  • Hold the paper up to the light
    (some rays pass right through)
    Expose yourself out there for a minute
    (some rays pass right through)

    Take a little rest when the rays pass through
    Take a little time off when the rays pass through

    Go ahead and mess it up...Go ahead and tie it up
    In a long distance telephone call

    Hold on to that paper
    Hold on to that paper
    Hold on because it's been taken care of
    Hold on to that paper

    See if you can fit it on the paper
    See if you can get it on the paper
    See if you can fit it on the paper
    See if you can get it on the paper

    Had a love affair but it was only paper
    (some rays they pass right through)
    Had a lot of fun, could have been a lot better
    (some rays they pass right through)

    Take a little consideration, take every combination
    Take a few weeks off, make it tighter, tighter
    But it was never, it was never written down
    Still might be a chance that it might work out (if you)

    Hold on to that paper
    Hold on to that paper
    Hold on because it'll be taken care of
    Hold on to that paper

    Don't think I can fit it on the paper
    Don't think I can get it on the paper
    Go ahead and rip up, rip up the paper
    Go ahead and tear up, tear up the paper
