    Context would help but "take me on" can mean to be challenged. But never heard/read "take on me".

    Cool Re: take on

    Thank you.

    You can hear that in Aha's song : " Take me on".

    In the chorus, he says : "take on me, ...take me on".

    Does that help?

    Thank you

    Re: take on

    Songs and poetry can juxtapose words in a way that we would not use otherwise. That appears to be what you have found.

    Ill be gone
    In a day or two so needless to say
    Iím odds and ends
