"If I Take You Home (Upon...)" as written by Van Hunt, Larry James, Douglas Smith, George Gordon and Curtis Whitehead....
I'm on the highway;
If you're going my way,
Let's take the fast lane to your place... together...
Somethin's come over me:
I stink of teenage heat;
Lay me down before I freeze... forever...

Girls: (If I take you home, will you respect me in the mornin'?)
"Yeah, yeah, oh, yeah..." [said the boys.]
Girls: (If I take you home, will you write my name in a song?)
"Yeah, yeah..." [lied the boys.]

I want you 'cause I need to;
Never felt so sure about a cure upon meeting someone new...

Watch me, baby!
Watch me!

We're going nowhere;
Can't wait to get back there,
So, I can pull your hair... forever...
(I know it feels good...) You know it feels good,
(Just the way pain should...) Just the way pain should;
(The young and dirty laugh through...)
The young and dirty laugh through it... together...

Girls: (If I take you home, will you respect me in the mornin'?)
"Yeah, yeah, oh, yeah..." [said the boys.]
Girls: (If I take you home, will you write my name in a song?)
"Yeah, yeah..." [lied the boys.]

All the fighting and colliding has got my lovin' bent;
(Yeah, yeah...)
Indication of a strained relation has my devotion spent...
(Yeah, yeah...)

I know what it looks like, but the time is right;
Never felt so sure about a cure for the quiet life...

I want you 'cause I need to;
Never felt so sure about a cure upon meeting someone new...

Hey there, lady... Won't you take me home?
I'll write yo' name in a song...
Hey there, lady... Won't you take me home?
I'll write yo' name in a song...
Hey there, lady... Won't you take me home?
I'll write yo' name in a song...
Hey there, lady... Won't you take me home?
I'll write yo' name in a song...
Hey there, lady... Won't you take me home?
I'll write yo' name in a song...
Hey there, lady... Won't you take me home?
I'll write yo' name in a song...

    I'm on the highway
    If you're going my way
    Let's take the fast lane to your place...together
    Somethin's come over me
    I stink of teenage heat
    Lay me down before I freeze...forever

    Girls: If I take you home, will you respect me in the mornin'?
    "Yeah, yeah, oh yeah..." said the boys
    Girls: If I take you home, will you write my name in a song?
    "Yeah, yeah, yeah..." lied the boys

    I want you
    'Cause I need to
    Never felt so sure about a cure
    Upon meeting someone new

    We're going nowhere
    And I can't wait to get back there
    So, I can pull your hair...forever
    You know it feels good
    Just the way pain should
    The young and dirty laugh through it...together

    All the fighting and colliding
    Has got my lovin' bent
    Indication of a strained relation
    Has my devotion spent

    I know what it looks like
    But the time is right
    Never felt so sure about a cure
    For the quiet life
