Dolly Parton – The Giving And The Taking lyrics

I keep on a' givin'
And I took all the takin'
I gave all my love to you
And I took all your hurt
I treated you so good
But you treated me like dirt
They say love is give and take
Now my poor heart is breakin'
I keep on a' givin'
And I took all the takin'
I always gave you everything
That I knew how to give I would for you
I treated you too good for my own good
Now I'm along and left forsaken
I keep on a' givin'
And took all the takin'
The giving and the takin'
Has caused my heart to break
I've given all that I can give
And I have taken all that I can take

The giving and the takin'
Has caused my heart to break
I've given all that I can give
And I have takin' all that I can take
