You're lonely, can I see you?
I hire a private red eye rocket
But when I walk in here
(Ohh)
You wanna go through all my pockets

What's it take?
Mamma, what's it take?

I've known you all these years
And still you overhaul my letters
They don't confirm your fears
(Ohh)
But when I'm dead you'll know me better

What's it take?
Mamma, what's it take?

My mistake was thinking I had it covered
(Ohh)
I haven't made the first move
What's it take to get it through to you Mamma?
(Ohh)
What does it take to love you?

I take you out to dinner
(Ohh)
You ask me why I'm acting guilty
I thought I'd backed a winner
(Ohh)
This love affair is gonna kill me

What's it take?
Mamma, what's it take?

You say you're only teasin'
I wanna try a new position
(Ohh)
You wanna know the reason
(Ohh)
I've got a Spanish Inquisition

What's it take?
Mamma, what's it take?

My mistake was thinkin' I had it covered
(Ohh)
I haven't made the first move
What's it take to get it through to you Mamma?
(Ohh)
What does it take to love you?

I wanna hear the gossip
(Ohh)
You say I lack a real ambition
I ask you if you've got it
(Ohh)
You document my inhibitions

What's it take?
Mamma, what's it take?
Mamma, what's it take?
What's it take?
