"Joanna" as written by Michael Coles, Robert Coles and Mark Charles....
Change my socks,
Like I change the letters,
Girls with three syllable names,
Are often so easy to shame,
Turn my keys in the lock,
Preferring to leave her in shock,
So I don't have to explain,

Joanna Joanna Joanna Joanna,
Joanna Joanna Joanna Joanna,
It's the morning, the morning and it still doesn't feel right,
Joanna Joanna Joanna Joanna
It's the morning, the morning and it still doesn't feel right,
Joanna, Joanna take me home,
Joanna, Joanna take me home,

Her waking bones,
Bring a new dilemma,
I'm standing with shoelaces tied,
And all my intentions implied,
My cheeks are reddening quick,
So she brings her fingers to lips,
So I don't have to explain,

Joanna, Joanna,
Joanna Joanna Joanna Joanna,
It's the morning, the morning and it still doesn't feel right,
Joanna Joanna Joanna Joanna
It's the morning, the morning and it still doesn't feel right,
Joanna, Joanna take me home,
Joanna, Joanna take me home,

Strangle me with your words,
Twist and turn like a chinese burn,
Cover me with your lines,
A thousand promises,
I only ever wanted one,

Joanna,
Joanna take me home,
Joanna,
Joanna take me home,
Joanna,
Joanna take me home,
Joanna,
Joanna take me home,

    My InterpretationWhat I love about this song is how he says "Joanna".
    When he is singing;
    "Joanna, Joanna take me home." it

    It's almost as if he is trying to sound like he could be saying "Do you wanna", implying that at the same time as sort of demanding her take him home, he also asks her if she wants to. He might have intended on doing this because he is confused and doesn't really know whether he she should or whether he should go back with her.
    The only reason I got that is because of the part where he states;
    "It's the morning, the morning and it still doesn't feel right"

    So as to say when asking her the night before, it didn't feel right just like it doesn't in the morning, hence his way of pronouncing it to sound as if he is confused.
    That's my 2 cents anyway...
