Lyrics

(Source: I'm Not Bossy, I'm the Boss)

I want you to take me out.
I want you to bring me downtown.
I want you to, oh, show me around.
I want you to take me out.
I want you to bring me downtown.
I want you to, oh, yeah.
I’m only gonna wear my long jacket,
Sit in the corner with a cigarette,
Make you see if I’m, oh, yeah.
And if your friends wanna look,
Well, that’s ok in my book.
It really, oh, gets me off my hook.
I know I may look a little square.
I know I look like a wooden chair,
But I got, oh, yeah.
And in the words of James Brown,
I’m sorry, but I came to get down.
I’m sorry but I, oh, yeah.
I told you to take me out.
I told you to bring me downtown.
I told you to, oh, show me around.
