Week 11 – Can I Take You Out Tonight

This is a boy-meets-girl, boy-likes-girl, boy-asks-girl-out song. I was on the train one day, watching young couples on their way to town, and I thought to myself: “Ah.. young love.” This song tries to capture that exuberance. If the lyrics seem simplistic to you, it’s intentional 😉

Can I Take You Out Tonight
© Music and Lyrics by Marcel Lee Pereira, 13 July 2010

I’ve got your face stuck in my mind, and I’m sure
You’re the girl I’ve been trying to find, the cure
For a heart so insecure

It’s Friday and I need to get outside
Run wild like a spoilt, rich only child
So will you come for a ride

I’m not begging, I’m asking polite

Chorus
Can I take you out
Can I take you out
Tonight

I haven’t got a plan we’ll just play by ear
I know a place where the food’s so good you’ll tear
All your cares will disappear

We could paint the city any colour you like
Wear something that matches your hazel eyes
Oh, that would be so nice

Put on that dress I really like

Chorus
Can I take you out
Can I take you out
Tonight

It’s a first date, and I can’t wait
It’s just one night so what do you say?
Say yes, say yes, say yes

Chorus
Can I take you out
Can I take you out
Tonight
