From the Rolling Stones – All the Songs, The Story Behind Every Track book:
I don’t want to read a book, I don’t want to watch TV […] And though my feet got blisters, I want to dance with your sister… It’s clear that there’s no hidden message in “Don’t Wanna Go Home”: It’s simply a call to party and go wild when the music is right. As the chorus says: We don’t want to go home / Never want to be alone. We are light-years away from the fullfrontal attack on the Bush administration of “Sweet Neo Con”
Jagger seems to be saying that loneliness is the worst of all evils in our modern world. “Don’t Wanna Go Home” is one in the line of great rock ’n’ roll pieces by the Rolling Stones, fronted by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards as joint masters of ceremony. The song was not, in the end, selected for the album A Bigger Bang. It came to the attention of the public, however, thanks to its availability on the internet after the album was released. There are three versions (differing only in length). It can also be heard on the DVD A Bigger Bang.
