Take Me Or Leave Me Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Every single day
I walk down the street
I hear people say, "Baby so sweet"
Ever since puberty
Everybody stares at me
Boys, girls, I can't help it, baby
So be kind and don't lose your mind
Just remember that I'm your baby
Verse 2
Take me for what I am
Who I was meant to be
And if you give a damn
Take me baby
Or leave me
Verse 3
Take me or leave me
Verse 4
A tiger in a cage
Can never see the sun
This diva needs her stage, baby
Lets have fun
You are the one I choose
Folks will kill to fill your shoes
You love the lime light to now baby
So be mine but don't waste my time
Cryin', "Oh, honey bear are you still my, my, my baby?"
Verse 5
Take me for what I am
Who I was meant to be
And if you give a damn
Take me baby or leave me
Verse 6
No way, can I be what I'm not
But hey, don't you want your girl hot?
Oh, don't fight, don't loose your head
'Cause every night who's in your bed?
Who?
Who's in your bed?
Kiss pookie
Verse 7
It won't work
I look before I leap
I love margins and discipline
I make list in my sleep, baby
What's my sin? Never quit
I follow through
I hate mess but I love you
What do with my impromptu baby?
So be wise 'cause this girl satisfies
You got a prize but don't compromise
Your one lucky baby
Verse 8
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 (A anal retentive)
Verse 9
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
Verse 10
Take me for what I am
Who I was meant to be (who I was meant to be)
And if you give a damn (and if you give a damn then)
Take me baby, or leave me
Take me baby, take me or la la la la la leave me
Take me baby or leave me
Guess I'm leaving I'm gone
