"Take You There" as written by and Jonathan/anderson Rotem....
We can go to the tropics
Sip pina coladas
Shorty I could take you there
Or we can go to the slums
Where killers get hung
Shorty I could take you there
You know I could take ya (I could take ya)
I could take ya (I could take ya)
Shorty I could take you there
You know I could take ya (I could take ya)
I could take ya (I could take ya)
Shorty I could take you there

Baby girl I know it's rough but come with me
We can take a trip to the hood
It's no problem girl it's my city
I could take you there

Little kid with guns only fifteen
Roam in the streets up to no good
When gun shots just watch us, run quickly
I could show you where

As long you're with me
Baby you'll be alright
I'm known in the ghetto
Girl just stay by my side
Or we can leave the slums go to paradise
Baby it's up to you
It's whatever you like

We can go to the tropics
Sip pina coladas
Shorty I could take you there
Or we can go to the slums
Where killers get hung
Shorty I could take you there
You know I could take ya (I could take ya)
I could take ya (I could take ya)
Shorty I could take you there
You know I could take ya (I could take ya)
I could take ya (I could take ya)
Shorty I could take you there

Shorty come with me it's no worry

I know the bad men them where they ah stay
Police fly pursuit in a hurry
This is no gun play
Don't be scared in the West Indies
It's Jamaica, that's where I'm from
Might see something you're not used to
Welcome to the slums

As long you're with me
Baby you'll be alright
I'm known in the ghetto
Girl just stay by my side
Or we can leave the slums go to paradise
Baby it's up to you
It's whatever you like

We can go to the tropics
Sip pina coladas
Shorty I could take you there
Or we can go to the slums
Where killers get hung
Shorty I could take you there
You know I could take ya (I could take ya)
I could take ya (I could take ya)
Shorty I could take you there
You know I could take ya (I could take ya)
I could take ya (I could take ya)
Shorty I could take you there

Or we (or we)
Can go (can go)
To a place (to a place)
I know you gonna like (oh oh oh)
The beach (the beach)
The breeze (the breeze)
West Indies, I call it paradise

We can go to the tropics
Sip pina coladas
Shorty I could take you there
Or we can go to the slums
Where killers get hung
Shorty I could take you there
You know I could take ya (I could take ya)
I could take ya (I could take ya)
Shorty I could take you there
You know I could take ya (I could take ya)
I could take ya (I could take ya)
Shorty I could take you there

    General CommentI'm no rocket scientist, but I am pretty sure if you have the choice of going to a ghetto neighborhood in a completely foreign place, or going to the beach where it's safe and heavily populated with rich people and clean streets without little kids roaming around with rifles.....the choice seems so clear but maybe it's just me.

    General Commentthis song is pretty self explanatory. Basically, the singer is saying that he isn't afraid of taking the girl in any part of the city, either the ghetto or the white rich part of town. He comes from the ghetto, so people know him, and he also has money and can fit in the rich crowd

    General CommentI think I have a good idea as to what this song is about.

    I've went to the ghetto before, and I went with a close friend of mine, he told me as long as I stayed close to him, no one would mess with me while we were in his territory, and once we got out of his territory, I could let my guard down and relax.

    I think this song means the same.

    The singer is basically saying...

    "We can go to my territory, but if you want to do this then stay by my side and I'll protect you and keep you safe, or we can go some where peaceful, I'll do anything you want."

    He's giving her a decision, if she wants to see where he comes from then he will take her to his territory and use his experience to keep her safe, but if she wants to go somewhere else, he'll take her because it's what she wants to do.
