    Lyrics »

Didn`t I make you feel like you were the only man
And didn't I give you everything that a woman possibly can
Each time I tell myself that I can't stand the pain
You hold me in your arms and I'll say it once again
Come on, come on, come on, come on

Chorus:
Take another little piece of my heart now baby
Take another little piece of my heart
Take another little piece of my heart now baby
You know you got it if it makes you feel good

You're out on the street lookin' good
Baby deep down in your heart you know that it ain't right
You never, never, never, never hear me cry
Cry no, I cry, I cry all the time
Each time I tell myself that I can't stand the pain
You hold me in your arms and I'll say it once again
Come on, come on, come on, come on

(Chorus)

Come on, come on, come on, come on

Oh you take a piece of me
When you take my hear
Oh baby
You know you got it if it makes you feel good

(Chorus)

Take a piece of my heart
