Lyrics 

If you change your mind

I’m the first in line

Honey, I’m still free

Take a chance on me

If you need me, let me know

Gonna be around

If you’ve got no place to go

When you’re feeling down

If you’re all alone

When the pretty birds have flown

Honey, I’m still free

Take a chance on me

Gonna do my very best

And it ain’t no lie

If you put me to the test

If you let me try

Take a chance on me

That’s all I ask of you, honey

Take a chance on me

We can go dancing (oh)

We can go walking (yeah)

As long as we’re together (long as we’re together)

Listen to some music (oh)

Maybe just talking (yeah)

Get to know you better (get to know you better)

‘Cause you know I’ve got

So much that I wanna do

When I dream I’m alone with you, it’s magic

You want me to leave it there

Afraid of a love affair, but I think you know

That I can’t let go

If you change your mind

I’m the first in line

Honey, I’m still free

Take a chance on me

If you need me, let me know

Gonna be around

If you’ve got no place to go

When you’re feeling down

If you’re all alone

When the pretty birds have flown

Honey, I’m still free

Take a chance on me

Gonna do my very best

And it ain’t no lie

If you put me to the test

If you let me try

Take a chance on me

Come on, give me a break, will you?

Take a chance on me

Oh, you can take your time, baby (oh)

I’m in no hurry (yeah)

Know I’m gonna get you (know I’m gonna get you)

You don’t wanna hurt me (oh)

Baby, don’t worry (yeah)

I ain’t gonna let you (I ain’t gonna let you)

Let me tell you now

My love is strong enough

To last when things are rough, it’s magic

You say that I waste my time

But I can’t get you off my mind, no, I can’t let go

‘Cause I love you so

If you change your mind

I’m the first in line

Honey, I’m still free

Take a chance on me

If you need me, let me know

Gonna be around

If you’ve got no place to go

If you’re feeling down

If you’re all alone

When the pretty birds have flown

Honey, I’m still free

Take a chance on me

Gonna do my very best

Baby, can’t you see?

Gotta put me to the test

Take a chance on me

Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance on me

Ba-ba-ba, ba, ba

Ba-ba-ba, ba, ba

Honey, I’m still free

Take a chance on me

Gonna do my very best

Baby, can’t you see

Gotta put me to the test

Take a chance on me

Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance on me

Ba-ba-ba, ba, ba

Ba-ba-ba, ba, ba, ba-ba

Honey, I’m still free

Take a chance on me

Gonna do my very best

Baby, can’t you see

Gotta put me to the test

Take a chance on me
