Love for Tender Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

You won't take my love for tender
You can put your money where your mouth is
But you're so unsure
I could be a miser or a big spender
But you might get much more than you bargained for

Check in on a checkmate
Grassin' on a classmate
So beautiful and fortunate
You're the one who hates to love
But he's the one who loves to hate

And he can fix you all for good
Because he is the neighborhood
You can get money for blood
Blood money for doin' no good

Better tell me now, have you made your selection?
Are you ready for correction?
'Cause the wages of sin are an expensive infection

It'll make you bankrupt
Better pay up now don't interrupt
I'm so in love, I'm so sincere
Just like a well-known financier
You know, I've never been corrupt

I'll pay you a compliment
And you'll think I am innocent
You can total up the balance sheet
And never know if I'm a counterfeit

You won't take my love for tender
You won't take my love for tender
You won't take my love
You won't take my love
You won't take my love
You won't take my love, no, no, no
