Lyrics

I went to a garden party to Reminisce with my old friends A chance to share old memories And play our songs again When I got to the garden party They all knew my name No one recognized me I didn`t look the same (CHORUS) But it`s all right now I learned my lesson well You see, you can`t please everyone So you got to please yourself People came from miles around Everyone was there Yoko brought her walrus There was magic in the air And over in the corner Much to my surprise Mr. Hughes hid in Dylan`s shoes Wearing his disguise (CHORUS) La da da da..... Played them all the old songs Thought that`s why they came No one heard the music We didn`t look the same I said hello to Mary Lou She belongs to me When I sang a song about a Honky-tonk, it was time to leave (CHORUS) La da da da.....

Someone opened up a closet door And out stepped Johnny B. Goode Playing guitar like a-ringing a bell And looking like he should If you gotta play at garden parties I wish you a lotta luck But if memories were all I sang I rather drive a truck (CHORUS) La da da da..... And it`s all right now Learned my lesson well You see, you can`t please everyone So you got to please yourself
