GUEST,Azizi Lyr Req/Add: Eyes on the Prize / Hand on the Plow (34) RE: Req/Add: eyes on the prize / hand on the plow 14 May 05


"Keep Your Eyes On The Prize" {Hold On}is an open ended song to which additional verses can be added or substituted for the verses that are lsited above.

When I was a member of the youth group of the NAACP {National Association for the Advancement of Colored People} in Atlantic City, New Jersey {early 1960s}I remember singing:

Paul and Silas bound in jail
with no money to forego their bail
Keep your eyes on the prize
and hold on.

I also remember this verse:

God sent Noah the rainbow sign
Won't be water but fire next time
Keep your eyee etc.

-snip-

I also remember these two verse:

One and one they make two
tell you what I'm gonna do
Keep your eyes etc.

-snip-

Here's another verse that I remember:

When I get to heaven
Gonna sing and shout
Ain't nobody gonna keep me out {or 'put me out'}
Keep your eyes etc.

-snip-

Can anyone else remember or create any more verses for this song?
