"I Do Not Hook Up" (originally titled as "Hook Up") is a song written by Katy Perry, Greg Wells, and Kara DioGuardi. It is performed by Kelly Clarkson and serves as the second single to her album, All I Ever Wanted. The song was originally written and recorded by Katy Perry in 2006 for her unreleased album, (A) Katy Perry. Perry told MTV News on her connection to Kelly Clarkson, saying:

Kara and I and one of my producers, Greg Wells — when I was writing for this record that took five years and [encompassed] all these songs — we got together in a studio and we wrote a song for my record called 'I Do Not Hook Up,' but it didn't make it on my record," Perry said. "Just because there were so many different songs and there were only 12 slots allotted for the record, so ... it was kind of one of those songs that was just, like, still there. And Kelly Clarkson heard it. I guess she liked it, and she recorded it — and another song too.

—Katy Perry

Perry thanked Clarkson for recording the song adding that she was "excited" about the single release, hoping that Clarkson would perform the song live. "Long Shot," another track from (A) Katy Perry, was also given to Kelly Clarkson.

Lyrics

Katy Perry's version

Oh, sweetheart put the bottle down, you've got too much talent
I see you through those bloodshot eyes
There's a cure, you've found it

Slow motion sparks, you've caught that chill, now don't deny it
But boys will be boys, oh, yes they will
They don't wanna define it

Just give up the game and get into me
If you're looking for thrills then get cold feet

Oh, no I do not hook up, up I go slow
So if you want me I don't come cheap
Keep your thing in your pants and your heart on your sleeve

Oh, no I do not hook up, up I fall deep
'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight to say goodnight

I can't cook, no but I can clean up the mess you left
Lay your head down and feel the beat as I kiss your forehead
This may not last but this is now so love the one you're with

You wanna chase but you're chasin' your tail
A quick fix won't ever get you well

Oh, no I do not hook up, up I go slow
So if you want me I don't come cheap
Keep your thing in your pants and your heart on your sleeve

Oh, no I do not hook up, up I fall deep
'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight to say

'Cause I feel the distance between us
Could be over with the snap of your finger, oh, no

Oh, no I do not hook up, up I go slow
So if you want me I don't come cheap
Keep your thing in your pants and your heart on your sleeve

Oh, no I do not hook up, up I fall deep
'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight to say
'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight to say goodnight

Oh, sweetheart put the bottle down 'cause you don't wanna miss out

Kelly Clarkson's version

Oh, sweetheart put the bottle down, you've got too much talent
I see you through those bloodshot eyes
There's a cure, you've found it

Slow motion sparks, you've caught that chill, now don't deny it
But boys will be boys, oh, yes they will
They don't wanna define it

Just give up the game and get into me
If you're looking for thrills then get cold feet

Oh, no I do not hook up, up I go slow
So if you want me I don't come cheap
Keep your head on my hand and your heart on your sleeve

Oh, no I do not hook up, up I fall deep
'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight to say goodnight

I can't cook, no but I can clean up the mess you left
Lay your head down and feel the beat as I kiss your forehead
This may not last but this is now so love the one you're with

You wanna chase but you're chasin' your tail
A quick fix won't ever get you well

Oh, no I do not hook up, up I go slow
So if you want me I don't come cheap
Keep your head on my hand and your heart on your sleeve

Oh, no I do not hook up, up I fall deep
'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight to say

'Cause I feel the distance between us
Could be over with the snap of your finger, oh, no

Oh, no I do not hook up, up I go slow
So if you want me I don't come cheap
Keep your head on my hand and your heart on your sleeve

Oh, no I do not hook up, up I fall deep
'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight to say
'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight to say goodnight

Oh, sweetheart put the bottle down 'cause you don't wanna miss out
