The radiator says 95
But I ain't felt a drop of heat all night
Here in this motel, there's no telling me nothing
I come here five nights a week
To clean the toilets and change these sheets
My name's Maggie Durant, baby ain't that something

CHORUS:
If you want it
Come and get it
If you want it, come and get it and understand
You take me as I am

I know these corners, I know these streets
The curb-side Prophet there yelling at me
He can save my soul for a drink and a dollar
Yeah, he's yelling about my tattoos
But we all live with the scars we choose
They might hurt like hell, but they all make us stronger

CHORUS:
If you want it
Come and get it
If you want it, come and get it and understand
You take me as I am

I'm slow to trust but I'm quick to love
I push too hard and I give too much
I ain't saying I'm perfect, but I promise I'm worth it
Now I'm standing here in front of you
Tell me boy, what you gonna do?
Cause my name's Maggie Durant, I said, ain't that something

CHORUS(2X):
If you want it
Come and get it
If you want it, come and get it and understand
You take me as I am
