Here's my attempt at a transcription from the YouTube recording. I have marked with "(?)"a few places where I'm uncertain:


HOLDING ON
As sung by The Detroit Emeralds

They say (they say)
That my hopes are too big (too big)
All those wild thoughts of loving you
Running through my head (oh yeah)
That it's too nice(?) (it's too nice(?))
For a boy like me to have paradise
But I'll keep holding on (holding on, holding on)
Till that dream comes true
I know I don't have
A thing to offer you
But just think
Think of what true love can do
Love's got the power
Of making dreams come true (of making dreams come true)
And I'm gonna stick and stay right here
Till I feel new(?)
It's never too late (it's never too late)
And let me tell you true love comes ...(?)
I'll keep on holding on (holding on, holding on)
Till that dream comes true
Woo-hoo
I'm gonna hang on to that dream
As strange as it may seem
And one day I know
True love will find a way
And I'll throw away my pride (I'll throw away my pride)
Just to keep you satisfied (oh, yeah)
It's never too late (It's never too late)
And let me tell you true love comes ...(?)
I'll keep on holding on (holding on, holding on)
Till that dream comes true.
Let me tell you, I'll keep on holding on (holding on, holding on)
Till that dream comes true.
Don't you know, I'll keep on holding on (holding on, holding on)
Till that dream comes true.
And so I'll keep on holding on (holding on, holding on)
Till that dream comes true...[FADE]

There are a number of Detroit Emeralds recordings on YouTube, and they're quite interesting.
