Jason Derulo – Don’t Wanna Go Home

Dont Wanna Go Home” is the lead first single from American singer-songwriter, actor and dancer Jason Derulo‘s upcoming second studio album, Future History.

The beat is taken from the 90’s dance classic “Show Me Love” by Robin S., while some of the lyrics sample the infamous “Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)” by Harry Belafonte. “We say day-o, daylight come and we don’t wanna go home,” Jason sings on the chorus.

You may also remember the song around the dinner table with them being taken over by spirits while singing the “Day-O (Banana Boat Song) from the 80s classic Beetlejuice.

The track was produced by The Fliptones and it premiered in early May 2011.

Lyrics for Jason Derulo – Don’t Wanna Go Home

[Jason Derulo – Verse 1:]
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 going home

From the window, to the wall
This club is jumping, til tomorrow
Is it daylight or is it night time
1 o’clock 2 o’clock 3 o’clock 4

We gon’ tear the club up.. (Up, up, up, up)

[Chorus:]
Dayo! – me say Dayo
Daylight come and we don’t wanna go home
Yeah so – we losing 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

[Jason Derulo – Verse 2:]
We drink the whole bottle but it ain’t over over
Errbody jumping on the sofa sofa
Standing on the chairs
Standing on the bars
No matter day or night I’m shining
Bitch I’m a star

From the window, to the wall
This club is jumping, til tomorrow
Is it daylight or is it night time
1 o’clock 2 o’clock 3 o’clock 4

We gon’ tear the club up til..

[Chorus:]
Dayo! – me say Dayo
Daylight come and we don’t wanna go home
Yeah so we losing 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 flo oh oh oh
Dayo! – me say Dayo
Daylight come and we don’t wanna go home

[Bridge:]
I just met this sexy Haitian girl moving like a dancer
Told her and her girlfriend that’s speaking my cobana
Ask me where the party at, baby I’m the answer
Have another drink with me shawty where your manners
Take another shot, ‘nother shot shot shot shot
I can make it hot make it hot

We gon..

[Chorus:]
Dayo! – me say Dayo
Daylight come and we don’t wanna go home
Yeah so we losing 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 flo oh oh oh
Dayo! – me say Dayo
Daylight come and we don’t wanna go home
