Robert Palmer – What's It Take? lyrics

Youre lonely can I see you
I hire a private red-eye rocket
But when I walk in here
You wanna go through all my pockets

What's it take?
Mamma what's it take?

I've known you all these years
And still you overhaul my letters
They don't confirm your fears
But when I'm dead you'll know me better

What's it take?
Mamma what's it take?

My mistake was thinking I had it covered
I haven't made the first move
What's it take to get it through to you mamma?
What does it take to love you?

I take you out to dinner
You ask me why I'm acting guilty
I thought I'd backed a winner
This love affair is gonna kill me

What's it take?
Mamma what's it take?

You say you're only teasing
I wanna try a new position
You wanna know the reason
I've got a spanish inquisition

What's it take?
Mamma what's it take?

My mistake was thinking I had it covered
I haven't made the first move
What's it take to get it through to you mamma?
What does it take to love you?

I wanna hear the gossip
You say I like a real ambition
I ask you if youve got it
You document my inhibitions

What's it take?
Mamma what's it take?
Mamma what's it take?
What's it take?
