The title of a song in Mamma Mia! is 'Take a chance on me'. What does that (Take a chance on me) mean? My dictionaries gave no reference. Is it frequent in common parlance?
Thanks a lot.
If you bet lots of money on a horse, you are taking a chance.
If you are planning to move away to a different country, but you aren't sure if you will like living there - you are taking a chance.
Taking a chance is accepting that a situation/choice involves chance: its outcome is uncertain.
