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

Whats it take?
Mamma whats it take?

Ive known you all these years
And still you overhaul my letters
They dont confirm your fears
But when Im dead youll know me better

Whats it take?
Mamma whats it take?

My mistake was thinking I had it covered
I havent made the first move
Whats 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 Im acting guilty
I thought Id backed a winner
This love affair is gonna kill me

Whats it take?

Mamma whats it take?

You say youre only teasing
I wanna try a new position
You wanna know the reason
Ive got a spanish inquisition

Whats it take?
Mamma whats it take?

My mistake was thinking I had it covered
I havent made the first move
Whats 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

Whats it take?
Mamma whats it take?
Mamma whats it take?
Whats it take?
