1, 2, 3

Straight off the plane to a new hotel
Just touched down, you could never tell
A big house party with a crowded kitchen
People talk shh but we don't listen

Tell me that I'm wrong but I do what I please
Way too many people in the Addison Lee
Now I'm at the age when I know what I need, oh, whoa

Midnight memories,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, baby you and me
Stumbling in the street
Singing, singing, singing, singing
Midnight memories,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, anywhere we go never say no
Just do it, do it, do it, do it

5 foot something with the skinny jeans
Don't look back, baby follow me
I don't know where I'm going but I'm finding my way
Same old shh but a different day

Tell me that I'm wrong but I do what I please
Way too many people in the Addison Lee
Now I'm at the age when I know what I need, oh, whoa

Midnight memories,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, baby you and me
Stumbling in the street
Singing, singing, singing, singing
Midnight memories,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, anywhere we go never say no
Just do it, do it, do it, do it

You and me and all our friends
I don't care how much we spend
Baby, this is what the night is for,
I know nothing's making sense
For tonight let's just pretend
I don't wanna stop so give me more

Midnight memories,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, baby you and me
Stumbling in the street
Singing, singing, singing, singing
Midnight memories,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, anywhere we go never say no
Just do it, do it, do it, do it

    My InterpretationOne Direction even curse though it’s censored to a ‘shh.’ This happy number make me dance around and is hence one of my favorite tracks of the album. The chorus is even somewhat reminiscent of Def Leppard’s Pour Some Sugar on Me. goo.gl/…

    General CommentI know, repetitive, but it is about partying (not necessarily with drugs, but probably with alcohol), getting a little crazy, and hooking up. I mean it is stated "Now I'm at the age that I know what I need," that they know what fun is to them, and "Midnight Memories" is clearly having fun and also sex. The "People talk sss but we don't listen" is essentially people being critical of them, but just letting it roll off their backs so they could have so much fun.
