The White Stripes

"Take, Take, Take"

[Verse 1]
I was sitting there in a comfortable chair
And that was all that I needed
Then my friend offered me a drink for us to share
And that was all that I needed
Well, then I felt at ease but then I'm not too hard to please
I guess you couldn't call me greedy

Then I was shocked to look up and see Rita Hayworth there
In a place so seedy
She walked into the bar with her long, red, curly hair
And that was all that I needed
And I said to my friend, "good god, we're lucky men
Just to even see her"

[Chorus]
Take, take, take
Take, take, take
Take, take, take

[Verse 2]
And I could not resist, I just had to get close to her
And that was all that I needed
I walked and loomed around her table for a while
And that was all that I needed
Then I said, "I hate to bug you, ma'am, but can I have your autograph?"
And that was all that I needed

She pressed her lips against a white piece of paper
And that was all that I needed
Then I saw what she wrote, my heart is in my mouth
And that was all that I needed
Then she handed it to me, and I think that she could see
That that was all that I needed

I started to walk away but then I remembered
"Hey, I forgot to get a picture"
So I asked her one more time, "Could I have another favor?"
That was all that I needed
She was kind and posed with me then I knew my friend would see
My celebrity meeting

[Chorus]
Take, take, take
Take, take, take
Take, take, take

[Verse 3]
She turned and said to me, "I need to go to sleep,"
And it seemed so mean
It's almost as if she could not appreciate
How cool I was being
She said, "good night" and walked away and I didn't know what to say
I just couldn't believe it

Well, it's just not fair, I want to get a piece of hair
That was all that I needed
Or maybe a kiss on the cheek, I wouldn't wash it for a week
That would be all that I needed
But she didn't even care that I was even there
What a horrible feeling
