Take A Chance On Me lyrics

Laurie:
I know I have no right.
But sometimes late at night.
I watch you in the attic.
Passing back and forth like a maniac.
Ive never met a girl like you-
Anyone at all like you.
This is very nice.
Such a lovely party.
The music sounds so thrilling.
It makes a person feel like dancing

Laurie: (spoken)
Im very good! I won a medal for dancing at school.

Jo: (spoken)
I dont dance. Besides, I have a patch on the back of my dress.

Laurie: (spoken)
A patch? Let me see!

Jo: (spoken)
No! No!

Laurie: (spoken)
I like it. That patch could start a whole new fashion.
Dance with me tonight and I guarantee by next
spring, every girl in Concord will be wearing a patch on her dress!

We could do a hundred things,
Do anything you please.
We could fly on golden wings,
Across the seven seas.
Ill bet youll get a camel through an needle,
If youll take a chance on me

Jo: (spoken)
Youre a lunatic!

Laurie:
We could catch a thousand stars,
And stand them on a pin.
We could leave from here to Mars,
And make the planet spin.
If you want to do all the things youve ever dreamed of-
Come on! Take a chance on me
We could be such friends,
Friends are never lonely.
All I know is books-
Books are solitary.
But Id see you everyday,
How you live in your own way,
And you make me want to dare...
To take a chance on you!

Jo: (spoken)
All right. We could box if you like.

Laurie: (spoken)
You box?

Jo: (spoken) You ready?

Laurie: (spoken)
I should warn youI won a medal for boxing at school.

Jo: (spoken) Hm.

[MUSICAL INTERLUDE]

Jo: (spoken)
Is that how you win medals?

Laurie:
We could live a million dreams,
But only if we dare
We could go to such extremes,
Theres so much we could share!
Well circle the world,
Doing all we ever dreamed of!
And well live in our own way,
And Ill see you every day!
Well be the best of friends,
When you take a chance on me!
