Hmm hmm mmh mmh

Mmh mmh hmm hmm
Oh oh oh oh ho
Oh oh oh oh
Woah oh ho oh oh oh oh
Ho oh oh ho oh oh oh
Ho oh oh oh
Yeah eh hey
Giving up
Is hard to do
When you really love someone
Giving up
So hard to do
When you still depend upon
Her warm and tender touch
Her kiss and her caress
Ooh that used to mean so much
And bring you happiness
Woah ho oh oh oh ho oh oh
Giving up
So hard to do
I've tried
Uh uh
But it just ain't no use
Giving up
So hard to do
I said I've tried
But it just ain't no use
But my light of hope is burning dim
But in my heart I pray yeah
That my love and faith in the girl
Woah ho oh oh oh
Will bring her back one day
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yo giving up's so hard
Yeah hey
Ooh hoo whether
Whether she knows or not
She really needs me too
Heh heh heh
The little girl is all I got
Yes she is
And giving up
Giving up is so hard to do
Woah ho
Giving up
So hard to do
Ho giving up ho
So very hard to do
I said I've tried
Hey but I just can't get loose
Wooh giving up
So hard for me to do
I don't wanna lose you
'Cos you mean so much to me
Wooh giving up
