Everybody seemed to have somebody better to talk to
Everybody seemed to have something better to do
And I was trying to look so mean and dangerous and ended up stepping on her toe
And one minute she was a perfect stranger and the next thing she said was
I thought you ought to know

I don't wanna go home
Don't get any ideas
Things are going fine, then they all disappeared
You don't have to make me any promises
I can leave anytime I know
Even though I don't wanna go home
Don't get any ideas
Things are going fine, then they all disappeared
You don't have to make me any promises
I can leave anytime I know

As I was drinking she was making her selection over in the corner
Still thinking about the dancing perfection out on the floor
I'd like to shake the hand of the man who started "slow dancing" time
And curse the crazy fool who dreamed up "closing time"

Even though I don't wanna go home
Don't get any ideas
Things are going fine, then they all disappeared
You don't have to make me any promises
I can leave anytime I know
Even though I don't wanna go home
Don't get any ideas
Things are going fine, then they all disappeared
You don't have to make me any promises
I can leave anytime I know
Even though I don't wanna go home
