Closing time - Open all the doors and let you out into the world
Closing time - turn the lights up over every boy and every girl.
Closing time - one last call for alcohol, so finish your whiskey or beer.
Closing time - you don't have to go home but you can't stay here.

I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
Take me home...

Closing time - time for you to go out to the places you will be from.
Closing time - this room won't be open 'til your brothers or you sisters come.
So gather up your jackets, and move it to the exits - I hope you have found a friend.
Closing time - every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end, yeah

I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
Take me home...

[MUSICAL BREAK]

Closing time - time for you to go out to the places you will be from...

I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
Take me home...

I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
Take me home...

Closing time - every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end...

    I always listen to this song when i get kicked out of the local bars and pubs for either drinking too much or staying too long in my sorrow... I feel it is a very uplifting and freeing song that everyone should listen to when they are in trouble or are alone.
