Oh this is a favourite from the 70s.
That intro! Gets my feet tapping even now, over 45 years later!

Take me
Take me girl I’m ready
Oh please oh please
Please don’t change your mind

For my wrongs I’ve no excuses
I couldn’t blame you if you refused me
Girl you caught me in my childish games
But I’m a new man, girl, I’ve changed, oh

I’ll be a yo-yo on your finger
You can bounce me up and down honey
I’ll do anything to win you
Ah, but don’t let me hit the ground, oh, come on

Take me
Take me girl I’m ready (I’m ready for you honey)
Oh please oh please (Oh please oh please now)
Please don’t change your mind (honey don’t change your mind now)
Take me
Take me girl I’m ready
Oh please oh please
Please don’t change your mind

Girl I know you don’t want me back
But what can we gain by that?
If your love is still the same
Don’t make me wait in vain oh
We are losing while we’re waiting
This love we know so well, honey
So why are you hesitating
Why you want to put me through this Hell
Come on honey

Take me (take me)
Take me girl I’m ready (I’m ready for you honey)
Oh please oh please (Oh please oh please)
Please don’t change your mind (honey don’t change your mind now)
Take me
Take me girl I’m ready
Oh please oh please
Please don’t change your mind

Take me
Take me girl I’m ready
Oh please oh please
Please don’t change your mind

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
