  • Hey there city girl
    Glad I ran into you here
    I am one for nightclubs
    But I'll make exceptions for you dear
    This music's too loud
    And gee I just don't like crowds
    I pass you a drink while the creeps
    Circle around you
    Tryin' to figure out
    If I'm just one of them too
    Dancing six hours
    My heart's beating too loud
    Wish I could say it's the DJ
    But it's probably just

    'Cause I want you
    And that's the way it is
    I'm gonna be real straight about it
    Yes I want you
    And that's the way it is
    I gotta stop being ironic
    I want you

    I was talking at you
    You were overdosing quietly
    You pass me your phone
    My finger on the 9-9-9 key
    But you sobered right up
    I bought cranberry vodka
    "It's good for your blatter"
    When you said that I knew

    That I want you
    And that's the way it is
    I'm gonna be real straight about it
    Yes I want you
    And that's the way it is
    I gotta stop being ironic
    I want you

    How about I run you a bath?
    (when we wake up in the morning)
    Will you regret kissing my head?
    (When we wake up in the morning)
    How about I run you a bath?
    (I don't take baths often)
    How about you stay here all week?

    I want you
    And that's the way it is
    I'm gonna be real straight about it
    I want you
    And that's the way it is
    I gotta stop being ironic
    I want you
    And that's the way it is
    I'm gonna be real straight about it
    Yes I want you
    And that's the way it is
    It ain't the alcohol, it's kismet
    I want you Writer/s: Matthew Jonathan Gordon Maltese
