CHORUS: Could have been the whiskey, might have been the gin. Could have been three or four six-packs, I dont know, but look at the mess Im in, My head is like a football, I think Im gonna die, Tell me, me oh me oh my, Wasnt that a party? Someone took a grapefruit and wore it like a hat, I saw someone under my kitchen table, talking to my old tom cat, They were talking about hockey and the cat was talkin back, Along about then everything went black, But wasnt that a party?

Im sure its just my memory playin tricks on me, But I think I saw my buddy cuttin down my neighbours tree, Old Billy Joe and Tommy, well they went a little far, They were sitting in my backyard blowing on the siren in somebodys police car. So you see, your honour, It was all in fun, That little bitty track meet down on main street, Was just to see if the cops could run, Well, they run us in to see you, In an alcoholic haze, I can sure use those thirty days to recover from the party.
