If you change your mind
(Take a chance, take a chance)
I'm the first in line
(Take take, chance chance)
Honey I'm still free
(Take a chance, take a chance)
Take a chance on me
(Take take, chance chance)
If you need me, let me know
(Take a chance, take a chance)
Gonna be around
(Take take, chance chance)
If you got no place to go
(Take a chance, take a chance)
When you're feeling down
(Take take, chance chance)

If you're all alone
When the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best
And it ain't no lie
If you put me to the test
if you let me try

'Cause you know I've got
So much that I wanna do
When I dream I'm alone with you
It's magic
You want me to leave it there
Afraid of a love affair
But I think you know
That I can't let go

If you change your mind
(Take a chance, take a chance)
I'm the first in line
(Take take, chance chance)
Honey I'm still free
(Take a chance, take a chance)
Take a chance on me
(Take take, chance chance)
If you need me, let me know
(Take a chance, take a chance)
Gonna be around
(Take take, chance chance)
If you got no place to go
(Take a chance, take a chance)
When you're feeling down
(Take take, chance chance)

If you're all alone
When the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best
And it ain't no lie
If you put me to the test
if you let me try

'Cause you know I've got
So much that I wanna do
When I dream I'm alone with you
It's magic
You want me to leave it there
Afraid of a love affair
But I think you know
That I can't let go

" Take a Chance on Me " is a song by the Swedish pop group ABBA . It was released in January 1978 as the second single from their fifth studio album ABBA: The Album . The song has been featured on a number of ABBA compilations such as Gold: Greatest Hits .

The working title of "Take a Chance on Me" was "Billy Boy". Written and recorded in 1977 by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus , it opens as a cold intro and was sung by Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad , with Fältskog delivering the solo passages. It has a constant uptempo throughout the entire recording. It was one of ABBA's first singles in which their manager Stig Anderson did not lend a hand in writing the lyrics, firmly establishing Andersson and Ulvaeus as a songwriting partnership.

The song's origins sprang from Ulvaeus, whose hobby was running. While running, he would sing a "tck-a-ch"-style rhythm to himself over and over again, which then evolved into "take-a-chance" and the eventual lyrics. [1] The song's B-side was " I'm a Marionette ", which, like " Thank You for the Music " and "I Wonder (Departure)" (the B-side to their previous single, " The Name of the Game "), was intended to be part of a mini-musical entitled The Girl With the Golden Hair that Andersson and Ulvaeus had planned, but ultimately shelved.
