Jim Dixon Lyr Add: Songs sung by Stan Boreson (17) Lyr Add: I'LL TAKE HER BACK (Stan Boreson) 27 Feb 20


This novelty song is NOT sung with a Scandinavian accent. Boreson accompanies himself on accordion. You can hear it at the Internet Archive:


I'LL TAKE HER BACK
As recorded by Stan Boreson, Linden (102 B), 1948.

Though she's cheated me before
And I know she'll cheat some more,
I'll take her back; I'll take her back.
Though she's broken ev'ry part
Of my sad and aching heart,
I'll take her back; I'll take her back.
She told me she's a one-man woman, that gal o' mine.
Yep, she's a one-man woman—one man at a time.
I'll let her go out with men
On the weekends now and then,
If she'll come back, if she'll come back.

Though she's left me all alone
With a mortgage on our home,
I'll take her back; I'll take her back.
Though she's broken ev'ry vow,
Still, the way that I feel now,
I'll take her back; I'll take her back.
[§] My better judgment tells me that she will do me harm,
But you can't hold your better judgment in your empty arms.
As I live, I'll never learn.
If she only will return,
I'll take her back; I'll take her back.

[Repeat from §.]

I'll take her lips.
I'll take her heart.
I'll take her back.
I'll take her back.
