About Take Me
“Take Me” was popular when it was first released, with recordings by Tommy Dorsey, Jimmy Dorsey and Benny Goodman.


Take me, I’m yours if you’ll take me
I want you to make me a part of your heart
Hold me, I dreamed you would hold me
Now really enfold me, say we’ll never part

All the love I have to give
I want to give to you,
And as long as I shall live
I’ll only live for you,

Take me, and never forsake me
My darling, please take me and
Make your own.
