Lyrics
When the going gets tough
The tough get going, tough, tough, huh, huh, huh
When the going gets tough, the tough gets ready
Yeah, oh, du da do da

I got something to tell you
I got something to say
I'm gonna put this dream in motion
Never let nothing stand in my way

When the going gets tough
The tough gets going

I'm gonna get myself 'cross the river
That's the price I'm willing to pay
I'm gonna make you stand and deliver
And give me love in the old-fashioned way

Darlin',
I'll climb any mountain
Darlin',
I'll do anything

Ooh, can I touch you (can I touch you)
And do the things that lovers do
Ooh, wanna hold you (wanna hold you)
I gotta get it through to you, oh

[Chorus]
When the going gets tough
(The tough gets going)
When the going gets rough
(The tough gets rough)
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Oh baby

I'm gonna buy me a one-way ticket
Nothing's gonna hold me back
Your love's like a slow train coming (slow train coming)
And I feel it coming down the track (whoa)

Darlin',
I'll climb any mountain
Darlin',
I'll do anything

Ooh (ooh) can I touch you (can I touch you)
And do the things that lovers do
Ooh, (ooh) wanna hold you (wanna hold you)
I gotta get it through to you (ooh)

[Chorus]

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Whoa, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Darlin',
I'll climb any mountain
Darlin',
I'll swim any sea
Darlin',
I'll reach for the heavens
Darlin',
With you lovin' me
Oh (oh)

Oh, can I touch you (can I touch you)
And do the things that lovers do (can I touch you)
Oh, wanna hold you (wanna hold you)
I gotta get it through to you

When the going gets tough
(Going gets tough)
When the going gets rough er! er!
(Going gets rough) When the going gets tough
(Going gets rough)
When the going gets rough er! er!
(Going gets rough)
