Can You Take It Lyrics

Artist: John Mellencamp
Album: American Fool

I was courting a southern belle
Her Daddy was a rich un, too
Sports car outside her door
She was pretty good lookin, too

You call me up, want me to come over
When the servants are all in bed
And she said,"Daddys on a flight tonight
Does that put any ideas in your head?"

I say to her:

CHORUS:
Take it all the way
Can you really take it all the way down
Can you really take it all the way down
Down down
Down down down

So we watch a little TV
I drink up the family wine
She said,"Youre such a snake in the grass, boy
But tonight youre mine"

But wait a minute, wait a minute baby
Are you tryin to make a fool out of me
She said,"Ive seen men like you, before
Ive got a long family tree"

And she said to me:

CHORUS:
Take it all the way
Can you really take it all the way down
Can you really take it all the way down
Down down
Down down down

And I say to myself, "Even a fool like me can be the loving kind"
Even a fool like me can be the loving kind

CHORUS:
Take it all the way
Can you really take it all the way down
Can you really take it all the way down
Down down
Down down down
