Marty Robbins – The Taker lyrics

He's a giver and he'll give her the kind
Of attention that she's never known
He's a helper and he'll help her to
Open the doors that she can't on her own
He's a lover and he'll love her in ways
That she never has been loved before
He's a getter and he'll get her by gettin'
Her into the world she's been hungryin' for

He's a charmer and he'll charm her with
Money and manners that I never learned
He's a leader and he'll lead her across
Pretty bridges he's plannin' to burn
He's a talker and he'll talk her right off
Of her feet but he won't talk for long
'Cause he's a doer and he'll do her like I never did
And he'll take pride in doin' her wrong

'Cause he's a taker, he'll take her to places
And make her fly higher than she's ever dared to
He'll take his time before taking advantage of,
Takin' her easy and slow
And after he's taken the body and soul that she gives him
He'll take her for granted
Then he'll take off and leave her
Takin' all of her pride when he goes
Then he'll take off and leave her
Takin' all of her pride when he goes
