NO, DON'T LET IT GO (Pete Ham)
[from No, Don't Let It Go limited edition vinyl 45 - recorded 1975 - released U.S. 2013]

Drunken days, drunken nights
Someone, please, turn out the light
You can't face the mirror anymore

Move along, magic gone
Someone else can sing your song
You won't lift your head up off the floor

Na-na-na-na-na-no, don't let it go
Na-na-na-na-na-no, don't let it go
Na-na-na-na-na-no, don't let it go
Don't let it go

Fight has gone, right seems wrong
You won't even play along
Can't you see behind this old facade

Sinking fast, time will pass
Can't you make the story last
Why make every setback seem so hard

Na-na-na-na-na-no, don't let it go
Na-na-na-na-na-no, don't let it go
Na-na-na-na-na-no, don't let it go
Don't let it go

You say there's no use trying when you only end up crying
It's a fool's game
It's no longer funny, now you're doing it for money
It's a shame, shame

Empty days, sleepless nights
Seems you've lost the will to fight
Can't I help you back on to the road

Secret lock, hidden key
Won't you open up for me
Let me help you shed your heavy load

Na-na-na-na-na-no, don't let it go
Na-na-na-na-na-no, don't let it go
Na-na-na-na-na-no, don't let it go
Don't let it go

You say there's no use trying when you only end up crying
It's a fool's game
It's no longer funny, n
ow you're doing it for money
It's a shame, shame

No, let it go
No, no
No, no

Na-na-na-na-na-no, don't let it go
Na-na-na-na-na-no, don't let it go
Na-na-na-na-na-no, don't let it go
Don't let it go
