Give What You Take

Don't expect a miracle to happen while you sleep
It's too bad now, if you're sad now,
You have to get up on your feet

You've got to give what you take
And baby take what you get
I'm gonna give what I take
And baby take what I get

Don't sit around pining for love that you can't have
You have to get up and with a little good luck
Now it won't seem half as bad

You've got to give what you take
And baby take what you get
I'm gonna give what I take
And baby take what I get

Don't you take offence now to the things that I just said
You'll start to smile if you think for a while
You can work it all out in your head

You've got to give what you take
And baby take what you get
I'm gonna give what I take
And baby take what I get
