Lyrics: Make Your Own Party [Marcy/Zina]

OK, Folks, you know the drill. Allright everyone, let’s gather in front of our large, 13″, Black and White TV set, and watch as a tall, lanky man in a khaki uniform strides out, introduces himself as Sheriff John, pulls out his accordion, and sings the following song for [assignment: name]:

When life gets you down, it can hurt you so
The sun is shining outside, but inside you’re ten below
Don’t you worry your head
Don’’t you shed no tear
Oh, just think to yourself,
Who says birthdays have to happen
Only once a year
Oh,

Sometimes you’ve got to make your own party
Sometimes you’ve got to bake your own cake
Sometimes you’ve got to light your own candle
Make a few wishes for your own sake
Sometimes it seems that dreams might desert you
When things aren’t going quite like you planned
Don’t pack it in, just make your own party
If there’s no music, be your own band

When life gets you down, you feel your friends are few
The sun is shining outside, but inside the storm clouds brew
Don’t you worry your head, baby don’t you cry
Oh, go to the closet, take out the tinsel
And watch the clouds roll by
Oh,

Sometimes you’ve got to blow your own trumpet
Sometimes you’ve got to blaze your own trail
Pour your own tea and serve your own crumpet
Who needs a donkey, pin your own tail
Sometimes you’ve got to break that piñata
Sometimes you’ve got to bang your own gong
Sometimes you’ve got to write your own music
Sometimes you’ve got to sing your own song

Do you want to come to my party
Do you want to come to my party
What a lovely night for a party
Yeah yeah yeah
Oh

Come along I’ll bring the confetti
Salsa, schnapps and sauce for spaghetti
Put the music on and we’re ready
Whatcha think?
Should we make the champagne white or pink

When we start to drink at our party
Sometimes you’ve got to pop your own cork
Sometimes you’ve got to buy your own bubbly
Toast to new friends new love and New York
Sometimes it seems that dreams may escape but
What’s round the corner you never know
Don’t pack it in just make your own party
Don’t pack it in just make your own party
Don’t pack it in just make your own party
If there’s no script, then write your own show.

[Marcy and Zina]
