Take It Like A Man

Album: Legally Blonde (2007)
  • songfacts ®
  • This is another song from the 2007 film and later award winning stage musical Legally Blonde. Like the rest of the score, "Take It Like A Man" was written by the husband and wife team of Laurence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin. Both contributed to the music and lyrics.

    Not to be confused with any other song of the same title, including one by Bachman-Turner Overdrive, this is an ode to shopping! Performed as a duet by Elle and Emmett, the former does most of the singing as after being banished by Professor Callahan she takes him to a department store where she dresses him like Warner, the lover who dumped her at the beginning of the show with "So Much Better". >>
