GAMING

    They used to play after Wigan athletics football matches at home long time ago. I'm not sure they do anymore but was good to hear after.

  83. Andyco79

    1965, listen to the jagged guitar toward the beginning of the song.

    Why are there no more vocal groups like the Four seasons? Sad that music like this is dying.
