If you can dish it, I can take it,
Just so you serve it to me right;
If you can dish it, I can take it,
I've got to have it morning, noon and night,
You got the hotdog, I got the bun,
Let's get together and have a little fun,
If you can dish it, I can take it,
Just so you serve it to me right!
I've got to have it, just so you serve it to me right!

If you can dish it, I can take it,
Hmmmm, serve it to me right;
If you can dish it, I can take it,
I've got to have it morning, noon and night,
Ashes to ashes, mud to mud,
I really crave my daily love.
If you can dish it, I can take it,
Just so you serve it to me right!
I've got to have it, just so you serve it to me right!

Spoken: Dish it out, dish it out, Bob! Dish that thing, boys! Somebody harmonize me!

If you can dish it, I can take it,
Hmmmm, serve it to me right;
If you can dish it, I can take it,
I've got to have it morning, noon and night,
Whip my cream, throw it in a bowl,
I want it served with my good jellyroll,
If you can dish it, I can take it,
Just so you serve it to me right!
I've got to have it, just so you serve it to me right!

If you can dish it, I can take it,
Hmmmm, serve it to me right;
If you can dish it, I can take it,
I've got to have it morning, noon and night,
If I give it away, you think it's tough,
If you can't take it, you're just a cream-puff,
If you can dish it, I can take it,
Just so you serve it to me right!
I've got to have it, just so you serve it to me right!
