Give vs. Take

Postby Asaf » September 25th, 2012, 8:41 pm

I'm done with singing of suns and moons. I got a new battle to start. And to keep it relatively manageable, no variations of the words. No GIVEN/TAKEN or GIVING/TAKING. And definitely no GAVE/TOOK. Though adding an S is fine. Why be a fascist about things, after all?

"Give a little bit
Give a little bit of your love to me
I'll give a little bit
I'll give a little bit of my love to you
There's so much that we need to share
So send a smile and show you care"
-Supertramp


"What I've got you've got to give it to your mamma
What I've got you've got to give it to your pappa
What I've got you've got to give it to your daughter
You do a little dance and then you drink a little water."
-Red Hot Chili Peppers


"So Give Give Give me more more more. I'd like it all"
-The Wonderstuff


GIVE - 3
TAKE - 0

I don't really know this game, so let me know if I'm playing it wrong. Here's my go at it:



I want you to come on, come on, come on, come on and take it,
Take it!
Take another little piece of my heart now, baby!

- Janice Joplin


Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best, baby can't you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me
(Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance on me)

- ABBA


I can take you home
I can take you out, I can take you home
I can take you oh-oh-oh where you wanna go
I can pick it up, we could take it slow
I can take you home

- The Biebs

All of me
Why not take all of me
Can't you see
I'm no good without you
Take my lips
I want to lose them
Take my arms
I'll never use them...

GIVE - 4
TAKE - 5

Duke Ellington:

You must take the A train
To go to Sugar Hill way up in Harlem
If you miss the A train
You'll find you missed the quickest way to Harlem
Hurry, get on, now it's coming
Listen to those rails a-humming
All aboard, get on the A train
Soon you will be on Sugar Hill in Harlem

GIVE - 4
TAKE - 6

"Since I Fell for You"

When you just give love, and never get love,
You'd better let love depart.
I know it's so, and still I know,
I can't get you out of my heart...

TAKE - 6

I'm glad to give my love to you
I know you feel the way I do
Anything you want, you got it
Anything you need, you got it
Anything at all, you got it
Baby

Take it easy, take it easy
Don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy
Lighten up while you still can
Don't even try to understand
Just find a place to make your stand and take it easy

GIVE - 6
TAKE - 7

Go take your sister then by the hand
Lead her away from this foreign land
Far away where we might laugh again
We are leaving, you don't need us

Hey farmer, farmer
Put away that DDT now
Give me spots on my apples
But leave me the birds and the bees
Please!

I said take me to the dance
Do you want to dance?
I love to dance
And I told him
They don't take chances
They seem so removed from romance

In France They Kiss on Main Street - Joni Mitchell
