"Stay With Me" as written by Alejandro M. Linares, Randy Strohmeyer, Alexander Pappas, Nathan Barcalow and Derek Doherty....
In the morning
Don't say you love me
'Cause I'll only kick you out of the door

I know your name is Rita
'Cause your perfume smelling sweeter
Since when I saw you down on the floor, guitar

You won't need to much persuading
I don't mean to sound degrading
But with a face like that
You got nothing to laugh about

Red lips hair and fingernails
I hear your a mean old Jezebel
Let's go up stairs and read my tarot cards, c'mon

Stay with me
Stay with me
For tonight you better stay with me, oh yeah

Stay with me
Stay with me
For tonight you better stay with me, oh rock on

So in the morning
Please don't say you love me
'Cause you know I'll only kick you out the door

Yea I'll pay your cab fare home
You can even use my best cologne
Just don't be here in the morning when I wake up, c'mon honey

Stay with me
Stay with me
'Cause tonight you gonna stay with me
Sit down, get up, get down

Stay with me
Stay with me
'Cause tonight your going stay with me
Hey, what's your name again
Oh no, get down, whoo, hey, oh no, woo, get yourself home, slow down babe

    My OpinionI LOVE LOVE LOVE these lyrics!!! They are hilarious!! Most of us have been in this situation where the next morning...You're going wtf did I do??!!This dude needs to kick rocks! hahahaha!! The fact that these men had the comical balls to write a song about it is awesome=D If this is the way SO many people actually feel after a much needed one night stand, Why would anyone be offended by such a brilliant display of reality!? I think it's great and more people should be so honest! Music to me is about expressing thoughts or life experiences through lyrics, so that fans can relate and alter their mood through the wonderful flood gates of music. Life without music would surely suck! Music with no truth behind it is not as "soul grabbing" But then opinions are like Aholes & everyone's got one. Just enjoy the good things in life!!! I have truly enjoyed these lyrics, they made me laugh out loud.

    General CommentNo comments on this song? It must have been miscatagorized under Rod Stewart's solo career, cause this is a CLASSIC song. Not too much deep meaning here. It's a song about being an unrepentant cocky asshole who just wants a one night stand with a girl in the crowd of his show, and for her to not linger the next morning. Too bad Rod Stewart usually gets credit for this song, cause the badass instrumentation is what makes this song a classic.

    General Commentam i the only one who hears the exact phrase and notes "don't say you love me" in natalie imbruglia's "wishing i was there"? did she sample that from these guys?

    My OpinionThe tune and instrumentation rock on this song, but the lyrics are cruel and hateful. The men who wrote this song obviously hate women. I've woken up a few times next to someone I didn't necessarily want to have a long term relationship with, but I didn't feel the need to degrade or abuse the person.
    BTW, I've seen Faces faces, and they definitely "got nothing to laugh about" either.
