Rent - Take Me Or Leave Me

rate me

Mark

Valentine's Day...Pan across the empty lot. Roger's down at Mimi's

where he's been for almost two months - tho' he talks about selling

his guitar and getting out of here. (Still jealous of Benny)... God

knows where Collins and Angel are...Could be that new Shanty Town by

the river or a suite at the Plaza...Maureen and Joanne are rehearsing.

That is if they're speaking this week...Me? I'm here. Nowhere.

Maureen

Every single day

I walk down the street

I hear people say,

"Baby's so sweet"

Ever since puberty

Everybody stares at me

Boys - girls

I can't can't help it baby

So be kind

Don't lose your mind

Just remember that I'm your baby

Take me for what I am

Who I was meant to be

And if you give a damn

Take me baby or leave me

Take me baby or leave me

A tiger in a cage

Can never see the sun

This diva needs her stage

Baby - let's have fun!

You are the one I choose

Folks'd kill to fill your shoes

You love the limelight too, baby

So be mine

Or don't waste my time

Cryin' - "Honeybear - are you still my baby?"

Take me for what I am

Who I was meant to be

And if you give a damn

Take me baby or leave me

No way - can I be what I'm not

But hey - don't you want your girl hot!

Don't fight - don't lose your head

Cause every night - who's in your bed?

Who's in your bed, baby?

Kiss, Pookie.

Joanne

It won't work.

I look before I leap

I love margins and discipline

I make lists in my sleep

Baby what's my sin?

Never quit - I follow through

I hate mess - but I love you

What to do

With my impromptu baby

So be wise

This girl satisfies

You've got a prize

But don't compromise

You're one lucky baby

Take me for what I am

Maureen

A control freak

Joanne

Who I was meant to be

Maureen

A snob - yet over-attentive

Joanne

And if you give a damn

Maureen

A lovable, droll geek

Joanne

Take me baby or leave me

Maureen

And anal retentive

Both

That's it!

Joanne

The straw that breaks my back

Both

I quit

Joanne

Unless you take it back

Both

Women

Maureen

What is it about them?

Both

Can't live -

With them -

Or without them!

Take me for what I am

Who I was meant to be

And if you give a damn

Take me baby or leave me

Take me baby

Or leave me

Guess I'm leavin'

I'm gone!
