"Stop the World, I Wanna Get Off with You" as written by and Alex Turner....
Open sesame
(We've places to go)
We've people to see
(Let's put them on hold)
There's all sorts of shapes
That I bet you can make
When you have to escape
Say the word

Now I know getting you alone isn't easy to do
With the exception of you, I dislike everyone in the room
And I don't want to lie, but I don't want to tell you the truth
Get the sense that you're on the move, and you'll probably be leaving soon.
So I'm telling you

Stop the world cause I wanna get off with you
Stop the world cause I wanna get off with you

Eyes the color of
(Water left in wood)
Ice and sugar dust
(Crazy green flashes)
It's a funny thing that I cannot explain
Don't you know the train keeps rolling

Stop the world cause I wanna get off with you
Stop the world cause I wanna get off with you

Well I know that getting you alone isn't easy to do
And I don't wanna lie and I don't wanna tell you the truth
And I know we got places to go, we got people to see
Think we both ought put 'em on hold and I know you agree

Stop the world cause I wanna get off with you
Stop the world cause I wanna get off with you
