Take my Dis & Dat

by Aaron Enos

Take my this and take my that
Take it all I’ll get it back
I have God I’ll never lack
Keep it all don’t bring it back
Take my Car
Drive it far
Drive fast if you like
If you like I’ve a bike
Take that too if you like
Take my house
But leave my spouse
Take my shirt and take her blouse
Take the keyboard and the mouse
I have a home I need no house
Take my Job
But leave my kids
Take that job Mr. Bob
What’s my job without my kids
Leave my kids my job I won’t miss
Take my Benz
But leave my friends
Yes to me that makes sense
Cars change with changing trends
But these friends don’t change with trends
