About Ready to Take a Chance Again

"Ready to Take a Chance Again" is a 1978 international hit single performed by Barry Manilow. The song was composed by Charles Fox, with lyrics by Fox's writing partner, Norman Gimbel. Manilow conceived and supervised the song's recording in partnership with Ron Dante. It is the theme song of the movie, Foul Play, starring Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase. It is one of two Manilow songs featured in that movie, the other being "Copacabana". The song recounts the experience of a despairing man who has been hurt by love and therefore has retreated into the safety of an emotional shell. His life then continues on a flat but even keel until he meets someone who causes him to consider taking a chance with love again. Both the 45 RPM single and the track on Manilow's hit collections are monaural, despite being labeled otherwise. The only source for this song in true stereo is the original Foul Play soundtrack.

You remind me I live in a shell
Safe from the past and doin' okay but not very well
No jolts, no surprises, no crisis arises
My life goes along as it should
It's all very nice, but not very good

And I'm ready to take a chance again
Ready to put my love on the line with you
Been livin' with nothing to show for it
You get what you get when you go for it
And I'm ready to take a chance again with you

When she left me, in all my despair
I just held on, my hopes were all gone
Then I found you there

And I'm ready to take a chance again
Ready to put my love on the line with you
Been livin' with nothing to show for it
You get what you get when you go for it

And I'm ready to take a chance again
Ready to put my love on the line with you
Been livin' with nothing to show for it
You get what you get when you go for it

And I'm ready to take a chance again
Ready to take a chance again with you
With you
