Thread Name: Lyr Add: Take Her Out of Pity/Old Maid's Song
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Take Her Out of Pity
I've never heard it except with "take me" rather than "take her". I don't know if that makes it more or less potentially offensive. I've never known anyone get offended by it anyway. And it's normally women who sing it anyway.

Has anyone ever written a version for a man who likes the idea of getting married, and can't understand why he never finds a taker?
