The Lyrics

Won't you take mine, I'm holding up the line
Lady, won't you please
Take a check from me
If you need some ID, gonna pull it out
Now hurry up, my chicken wings are getting cold
If you'd punch it in before I get too old
Lady, won't you please
Take a check from me
Gonna go crazy and it ain't no lie
If I wait any longer, just give it a try

Take a check from me
(That's all I ask of you lady)
Take a check from me

We can do this together, we can run it through, stop staring at the ceiling
So I can go shoppin, maybe do some laundry, pick up the dry cleaning
'Cos you see I've got
So much that I have to do and lady you know it's true
It's tragic
I'm a nervous wreck, you're afraid it's a stolen check
But I think you know
That it isn't so

Won't you take mine, I'm holding up the line
Lady, won't you please
Take a check from me
If you need some ID, gonna pull it out
Now hurry up, my chicken wings are getting cold
If you'd punch it in before I get too old
Lady, won't you please
Take a check from me
Gonna go crazy and it ain't no lie
If I wait any longer, just give it a try

Take a check from me
(Come on, hurry up will you?)
Take a check from me

Can you take any longer, I'm in a hurry, now I'm gonna be late
You don't wanna make me mad, it would be bad, you want to seal your fate
Let me tell you now
My patience is wearing out, but I wouldn't pout
It's tragic
You say that the machine won't take it, but I can't believe it
No I won't accept
The word reject

Won't you take mine, I'm holding up the line
Lady, won't you please
Take a check from me
If you need some ID, gonna pull it out
Now hurry up, my chicken wings are getting cold
If you'd punch it in before I get too old
Lady, won't you please
Take a check from me
Gonna go crazy and it ain't no lie
If I wait any longer, just give it a try
Gonna go crazy lady won't you please
If I wait any longer, take a check from me
(Take a check, take a check, take a check from me)

Ba ba ba ba baa, ba ba ba ba baa
Lady won't you please
Take a check from me
Gonna go crazy, lady won't you please
If I wait any longer, take a check from me
(Take a check, take a check, take a check from me)
Ba ba ba ba baa, ba ba ba ba baa
Lady won't you please
Take a check from me

Pacing misses a syllable here and there, but you stuck fairly close to the original rhyme scheme and chose a funny topic. 4-5-5 here!
