Take Me Or Leave Me Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Every single day, I walk down the street
I hear people say, "Baby's so sweet"
Every since puberty, everybody stares at me
Boys-girls, I can't help it, baby

So be kind, don't lose your mind
Just remember that I'm your baby

Take me for what I am
Who I was meant to be
And if you give a damn
Take me baby or leave me
Take me baby or leave me

A tiger in a cage, can never see the sun
This diva needs her stage, baby, let's have fun
You are the one I choose, folks would kill to fill your shoes
You love the limelight too now baby

So be mine or don't waste my time
Cryin', "Oh honey bear, are you still my, my, my baby?"

Take me for what I am
Who I was meant to be
And if you give a damn
Take me baby or leave me

No way, can I be what I'm not?
But hey, don't you want your girl hot?
Don't fight, don't lose your head
'Cause every night, who's in your bed?

Who, who's in your bed?
[Incomprehensible]
It won't work

I look before I leap, I love margins and discipline
I make lists in my sleep, baby, what's my sin?
Never quit, I follow through, I hate mess that I love you
What to do with my impromptu baby?

So be wise 'cause this girl satisfies
You've got a prize but don't compromise
You're one lucky baby

Take me for what I am
(A control freak)
Who I was meant to be?
(A snob, yet over-attentive)
And if you give a damn
(A lovable, droll geek)
Take me baby or leave me
(And anal retentive)

That's it, the straw that breaks my back
I quit unless you take it back
Women, what is it about them?
Can't live with them or without them

Take me for what I am
Who I was meant to be
And if you give a damn
Take me baby or leave me
Take me baby or leave me
Guess, I'm leavin', I'm gone
