White Stripes, The - Take, Take, Take Lyrics




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"

Take, take, take
Take, take, take
Take, take, take

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

Take, take, take
Take, take, take
Take, take, take

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

    It makes you think ...most people (even if you think you are not too hard to please) feel completely satisfied with something for only few seconds and then we need more-----it's endless. Is satisfaction and happiness lasting? Or maybe it is lasting when you don't expect it from the outside world. We shouldn't just keep changing what item or events will make us happy... since if we aren't completely happy with what we have in the moment, how will we ever be happy with more?

  5. Duh Miko

    Listenin' to this on Rita Hayworth's 100th Birthday!

  6. Amber Anderton

    AntiFa should just adopt this as there theme song.

  7. Tommy Mdladlana

    great song

  8. Sensei's Protege

    Lower your expectations when meeting your heroes, they'll be appreciative of it, guaranteed.

    Free man

    not the message of this song at all

    coleen mckay

    and to be grateful and truly satisfied with whatever you have WITHOUT expecting more. It makes you think ...most people (even if you think you are not too hard to please) feel completely satisfied with something for only few seconds and then we need more-----it's endless. Is satisfaction and happiness lasting? We shouldn't just keep changing what item or events will make us happy since if we aren't completely happy with what we have in the moment, how will we ever be happy with more.
