Songtekst

Came up to you one night, noticed the look in your eye
I saw you was on your own, and it was alright, yeh it was alright.
They said I could call you Cindy, ha! oh I couldn't make out why,
standing here on your own, an' it was alright, yeh it was alright.

[chorus]:
So won't you take me back home, a take me back home,
if we can find plenty to do, a that will be alright yeh
it will be alright

Coz I luv you
I want you

And you and your bottle of brandy, both of you smell the same,
you're still on your feet, still standing, so it was alright,
yeh it was alright.
A superman comes to meet you, he looks twice the size of me,
I didn't stay round to say goodnight, so it was alright,
yeh it was alright.

[chorus]

So won't you take me back home baby, ah won't you take me back home yeh
I said a take me, take me, take me, take me back home,
take me take me take me, take me back home

I love you
I want you

A what you gonna do when you take me back home
A what you gonna do when you take me back home
A what you what you what you what you what you gonna do
A what you what you what you what you what you gonna do
Alright yeh
it will be alright now
I said a take me, take me, take me, take me back home,
take me take me take me, take me back home

Songinformatie

Begin 1970 begon Slade blues te spelen in een stijl die tegen hardrock aan zat. Jimmy Lea vond dat de band beter in kon haken op de glamrage die door T-Rex op gang was gekomen. Noddy en Dave vonden dat hun arbeidersklasse- en bluesachtergrond erin verweven moest worden. Samen met producer Chas Chandler vond Slade in 1971 een nieuwe sound die tot in 1974 gehandhaafd bleef: harde, makkelijk in het gehoor liggende muziek met alledaagse in streekaccent gezongen teksten, waarvan de titel bijna fonetisch geschreven werd. Een rij van tien top 10-hits volgde in Engeland, ook in Europa scorend, maar de Verenigde Staten raakten niet overtuigd, ook al werd Merry Xmas Everybody in New York opgenomen.
