Written by: John Mellencamp and Larry Crane

Office girls, they pass me by.
They don't know my name.
Put me on the danger list,
Just too wild to tame.

Take the drinks off of the table.
Throw my guitar out the door.
Set my sights on some new sunrise.
Help my feet to the floor.

Chorus
I ain't lookin' for affection.
I guess I need myself a shove.
Give me someone I can look up to.
Show me someone I can love.

Good boys go to heaven,
If they say their prayers.
Me, I don't say anything at all.
I hope the Big Man still cares.

Touch my soul with your religion.
Cut my throat with your spite.
Hurt me with your silence, girl.
Stay with me, stay with me, stay with
Me tonight.

Chorus
I ain't lookin' for affection.
I guess I need myself a shove.
Give me someone I can look up to.
Show me someone I can love.

Don't go starin' at me.
Makes me feel so insecure.
Talk behind my back if you want to.
I don't hear no more.

Take me to my destination.
Put me on the plane.
Fly me up to heaven, dear Lord.
Take me home again.

Chorus
I ain't lookin' for affection.
I guess I need myself a shove.
Give me someone I can look up to.
Show me someone I can love.
