Searchers, The - Take It Or Leave It Lyrics




You can turn off and on more times
Than a flashin' neon sign
When you want, you're bad
But you can be so kind

Just take it or leave it
Don't tell your friend
Just want you're gonna do now
You take it or you leave it, it's just my life

There've been times when you tried makin' eyes
At all my so called friends
Then you go, now you're back
But you can be so kind

Just take it or leave it
Don't tell your friend
Just what you're gonna do now
You take it or you leave it, it's just my life

I'm sick and tired of the smile that you give
When you don't come home at night
Said you'd call that's a lie
But you can be so kind

Just take it or leave it
Don't tell your friend
Just what you're gonna do now
You take it or you leave it, it's just my life

  3. Williams Postoronnim

    Сколь милы эти джентельмены 60-х. И ныне их песни столь же узнаваемы как и во времена нашей молодости!

  4. Kees Sander

    Mijn eerste singel en nog steeds mooi

  5. Rick Sanchez

    You can turn off and on more times
    Than a flashin' neon sign
    When you want, you're bad
    But you can be so kind

    Just take it or leave it
    Don't tell your friend
    Just want you're gonna do now
    You take it or you leave it, it's just my life

    There've been times when you tried makin' eyes
    At all my so called friends
    Then you go, now you're back
    But you can be so kind

    Just take it or leave it
    Don't tell your friend
    Just what you're gonna do now
    You take it or you leave it, it's just my life

    I'm sick and tired of the smile that you give
    When you don't come home at night
    You'd call that's a lie
    You but you can be so kind

    Just take it or leave it
    Don't tell your friend
    Just what you're gonna do now
    You take it or you leave it, it's just my life

  8. Mark Jones

    A classic like so many of thiers. The Searchers my first love as a 5 year old.

  9. Bert Spierings

    Sometimes the cover is better than the original. What a great song, and so very very true...

  10. Wyatt Podmore

    A class act

  11. Tonetwisters

    I think Chris Curtis made a huge mistake in forcing out their original bassist. BIG mistake.

  12. antonio sarroca

  17. Deanne Harrall

    I cried when I heard this played on Heartbeat tonight, brought back memories, I’m 72 in two weeks time, where has the time gone? Enjoyed it without tears this time, they look so young, lovely sixties.

    Tonetwisters

    I am 71, myself. The time has gone to our families and others, and ultimately to God. Please do not leave this world without Jesus. And BTW: I have long been the world's biggest Searchers fan ... Until I met you ...

    vrccb

    I have just turned 69 and this took me straight back to a night in Caesars Palace Luton (when it was safe to be there) when I was 22 years old and went with an American Gulfstream pilot to listen to the Searchers live. A night of passion and freedom and fun. This makes my heart ache so badly.

    Martin Brzeczek

    I’m 73, Where has the time gone??

  18. Diane Shepherd

    Take it or leave it? I will take it thank you, except it's not "it". It's "he". I refer to Mike. In my eyes, a HUNK.

  19. Bert Spierings

    As a Stones fan - the real ones with Brian - i have to admid. This is the best version.
