Piece Of My Heart

Bert Berns, Jerry Ragovoy originally recorded by Erma Vernice Franklin (1967) Shout Records #S-221.

Well come on - come on - come on - come on!

Didn't I make you feel, like you were the only man ?
...Well yeah!
And didn't I give you nearly everything that a woman possibly can ?
...Honey you know I did!
And each time I tell myself that now, when I think I've had enough,
But I'm gonna show you baby, that a woman can be tough.

I want you to come on - come on - come on - come on, and Take it!
Take another little piece of my heart now, baby!
--Oh, oh, Break it!
Break another little bit of my heart now, darling, yeah - yeah - yeah - yeah.
--Oh, oh, Have a!
Have another little piece of my heart now baby.
Well You know you got it, if it makes you feel good.

Oh yes indeed.

You're out on the streets looking good,
And baby deep down in your heart, I guess you know that it ain't right.
Never - never - never - never - never - never hear me when I cry out at night.
Babe and I cry all the time!
But each time I tell myself that now, when I can't stand the pain,
But when you hold me in your arms, I'll sing it once again.

I said come on - come on - come on - come on, yeah Take it!
Take another little piece of my heart now, baby.
--Oh, oh, Break it!
Break another little bit of my heart now, darling, yeah.
--Oh, oh, Have a!
Have another little piece of my heart now, baby.
Well you know you got it, child if it makes you feel good.

I need you to come on - come on - come on - come on and Take it!
Take another little piece of my heart now, baby!
--oh, oh, Break it!
Break another little bit of my heart, now darling, yeah, c'mon now.
--oh, oh, Have a!
Have another little piece of my heart now, baby.
You know you got it - whoahhhhh!!

Take it! Take another little piece of my heart now, baby.
--Oh, oh, Break it!
Break another little bit of my heart, now darling, yeah - yeah - yeah - yeah.
--Oh, oh, Have a!
Have another little piece of my heart now, baby, hey.
You know you got it, child, if it makes you feel good. ¥Ç¥
