PARTY LIGHTS

1981 home demo


See you on the street, yeah, you look so tired
Tell me you got me you so uninspired
Gotta tell me, baby am I right
When I think you're missing the party lights

Yeah, Johnny be, baby, growin' up fast
Kickin' 'em down good, when they're kicking your ass
I'm gonna keep 'em, baby, and am I right
Tell me if you're missing the party lights

Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba

Hey, when you're walkin' baby in the street
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
Lyin' in bed, baby, about to eat
Lyin' in bed, baby, fast asleep
Tell me do you miss the party lights
Baby do you miss, do you miss, do you miss the party lights
When you're lyin' in, your bed at night, tell me do you miss the party lights

Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
