The White Stripes' Lyrics

Take, Take, Take

I was sittin' there, I had 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

And 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
Well, to just even see her"

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

Yeah, 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 pose with me
Then I know my friends 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 did not appreciate
How cool I was being
She said, "Goodnight" and walked away
And I didn't know what to say
I just couldn't believe it

Well it's just not fair, I wanted to get a piece of hair
And 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
