Take Me or Leave Me Maureen:
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

Take me for what i am
Who i was meant to be
And if you give a damn
Take me baby
Or leave me



Take me baby or leave me

Maureen:
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 would kill to fill your shoes
You love the lime light to now baby
So be mine and don't waste my time
Cryin' 'oh honey bear are you still my, my, my baby?'

Take me for what i am
Who i was meant to be
And if you give a damn
Take me baby or leave me

No way, can i be what i'm not
But hey, don't you want your girl hot?
Don't fight, don't lose your head
'Cause every night who's in your bed?
Who?
Who's in your bed?

Spoken:kiss pookie

Joanne:
It won't work
I look before i leap
I love margins and discipline
I make lists in my sleep baby
Whats my sin?
Never quit
I follow through
I hate mess but i love you
What do with my improptu baby?
So be wise 'cause this girl satisfies
You got a prize so don't compromise
You're one lucky baby

Joanne: take me for what i am
Maureen: a control freak
Joanne: who i was meant to be
Maureen: a snob yet over attentive
Joanne: and if you give a damn
Maureen: a loveable droll geek
Joanne: take me baby or leave me
Maureen: an an*l retentive

Both: thats it
Joanne: the straw that breaks my back
Both: i quit
Joanne: unless you take it back
Both: women
Maureen: what is it about them?
Both: can't live with them or without them

Chorus:
Both: take me for what i am
Joanne: who i was meant to be
Maureen: who i was meant to be
And if you give a damn
Joanne: and if you give a damn then
Take me baby, or leave me
Maureen:take me baby, take me or la-la-la-la-la-leave me
Both: take me baby or leave me
Spoken: guess i'm leaving i'm gone!
