"Take It Like A Man" as written by Steven Chrisanthou, Dan Kurtz, Martina Sorbara and Peter Prilesnik....
I get a little bit ambitious
That's why you love me
Because you can't resist it
You'd do anything for me

You want out but we're off the ground
So pick up your parachute
Cause I'm not gonna let you down
I won't let you get away, not that easy anyway

I know what I want and I want you for the cause
How does anybody get anything done? You depend on us
But you'll never get to heaven as the radical son
Just keep it up, you soldier

You want out, I can't help
I've got to make you understand
You gotta take it like a man

Do you need a dozen roses?
Would you like a box of chocolate?
Is it really such a deep cut?
That I have to come and stitch it up?

Yeah, I get a little crazy with the razor blades
Go on and call your mama if you need a band aid
But everything worth it, hurts a little bit
You don't want to run away and I won't let you anyway

Cause we're doing it for the cause
How do you suppose I get anything done? You're making it so hard
Cause you'll never get to heaven as the radical son
Just keep it up, you soldier

You want out, I can't help
I've got to make you understand
You gotta take it like a man

I want you for the cause
How does anybody get anything done? You depend on us
You'll never get to heaven as the radical son
Don't be running off 'cause this is love

What did you think it was?
Ooh, the thing is love, love
So don't go

You want out, I can't help
I've got to make you understand
You gotta take it like a man

Take it like a man
You gotta take it like a man
You gotta take it like a man

    General CommentI love this song. It's so catchy and Martina's voice is so pretty.
    I think it's going to be pretty big.

    General Commentthese lyrics are wrong
    the right ones are

    I get a little bit ambitious and that’s why you love me
    Because you can’t resist it, you’d do anything for me
    You want out but we’re off the ground, so pick up your parachute
    ‘Cause I’m not good at letting you down
    No I won’t let you get away
    Not that easy anyway

    I know what I want and I want you for the cause

    How does anybody get anything done?
    You depend on us
    You’ll never get to heaven as a radical son
    Just keep it up soldier

    You want out, I can’t help
    I’ve got to make you understand
    You’ve got to take it like a man

    Do you need a dozen roses, would you like a box of chocolate?
    Is it really such a deep cut that I have to come and stitch it up?
    Yeah I get a little crazy with the razor blades
    Go on and call your Momma if you need a band aid
    But everything worth it hurts a little bit
    You don’t wanna run away and I won’t let you anyway

    ‘Cause we’re doing it for the cause

    How do you suppose I get anything done?
    You’re making it so hard
    You’ll never get to heaven as a radical son
    Just keep it up soldier

    You want out, I can’t help
    I’ve got to make you understand
    You’ve got to take it like a man

    I want you for the cause
    How does anybody get anything done?
    You depend on us
    You’ll never get to heaven as a radical son
    Don’t be running off because this is love
    What did you think it was?
    Oh I think it’s love, love
    So don’t go

    You want out, I can’t help
    I’ve got to make you understand
    You’ve got to take it like a man
    Take it like a man
    You’ve got to take it like a man
    You’ve got to take it like a man

    General CommentThis song is awesome.
    I get the idea that it's about a relationship with a guy who's a bit too loyal to her, coming across as a wuss, and she wants him to "take it like a man" and understand that he doesn't have to do everything for her.
