"Take Her Back" as written by Oliver Robert Main, Matthew Peter George Bowman, David James Best, James David Naylor and Ryan Andrew Wilson....
He's not sure what he should do
She's seventeen, he's twenty-two
Is that too much of a difference?

So instead look what he's done
He's found a girl who's thirty-one
Is that too much of a difference?

She's got everything he wants
She's got everything he needs
(Take her back, take her back, take her back)
(Take her back, take her back, take her back to her place)

She's got everything he wants
She's got everything he needs
(Take her back, take her back, take her back)
(Take her back, take her back, take her back to her place)

She's got a mate who says behave
You're not too bad but twice her age
Does that really make any difference?

He's had a few, we've all been there
Just seventeen but he don't care
I don't think he knows the difference

'Cause she's got everything he wants
She's got everything he needs
(Take her back, take her back, take her back)
(Take her back, take her back, take her back to her place)

She's got everything he wants
She's got everything he needs
(Take her back, take her back, take her back)
(Take her back, take her back, take her back to her place)

His mates found out, he feels a fool
They saw her on the bus to school
Should that really make any difference?

What would her dad say if he knew
She's on her knees, he's twenty-two
I don't think he'd like the difference
Does that really make any difference?

'Cause she's got everything he wants
She's got everything he needs
(Take her back, take her back, take her back)
(Take her back, take her back, take her back to her place)

She's got everything he wants
She's got everything he needs
(Take her back, take her back, take her back)
(Take her back, take her back, take her back to her place)

'Cause she's got everything he wants
She's got everything he needs
(Take her back, take her back, take her back)
(Take her back, take her back, take her back to her place)

She's got everything he wants
She's got everything he needs
(Take her back, take her back, take her back)
(Take her back, take her back, take her back to her place)

    General CommentThis song is a great snap-shot about relationships. I think it is how you'd make excuses about people, ie. Age.

    Love the line...
    'what would her dad say if he knew
    she's on her knees, he's 22'
    GENIUS!

    biggd21 - check out, Little Man Tate, the View, the Zutons and the Kooks. No doubt heard of the last two.

    General CommentIt's all about how girls dress up to look older than they actually are.

    This boy thought this girl was 31 then found out she's 17, hense why he's in denial and trying to convince himself it's alright.

    As for the guy asking about English Bands..
    Bloc Party, Maximo Park, The View, The Kooks, Keane, The Libertines/Babyshambles.. to name but a few.

    General Commentwow a song about me!... if you add at least 5 years onto the bloke.

    Yh this song is brilliant, a nice angle on a relationship, age differences haven't come up for a bit in the uk.
    The woman who's 31, is this a suggestion that he's cheated on the 17 yr old (*why* would you do that!?*) with the 31 yr old, or is he pretending to his mates he's seeing a 31 yr old, or has someone tried to set him up with her...? I could go on.
