Give vs. Take

Improvisors behaving badly.

Also Joni Mitchell (and one of my favorite songs):
"Shades Of Scarlett Conquering"

Out of the fire like catholic saints
Comes scarlett and her deep complaint
Mimicking tenderness she sees
In sentimental movies
A celluloid rider comes to town
Cinematic lovers sway
Plantations and sweeping ballroom gowns
Take her breath away

GIVE - 7
TAKE - 11

Paul Simon...

No I would not give you false hope
On this strange and mournful day
But the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away

Kodachrome
They give us those nice bright colors
They give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world's
a sunny day
I got a Nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So mama don't take my Kodachrome away

Crap!

It's a light and tumble journey
From the East side to the park.
Just a fine and fancy ramble to the zoo.
But you can take the cross-town bus
If it's rainning or it's cold.
And the animals will love it if you do...

At the Zoo!

that reminds me! from the blessed Cole Porter...

While I give to you and you give to me
True love, true love
So on and on it will always be
True love, true love

If you don't take her out tonight,
She's gonna change her mind,
(She's gonna change her mind)
And I will take her out tonight,
And I will treat her kind.
(I'm gonna treat her kind)

You're gonna lose that girl.
(Yes, Yes, You're gonna lose that girl)
You're gonna lose that girl.
(Yes, Yes, You're gonna lose that girl)
-The Beatles

Take me out to the Ballgame
Take me out to the crowd
Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack
I don't care if I never go back.

Give me some men who are stout-hearted men
Who will fight for the right they adore
Start me with ten who are stout-hearted men
And I'll soon give you ten thousand more

Sting...

Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I'll be watching you

Seven Days was all she wrote
A kind of ultimatum note
She gave to me, she gave to me <<< DISQUALIFIED!

Annie Oakley:

Got no mansion, got no yacht,
Still I'm happy with what I got.
I've got the sun in the morning
And the moon at night.
Sunshine gives me a lovely day,
Moonlight gives me the Milky Way.

Nat King Cole:

Once in a while,
Will you try
To give one little thought to me,
Though someone else may be
Nearer your heart?

Also NKC, although give/take neutral:

Love is all that I can give to you
Love is more than just a game for two
Two in love can make it
Take my heart and please don't break it
Love was made for me and you

awww - of course, Ray Charles!

You give your hand to me
And then you say, "Hello."
And I can hardly speak,
My heart is beating so.
And anyone can tell
You think you know me well.
Well, you don't know me.

When I fall in love it will be forever
Or I'll never fall in love
In a restless world like this is
Love is ended before it's begun
And too many moonlight kisses
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun
When I give my heart it will be completely
Or I'll never give my heart
And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you.

"GIVE" FTW!

The silver knives are flashing in the tired old cafe. A ghost climbs on the table in a bridal negligee. She says "My body is the life; my body is the way." I raise my arm against it all and I catch the bride's bouquet.
