Take Us the beginning

Begin 2000 kwamen een aantal vrinden regelmatig bijeen in de Rotterdamse Kuip, om zich vooral verbaal te laten gelden. De talloze liederen van het legioen, werden op den duur, constant overstemt door dit vrindenclubje. Alom bewondering op de tribune, voor deze IL DIVO van de lage landen. Al gauw werd de gelijkenis getrokken, met de boyband Take That. De vrinden vonden dit echter een belediging, want ze waren niet alleen knapper, maar ze konden ook nog eens beter zingen. Dus riepen de vrinden: " Take That? TAKE US!

Zo ontstond al gauw de hit:

Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee!!!

Lee Lee Lee werd al gauw dubbel platina. Hierop volgde direct de hit:

The grass is always greener on the other side

My baby have left me for my neighbour
He’s got a bigger car and a bigger house
Now, I am alone and I feel poor
The only one here is the mouse

The grass is always greener on the other side
The grass is always greener on the other side
The grass is always greener, the grass is always greener
The motherfucking grass is greener on the other side

My friend have dumped me for another one
Cause I bought only one drink each night.
And when I see him he’s having fun
The grass is always greener on the other side

The grass is always greener on the other side
The grass is always greener on the other side
The grass is always greener, the grass is always greener
The motherfucking grass is greener on the other side

My footballclub didn’t make it this year
And every time it’s the same song
In the beginning everyone shout and cheer
But at the end it always goes wrong
But I’ll never leave my club for another one
And this I will sing to you with pride
There’s no club in the world with bigger fun
The grass is always greener on this side

The grass is always greener on this side
The grass is always greener on this side
The grass is always greener, the grass is always greener
The motherfucking grass is always greener on this side

Sindsdien is er geen houden meer aan en gaan de bandleden FG, Stoopid, Tafkab en Billy Billy onder het management van de Zwarte Cobra keer op keer voor goud. O.a. voor:

Ah push it stoopid

Take Us is here and we’re in effect
Want you to push it babe
Coolin’ by day then at night working up a sweat
C’mon girls, let’s go show the guys that we know
How to become number one in a hot party show

The Wild Baboon

I’ve been a wild baboon for many’s the year,
and I’ve spent all me money on whiskey and beer
but now I’m returning with gold in great store
and I never will play the wild baboon no more

Chorus:
And it’s no, nay, never
no, nay never no more
will I play the wild baboon,
no never no more

I went to an alehouse I used to frequent
I told the landlady my money was spent
I ask her for credit, she answered me nay
such a custom as yours I can have any day

Chorus

I brought from me pocket ten sovereigns bright,
and the landlady’s eyes opened wide with delight
she said:"I have whiskeys and wines of the best
and the words that you told me were only in jest"

Chorus

I’ll go home to my parents, confess what I’ve done
and I’ll ask them to pardon their prodigal son
and when they’ve caressed me, as oft times before
I never will play the wild baboon no more

Chorus
Chorus end

Hoogtepunt van de band Take Us is het jaarlijkse Take Us festival eind oktober in Renesse. Voor Renesse is gekozen, vanwege de ideale ligging van het festivalterrein de Zuidhoek, wat er altijd perfect strak bij ligt door toedoen van Rob en Mascha
