"I Want to Take You Home Tonight" is a track from Alone II. The song was premiered ahead of the album's release, with Rivers playing the song for a limited audience during the takeover of Y-ROCK on wXPN 88.5 radio station.

Overview

"I Want to Take You Home Tonight" was written on New Years Eve in a hotel room while Rivers Cuomo was in New York City. Having left the party in the streets, Cuomo concluded that fans enjoyed songs that could be sung loudly, with enthusiasm. He wrote in his journal that one thousand " Keep Fishin's" would never equal a "Say It Ain't So" because it lacked said enthusiasm vocally. Cuomo then returned to his hotel room and worked out the song.

Lyrics

I want to take you home tonight
And lay you down beside the fire
I've never seen your face before
I probably won't see you no more

I hope I find another girl
That thinks that I am lovely too
But they don't make those kind of girls
And so I cry from me to you

Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

This is another New Year's Eve
And I am happy with myself
I like to disco on the floor
I probably won't see you no more

If what I take from this ordeal
Is to sit down with you and me
I'd tell you that I love you so
I probably won't see you no more

Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

Don't go, I want you to stay
I need you to stay and hold me
Don't go, I want you to stay
Need you to stay and hold me

I want to take you home tonight
And lay you down beside the fire
I've never seen your face before
I probably won't see you no more

I want to take you home tonight
I want to take you home tonight
I've never seen your face before
I probably won't see you no more

Ooh ooh ooh
