Lyrics

Take me out tonight

where there's music and there's people who are 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 lights 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 such a heavenly way to die and if a ten ton truck kills the both of us to die by your side the pleasure and the privilege is mine take me out tonight oh take me anywhere, 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 anywhere, I don't care just driving in your car I never want to go home because I haven't got one I haven't got one
