He Could Take You Home Tonight

(parody of "Let Me Take You Home Tonight" by Boston)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: I'm working towards making a parody of every song on Boston's first album. This one is a pretty straightforward call to holy living, which is the exact opposite of what the original lyrics were saying.


Now I don't like this, I want to find the sky,
But I get these feelings to brag and cheat and lie.
Now don't ever doubt Him, His coming could be nigh.
If you can see the way to be, go on before we fly.

Chorus:
He could take you home tonight, so you should do what's right.
He could take you home tonight, and so we live in light.

You must comprehend this, we've waited for so long,
Though we know it's all true, we're tempted to do wrong.
Get your act together, He came to make you free.
Be living so if He comes tonight, ashamed we'll never be.

chorus
I don't want no lame excuses, if life is awry. I just want to get truth in all my life.

solo (verse)
chorus

I don't want no lame excuses, if life is awry. I just want to get truth in all my life.

Now don't ever doubt Him, His coming could be nigh.
If you get these feelings to brag and cheat and lie,
Get your act together, He came to make you free.
Be living so if He comes tonight, ashamed we'll never be.

chorus

You know He really might. He'll clothe us all in white.
Pretty soon we're gonna soar with Him in flight

He could take you home tonight (The Savior, He could take you home)
He could take you home tonight (don't you know the day's unknown)
He could take you home tonight (repeat & fade)
