Al Jarreau – Take Five lyrics
Won't you stop and take a little time out with me, just take five;
Stop your busy day and take the time out to see I'm alive.

Though I'm going out of my way,
Just so I can pass by each day,
Not a single word do we say,
It's a pantomime and not a play

Still I know our eyes often meet,
I feel tingles down to my feet,
When you smile that's much too discrete,
Sends me on my way.

Wouldn't it be better not to be so polite, you could offer a light;
Start a little conversation now, it's alright, just take five, just take
Five.

[Improvisation]

Though I'm going out of my way,
Just so I can pass by each day,
Not a single word do we say,
It's a pantomime and not a play

Still I know our eyes often meet,
I feel tingles down to my feet,
When you smile that's much too discrete,
Sends me on my way.

Wouldn't it be better not to be so polite, you could offer a light;
Start a little conversation now, it's alright, just take five, just take
Five
