Back to School Anthem for Music Monday: I Don't Wanna Go Home by Southside Johnny

Labor Day Weekend... the end of summer. It's always been a bittersweet time for me... a new school year and a fresh start, but time to pack up and head home from the beach. Who better than Southside Johnny and his Jersey Shore bar band the Jukes to capture that feeling with his anthem, "I Don't Want To Go Home"??



Sing along with Roxy, Southside and special guest Bruce Springsteen:

Oh, I know that it’s getting late
But I don’t want to go home
I’m in no hurry baby time can wait
‘Cause I don’t want to go home

Listen to the man sing his song
I don’t want to go home
I don’t mind if it takes all night long
‘Cause I don’t want to go home

Listen, baby, I know we had to try
To reach up and touch the sky, baby
Whatever happened to you and I
That I don’t want to go home?

Lord, look at how all the people stare
Said I don’t want to go home
In their minds I know they’ve all been there
I don’t want to go home

I know the words to this song are real
But, oh, I don’t want to go home
I know he’s talking ‘bout the way I feel
And I don’t want to go home

Listen, baby, I know we had to try
To reach up and touch the sky, baby
Whatever happened to you and I
That I don’t want to go home?

I want to hear people laughing and having a good time
I want to know why she told me she had to go
Why did she leave me lonely?

I know that it’s time to go
But I don’t want to go home
You can play play your blues, play ‘em soft and low
‘Cause I don’t want to go home

I know the words to this song are real
But, oh, I don’t want to go home
I know he’s talking ‘bout the way I feel
And I don’t want to go home

I don’t want to go, believe me, darling
I don’t want to go home
Don’t wanna be all alone
I don’t want to go home, baby

Ain’t nobody waitin’ at home
Baby, won’t you please come home
Baby, baby, baby
Baby, baby, baby
Baby, baby, baby
Baby, won’t you please come home?
