About Don't Wanna Go Home

"Don't Wanna Go Home" is a song by American recording artist Jason Derulo, released as the lead single from his second studio album, Future History, on May 23, 2011. The song was written by Derulo, Chaz Mishan, David Delazyn, William Attaway, Irving Burgie, Allen George and Fred McFarlane. It was produced by The Fliptones. The song is an up-tempo electropop and dance-pop song that samples Robin S.' 1993 single "Show Me Love" and incorporates an interpolation of Harry Belafonte's 1956 single, "Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)". "Don't Wanna Go Home" received mixed reviews; some music critics praised its production and lyrics, while others claimed it lacked originality. In the United States, "Don't Wanna Go Home" peaked at number fourteen on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and at number four on the Hot Dance Club Songs chart. It also attained top 20 positions across Europe and in Australia and New Zealand. In the United Kingdom, "Don't Wanna Go Home" debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart, becoming Derulo's second consecutive number-one single in Britain following "In My Head" (2010). The accompanying music video was directed by Rich Lee, and features Derulo in various dance sequences and a cameo appearance by Melody Thornton.

Check that out, what they playin'
That's my song, that's my song
Where my drinks?
I've been waiting much too long, much too long
And this girl in my lap, passing out, she's a blonde
The last thing on my mind is goin' home

From the window (from the window)
To the wall (to the wall)
This club is jumpin' (this club is jumpin')
'Til tomorrow ('Til tomorrow)
Is it daylight? (Is it daylight?)
Or is it night time? (Is it night time)
One o'clock, two o'clock, three o'clock, four
We gon' tear the club up up, up, up, up

Dayo, me say dayo
Daylight come and we don't wanna go home
Yeah so, we losin' control
Turn the lights low 'cause we about to get blown
Let the club shut down (We won't go, oh, oh, oh)
Burn it down (To the floor, oh, oh, oh)
Dayo, me say dayo
Daylight come and we don't wanna go home

We drink the whole bottle but it ain't over, over
Everybody jumping on the sofa, sofa
Standing on the chairs
Standing on the bar
No matter day or night, I'm shining
Bitch, I'm a star

From the window (from the window)
To the wall (to the wall)
This club is jumpin' (this club is jumpin')
Til tomorrow ('Til tomorrow)
Is it daylight? (Is it daylight?)
Or is it night time? (Is it night time)
One o'clock, two o'clock, three o'clock, four
We gon' tear the club up (up, up, up, up)

Dayo, me say dayo
Daylight come and we don't wanna go home
Yeah so, we losin' control
Turn the lights low 'cause we about to get blown
Let the club shut down (We won't go, oh, oh, oh)
Burn it down (To the floor, oh, oh, oh)
I say Dayo, me say dayo
Daylight come and we don't wanna go home

I just met this sexy Haitian girl moving like a dancer
Told her and her girlfriends, let's sleep in my cabana
Ask me where the party's at, baby I'm the answer
Have another drink with me, shorty where your manners?
Take another shot, another, shot, shot, shot, shot
I can make it hot, make it hot, we go rock until the

Dayo, me say dayo
Daylight come and we don't wanna go home
Yeah so, we losin' control
Turn the lights low 'cause we about to get blown
Let the club shut down (We won't go, oh, oh, oh)
Burn it down, (To the floor, oh, oh, oh)
Dayo, me say dayo
Daylight come and we don't wanna go home
