Charted: 13
  • Heard you're new in town, want someone to show you 'round
    Well, no one knows this place just quite like me
    Well, I don't hang with the crowd where I go we're dressing down
    I'll take you where the music plays for free

    So don't rely on people you meet
    'Cause no one is safe in these streets

    I'm gonna take you out tonight
    I'm gonna make you feel alright
    I don't have a lot of money but we'll be fine
    No I don't have a penny but I'll show you a good time

    I'm gonna take you out tonight
    I'm gonna make you feel alright
    I don't have a lot of money but we'll be fine
    No I don't have a penny but I'll show you a real good time

    So what do you think so far? Is it all you're hoping for?
    Does it live up to your every dream?
    Or do we disappoint? Well you made the choice
    When you wake up can you hear the scream?

    So don't rely on people you meet
    'Cause no one is safe in these streets

    I'm gonna take you out tonight
    I'm gonna make you feel alright
    I don't have a lot of money but we'll be fine
    No I don't have a penny but I'll show you a good time

    I'm gonna take you out tonight
    I'm gonna make you feel alright
    I don't have a lot of money but we'll be fine
    No I don't have a penny but I'll show you a real good time

    'Cause I know how it feels to be alone
    When strangers only make you feel the cold
    You never ever felt so far from home
    You never felt so far from home

    I'm gonna take you out tonight
    I'm gonna make you feel alright
    I don't have a lot of money but we'll be fine
    No I don't have a penny but I'll show you a good time

    I'm gonna take you out tonight
    I'm gonna make you feel alright
    I don't have a lot of money but we'll be fine
    No I don't have a penny but I'll show you a real good time

    I'm gonna take you out tonight
    I'm gonna make you feel alright
    I don't have a lot of money but we'll be fine
    No I don't have a penny but I'll show you a good time

    I'm gonna take you out tonight
    I'm gonna make you feel alright
    I don't have a lot of money but we'll be fine
    No I don't have a penny but I'll show you a real good time Writer/s: VICTORIA HESKETH, GREG KURSTIN, GREGORY KURSTIN
