The Searchers - Take Me For What I'm Worth (1965)

Formed in 1959 and getting their name from a John Wayne film, this group was the second act out of Liverpool (the first being The Beatles) to have a hit in the United States. You may be familiar with their most well-known song "Needles and Pins."

This song was written and originally recorded by P.F. Sloan.

Lyrics:

Don't try and understand me, you never could do that
Aw, and in the end you'd wind up being hurt
I'm a man with too many problems that keep pounding on my brain

So if you want me you'll take me for what I'm worth
(If you want me you'll take me for what I'm worth)

I don't pretend to be a saint, my sins they are many
But there's no-one perfect in this universe
And though you think I'm weird, don't try and change me dear

'Cause if you want me you'll take me for what I'm worth
(If you want me you'll take me for what I'm worth)

Hear a howlin’ wind outside my door, there's restlessness within
Oh, I'm like a raincloud that one day may burst
We both know I'll be leavin' and if one little tear you grieve

Aw, it's alright 'cause that's all I'm really worth
(It's alright 'cause that's all I'm really worth)

And if you think about me in your lonesome hours
Aw, and on your lips there's a sweet word and not a curse
Aw, then I'll be comin' back one day when my wandering’s over

Aw, if you want me you'll take me for what I'm worth
(If you want me you'll take me for what I'm worth)
Aw, if you want me you'll take me for what I'm worth
(If you want me you'll take me for what I'm worth)
