Take 'em As They Come
Bruce Springsteen
Little girl is running through the outskirts
see her little pretty face all gone red
what's your daddy done with you?
not a friend, not a stranger comes;
you've got to take them baby as they come.

Little girl, put on your red dress
'cause we're going out on the road tonight
where the fast men all have switchblades
keep 'm short: who's going to want to fight?
you've got to take them baby as they come

Take them, take them as they come girl
take them as they come girl
take them as they come girl
take them baby as they come

God save the rider in the black night
some men say that it was right
that you would fit under it
and become what we have become;
got to take them baby as they come

Little girl, you've worn out your energy
you fade in a way to please your dad
and all the bells are ringing
love shattered and broken in the morning light;
got to take them baby as they come

refr.

And 'though your heart is breaking
I can feel it so girl
don't put your finger on the trigger baby
that's not the thing to do

Winners and losers
all look the sameon the outside
we can choose it
we could try, couldn't we now?
Got to take them baby as they come

refr.
