"Take On Me" as written by Pal Waaktaar, Magne (mags) Furuholmen and Morten Harket....
Tell me, tell me
You can tell me, you can tell me

You need some rest
I need the Advil when I read your texts
We should take a little break or somethin' and just reconnect
You're so passive-aggressive when asking me questions
I miss dancing witchu
Make a little dinner with the candles witchu
You need a timeout and I been blowing the whistle
So if you come back bring some manners witchu
Know what I'm talking about

I'm on it, I'm on it, I'm on it, I'm out (yeah)
You claim that you shy, but you running your mouth (yeah)
Baby come do what you talking about (yeah)
The neighbors gon' think you the man of the house (ow)


Whatever it's worth girl you can tell me
You can tell me
Don't mean to say a word, but you can tell me
You can tell me
Whatever it's worth girl you can tell me
You can tell me
Don't mean to say a word, but you can tell me (yeah)
You can tell me (yeah)

This is how I feel
I feel beige
I wrote this song for you (but)
But are we on the same page? (huh)
How about we run away, yeah
Ride dolphins, eat lobsters
Shit, even bathe in champagne, yeah
Let's get married in Southern California
I heard it never rains, yeah
And life's like an evening in August, I can't complain
I can have em Donna Changs
But I'll be happy with Elaine
Can you see the beauty in a canvas?
Even when it's blank
Pick me up after you're finished and all of my remains

I'm on it, I'm on it, I'm on it, I'm out (yeah)
You claim that you shy, but you running your mouth (yeah)
Baby come do what you talking about (yeah)
The neighbours gon' think you the man of the house (ow)

Whatever it's worth girl you can tell me
You can tell me
Don't mean to say a word, but you can tell me
You can tell me
Whatever it's worth girl you can tell me
You can tell me
Don't mean to say a word, but you can tell me
You can tell me
Whatever it's worth girl you can tell me
You can tell me
Don't mean to say a word, but you can tell me
You can tell me
Whatever it's worth girl you can tell me
You can tell me
Don't mean to say a word, but you can tell me
You can tell me
