"Wasn't That A Party" as written by and Thomas R / Paxton....
Could've been the whiskey
It might have been the gin
Could have been the three or four six packs, I don't know
But look at the mess I'm in
My head is like a football
I think I'm going to die
Tell me, me oh, me oh my
Wasn't that a party

Someone took a grapefruit
Wore it like a hat
I saw someone under my kitchen table
Talking to my old tom cat
They were talking about hockey
The cat was talking back
Long about then everything went black
Wasn't that a party

I'm sure it's just my memory
Playing tricks on me
But I think I saw my buddy
Cutting down my neighbor's tree


Billy Joe and Tommy
Well they went a little far
They were sitting in the back yard, blowing on a siren
From somebody's police car

So you see, Your Honor
It was all in fun
The 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 sure can use those thirty days
To recover from the party

(repeat chorus x2, fade)

    General CommentThis song is just one of those songs that is simple, both musically and lyrically, but it's catchy and fun. Even hammered you can sing along! A really fun drinking tune
