Lyrics

Take me to your best friend's house, go around this roundabout
Ohh yeah
Take me to your best friend's house
I loved you then and I love you now
Ohh yeah

Don't take me tongue tied
Don't wave no goodbye
Don't...

Oh, take me to your best friend's house, normally, we're making out
Ohh yeah
Oh, take me to your best friend's house
I loved you then and I love you now

Don't take me tongue tied
Don't wave no goodbye
Don't...

One, two, three, four
Don't leave me tongue tied
Let's stay up all night
I'll get real high
Slumber party, pillow fight
My eyes and your eyes
Like Peter Pan up in the sky
My best friend's house tonight
Let's bump the beats till beddy-bye

Don't take me tongue tied
Don't wave no goodbye
Don't take me tongue tied
Don't kiss me goodnight
Don't...

Take me to your best friend's house, go around this roundabout
Ohh yeah
Oh, take me to your best friend's house
I loved you then and I love you now

Don't leave me tongue tied
Don't wave no goodbye
Don't leave me tongue tied
Don't...

Testo

Portami nella casa del tuo migliore amico, gira intorno a questa rotonda
Oh si
Portami a casa del tuo migliore amico
Ti ho amato allora e ti amo ora
Oh si

Non credere che sia rimasto senza parole
Non dirmi addio
Non farlo

Oh, portami nella casa del tuo migliore amico, normalmente ci baciamo
Oh si
Oh, portami nella casa del tuo migliore amico
Ti ho amato allora e ti amo ora

Non credere che sia rimasto senza parole
Non dirmi addio
Non farlo

Uno, due, tre, quattro
Non lasciarmi ammutolito
Restiamo alzati tutta la notte
Mi sballerò di brutto
Sonno party e lotte con i cuscini
I miei occhi e i tuoi occhi
Come Peter Pan su nel cielo
La casa del mio mio migliore amico stanotte
Facciamo pompare le casse fino all'ora della buonanotte

Non credere che sia rimasto senza parole
Non dirmi addio
Non credere che sia rimasto senza parole
Non darmi il bacio della buonanotte
Non farlo

Portami nella casa del tuo migliore amico, gira intorno a questa rotonda
Oh si
Oh, portami nella casa del tuo migliore amico
Ti ho amato allora e ti amo ora

Non lasciarmi ammutolito
Non dirmi addio
Non lasciarmi ammutolito
Non farlo
(x2)
