Take me out tonight
where there's music and there's people and they're 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 life
Driving in your car
Oh please don't take 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 is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten ton truck kills the both of us
To die by your side, well the pleasure, the privilege is mine

Take me out tonight
Take me anywhere, I don't care I don't care 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
Oh take me anywhere, I don't care, I don't care, I don't care
Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven't got one
Oh, I haven't got one

And if a double-decker bus crashes into us
To die by your side is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten ton truck kills the both of us
To die by your side, well the pleasure, the privilege is mine

    General CommentFantastic song, one of the rare occasions that a cover is better than the original, and I can't get this thing out of my head.
