Yeah, uh, feels good, don't it?
Listen, uh

Yeah, this was your city
You did it all and more, broke every law except for one, babe
Attraction, are you ready I know you feel it
Pull you nearer 'til you feel it again, oh

I wanna do something right
But we can do something better
Ain't no time like tonight And we ain't trying to save it 'til later Stay out here living the life Nobody cares who we are tomorrow You got that lil' something I like
A little something I've been wanting to borrow Tonight's the night, come on surrender I won't lead your love astray, astray, yeah
Your love's a weapon Give your body some direction That's my aim
Then, we could 
Take back the night Come on, use me up until there's nothing left
Take back the night Dizzy, spinning, sweating, you can't catch your breath Take back the night Ooh, don't know when the sun is rising next
Take back the night So if the feeling's right, then raise your glass and let's

Take back the night, take back the night They gon' try to shut us down, but I'll be damned if we gon' let them
Take back the night, take back the night You know you gon' mess around and find out there ain't no one better Take back the night, oh
Yeah

Rare, there's not too many
No one but you and crowded rooms, we can do anything (yeah) Attraction can drive you crazy The way you move, you go crazy, that's incentive for me

I wanna do something right
But we can do something better
Ain't no time like tonight And we ain't trying to save it 'til later Stay out here living the life Nobody cares who we are tomorrow You got that lil' something I like
A little something I've been wanting to borrow Tonight the night's, come on surrender I won't lead your love astray, astray, yeah
Your love's a weapon Give your body some direction That's my aim
Then, we could 
Take back the night Come on, use me up until there's nothing left
Take back the night Dizzy, spinning, sweating, you can't catch your breath Take back the night Ooh, don't know when the sun is rising next
Take back the night So if the feeling's right, raise your glass and let's

Take back the night, take back the night They gon' try to shut us down, but I'll be damned if we gon' let them
Take back the night, take back the night You know you gon' mess around and find out there ain't no one better Take back the night  Break it down now, Break break it down,
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, doo, doo, doo
Yeah, yeah, oh
And the horns say, alright And the horns say, alright And the horns say, alright And the horns say
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, take it over
Yeah, yeah

Y'all ready to have a good time out there, ladies and gentlemen? JT and the Tennessee Kids
Let your hair down baby

Take back the night Take back the night Take back the night We don't know when the sun is rising next
Take back the night The feeling's right, raise your glass and let's
Take back the night Take back the night But they gon' try to shut us down, I'll be damned if we gon' let them
Take back the night alright
Take back the night You know you gon' mess around and find out there ain't no one better And the horns say, alright And the horns say,
And the horns say, feels good to me
And the horns say, alright Ooh it's taking over
