when i got into the party
it was already late
everyone was drinking
they were dancing to new wave
so i got onto a table
so you could all hear me say
"this doesn't feel like new wave"

i was feeling short of sober
on account of that drink
and i stumbled into her arms
and i felt like i was dreaming
and i stared into her fake eyes
until i almost fell asleep
she said "i'm not who you think"

we will party on friday
saturday is my day
and on sunday
we'll drink the night away
we will party on friday
saturday is my day
and on sunday
we're gonna drink the night away

well late turned into early
but it didn't change my mood
my head was still spinning
and i think hers was too
i didn't feel much like talking
but that's all i seemed to do
i didn't feel much like kissing
but that didn't stop you

no it didn't, did it
no it didn't, did it
no it didn't, did it
'cause we were kissing

we will party on friday
saturday is my day
and on sunday
we'll drink the night away
we will party on friday
saturday is my day
and on sunday
we're gonna drink the night away

we will party on friday baby
saturday is my day maybe
on sunday
we'll drink the night away
we will party on friday baby
saturday is my day maybe
on sunday
we're gonna drink the fucking night away

    General CommentThe second verse is great, and the overall song is ok but i think the chorus gets a bit tedious as it keeps repeating itself.

    General CommentDoes anyone else hear this? The version I'm listening to right now is very different to the one posted here


    When I got into the party
    It was already late
    Everyone was drinking
    they were dancing to new wave
    so I got onto a table
    so you could all hear me say
    "this doesn't feel like new wave"

    i was feeling short of sober
    on account of that drink
    and i stumbled into her arms
    and i felt like i was dreaming
    and I stared into her fake eyes
    until I almost fell asleep
    she said "I'm not who you think"

    We're gonna rock this party 'till the end of the night
    we're gonna party it up till the last light
    And drink the night away. drink the night away

    We're gonna rock this party 'till the end of the night
    we're gonna party it up till the last light
    And drink the night away. drink the night away

    and the late turned into early
    but it didn't change my mood
    my head was still spinning
    and I think hers was too
    I didn't feel much like talking
    but that's all i seemed to do
    I didn't feel much like kissing
    but that didn't stop you

    no it didn't, did it
    no it didn't, did it
    no it didn't, did it
    'cause we were kissing


    We're gonna rock this party 'till the end of the night
    we're gonna party it up till the last light
    And drink the night away, drink the night away
    We're gonna rock this party 'till the end of the night
    we're gonna party it up till the last light
    And drink the night away, and we'll drink the night away

    I think I may have drunk too much tonight
    Just keep running your mouth boy you're gonna find
    That I really drank too much tonight
    I am a lover but I'll still fight
    I think I may have drunk too much tonight
    Just keep running your mouth boy you're gonna find
    That I really drank too much tonight
    I am a lover but I know how to fight

    We're gonna rock this party 'till the end of the night
    we're gonna party it up till the last light
    And drink the night away, and we'll drink the night away
    We're gonna rock this party 'till the end of the night
    we're gonna party it up till the last light
    And drink the night away, and we'll drink the night away

    I think I may have drunk too much tonight
    Just keep running your mouth boy you're gonna find
    That I really drank too much tonight
    I am a lover but I'll still fight
    I think I really drank too much tonight
    Just keep running your mouth boy you're gonna find
    That I really drank too much tonight
    I am a lover but I know how to fight
