Leave me alone
I'm in control
I'm in control
And girls lie too much
And boys act too tough
Enough is enough

Well, on the minds
Of other men
I know she was

I said, "Just take it or leave it
And take it or leave it
And take it or leave it
And take it or leave it
Oh, just take it or leave it
And take it or leave it
Oh, take it"

That's right

Oh, he's gonna let you down
He's gonna let you down
He's gonna let you down
He's gonna break your back for a chance
He's gonna steal your friends if he can
He's gonna win someday

I fell off the track, now
I can't go back
I'm not like that

Boys lie too much
Girls act too tough
Enough is enough

Well on the minds
Of other girls
I know he was

I said, "Just take it or leave it
And take it or leave it
And take it or leave it
And take it or leave it
Oh, just take it or leave it
And take it or leave it
Oh, take it"

That's right

Oh, he's gonna let you down
He's gonna let you down
He's gonna let you down
He's gonna break your back for a chance
He's gonna steal your friends if he can
He's gonna win someday

Oh, he will

    General Comment:Sorry, but none of you guys got the meaning of this yet...
    It's pretty simple. It's just saying "fuck that mating game bullshit, were girls gotta act false and guys gotta act tough. I'm out of that shit forever. This is me, take it or leave it"

    General Comment:this song is GREATTTT! :) He's warning his girl that if she leaves him for that other guy, that guy's gonna let her down :(
    "Take it or leave it"...to me, it sounds like he's offering his heart to her, and he's telling her, take it or leave it...but NOTICE how he ends each chorus with "oh take it!" He wants her...wants her bad!

    General Comment:oh man i saw them last week and they were so amazing. they were better than any group i have ever seen and they were better than on the cd. this song was last and it was defenitely the best. and drew barrymore was sitting in front of me. this song is my favorite, i think its pretty much about a guy who messed up and his girl is leaving even though hes good for her. she doesn't know it though.
