|Take me out tonight
 
Where there's music and there's people
 
And they're young and alive
 
 
 
Driving in your car
 
I never never want to go home
 
Because I haven't got one
 
Anymore
 
 
 
Take me out tonight
 
Because I want to see people
 
And I want to see life
 
 
 
Driving in your car
 
Oh, please don't drop me home
 
Because it's not my home, it's their home
 
And I'm welcome no more
 
 
 
And if a double-decker bus crashes into us
 
To die by your side is such a heavenly way to die
 
And if a ten-ton truck kills the both of us
 
To die by your side, well, the pleasure, the privilege is mine
 
 
 
Take me out tonight
 
Take me anywhere
 
I don't care, I don't care, I don't care
 
 
 
And in the darkened underpass
 
I thought, oh, God, my chance has come at last
 
But then a strange fear gripped me and I just couldn't ask
 
 
 
 
Take me out tonight
 
Take me out tonight
Oh, take me anywhere

I never never want to go home
