"Take Me Home Tonight" as written by Michael David Leeson, Peter Benson Vale, Ellie Greenwich, Jeff Barry and Phillip Spector....
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Yeah, yeah, eeh, yeah, eeh, yeah

I feel a hunger, it's a hunger
That tries to keep a man awake at night
Are you the answer I shouldn't wonder
When I feel you whet my appetite

With all the power you're releasing
It isn't safe to walk the city streets alone
Anticipation's running through me
Let's find the key and turn this engine on

I can feel you breathe
I can feel your heart beat faster

Take me home tonight
I don't want to let you go till you see the light
Take me home tonight
Listen honey
Just like Ronnie sang
Be my little baby
Oh, oh, oh

I get frightened in all this darkness
I get nightmares I hate to sleep alone
I need some company a guardian angel
To keep me warm when the cold winds blow

I can feel you breathe
I can feel your heart beat faster

Take me home tonight
I don't want to let you go till you see the light
Take me home tonight
Listen honey
Just like Ronnie sang
Be my little baby
Be my little baby

Just like Ronnie sang
I said, just like Ronnie sang
Be my little baby
Baby my darling, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
I feel your hunger
It's a hunger

[Repeat: x4]
Take me home tonight
I don't want to let you go till you see the light
Take me home tonight
Listen honey
Just like Ronnie sang
Be my little baby

    General CommentRemember the oldies song "Be My Baby" by the Ronette's? It was written and produced by Phil Spector. To refresh your memory, the chorus goes:

    "So come on and please
    (Be my be my baby) Be my little baby
    (I want it only say) Say you'll be my darling
    (Be my be my baby) Be my baby now
    (I want it only say) Ooh, ohh, ohh, oh "

    Anyway...

    Ronnie Bennett was the lead singer of the Ronettes. And she is the woman singing in this Eddie Money song. When he says "Just like Ronnie sang..." he's referring to the classic Ronette's tune. And then Ronnie Bennet of the Ronette's pipes in and does her bit.
    FYI, her name is really Veronica but she changed it when she formed the Ronettes.

    General CommentI can't believe Eddie Money hasn't been added until today! Take Me Home Tonight is one of the greatest 80's songs ever! It's just the way the music really pumps you up, and gets you goin. I love Eddie Money! lol
