  • Well, all the parties on the streets are talking, store front mannequins sleeping in lights
    We used to smoke while we were jaywalking like it was your birthday every other Saturday night
    Knew The bands so we never payed our cover
    Wrote our names on the bathroom tiles
    We never dressed to impress all the others
    They would let us in on a laid back kind of style
    But boy you know it's been a while

    I don't know why you don't take me downtown like you got anywhere better to be
    Talk it up and give me the go round round like a good time tease
    I'm only counting on your cancellation
    When I should be counting on you at my door
    Did you forget about how we went around
    I don't know why you don't take me downtown anymore
    Oh anymore

    I got some platforms sitting in the corner
    They wanna stroll on a city sidewalk
    I got a dress that 'll show a little uh uh
    But you ain't getting uh oh if you don't come pick me up (damn)
    Show me off (wow), you might be tired but I'm not

    And I don't know why you don't take me down town like you got anywhere better to be
    Talk it up and give me the go round round like a good time tease
    I'm only counting on your cancellation
    When I should be counting on you at my door
    Did you forget about how we went around
    I don't know why you don't take me downtown anymore

    I don't know why you don't take me down town like you got anywhere better to be
    Talk it up and give me the go round round like a good time tease
    I'm only counting on your cancellation
    When I should be counting on you at my door
    Did you forget about how we went around
    I don't know why you don't take me downtown anymore
    Oh anymore
    Yeah don't know why you don't take me downtown
    I don't know why you don't take me downtown anymore
    I just don't get it Writer/s: LUKE LAIRD, NATALIE HEMBY, SHANE MCANALLY
