Lyrics

He gives another smile, tries to understand her side

To show that he cares

She can't stay in the room

She's consumed with everything that's been goin' on

She says

[Chorus]

Whatever happens, don't let go of my hand

Everything will be alright, he assures her

But she doesn't hear a word that he say

Preoccupied, she's afraid

Afraid what they've been doing's not right

He doesn't know what to say, so he prays

Whatever, whatever, whatever

[Chorus]

Whatever happens, don't let go of my hand

Whatever happens, don't let go of my hand

Whatever happens, don't you let go of my hand

Don't let go of my hand

Don't let go of my hand

He's working day and night, thinks he'll make her happy

Forgetting all the dreams that he had

He doesn't realize it's not the end of the world

It doesn't have to be that bad

She tried to explain, "It's you that makes me happy,"

Whatever, whatever, whatever

[Chorus]

Whatever happens, don't let go of my hand

See, whatever happens, don't let go of my hand

Whatever happens, don't let go of my hand

See, whatever happens, don't let go of my hand

See, whatever happens, don't you let go of my hand

See, don't you do it baby

I said yeah

Don't you let go baby

See, you

Don't you do it

Whatever happens, don't let go of my hand

Whatever happens, don't let go of my hand

Whatever happens, don't you let go of my hand

Don't you let go baby

Don't you, don't you let go

I said yeah

Can I get how it feels baby

Don't you let go baby

Yeah

Oh

Whatever happens, just don't let go of, my hand.

[Carlos Santana:] Thank you, man!

[Michael Jackson:] Thank you, Carlos!

Trivia
