take what you take lyrics – lily allen

a picture paints a thousand words,
as one door closes, another door opens,
and two wrongs don’t make a right
now good things come to those who wait,
take the highs with the lows dear,
you’ll get what your given and everything’s gonna be alright.

what the f*ck do you know?
just cos you’re old you think your wise,
but who the h*ll are you though,
i didn’t even ask for your advice
you wanna keep your mouth shut,
you wanna take your thoughts elsewhere,
cos you’re doing in my nut,
and do you think i care?

[chorus:]
say what you say,
do what you do
feel what you feel,
as long as it’s real.
i said take what you take
and give what you give
just be what you want,
just as long as it’s real.

now by a horse, i once was told
that all that glitters is not gold
and all that is to fear is fear itself.
this horsey also told me,
i should keep my friends close but keep my enemies closer,
so as to protect myself.

what the f*ck do you know?
just cos you’re old you think your wise,
but who the h*ll are you though,
i didn’t even ask for your advice
you wanna keep your mouth shut,
you wanna take your thoughts elsewhere,
cos you’re doing in my nut,
and do u think care?

[chorus]

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

[chorus x4]
