Lyrics
(Take it, take it just like you give it, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Take it like you give it)

Baby, can I say that I'm sorry
For the things I said last night
But I'm doing on two, just like you
When I'm going always to do things right
And sometimes you are so very nice
But I smile and still pay the price
Now, if you love me let me see you leave it
And just take it like you give it, yeah (take it, take it just like you give it)
Take it like you give it, yeah (take it, take it just like you give it)

Baby, there's a whole lot of people (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Who just can't see the forest for the trees (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
And you just don't know, oh, how bad I am (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
For make you'll not be one of these, yeah, yeah

I wanna make up for this reason (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Don't know if you're wrong or right (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
I'm in misery, and I know you're the fee (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
For all the switches I've ever fired
So don't make it hard for me doesn't last
And if you love me let me see you leave it
And just take it like you give it, yeah (take it, take it just like you give it, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Take it like you give it, yeah (take it like you give it)
Take it like you give it, yeah (take it, take it just like you give it, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Take it like you give it
