First we'll pick Priscilla up
And then we'll stop for Jane
And Mary Ellen needs a ride
We're going by her place
We're going to a party
Our friends will all be there
I got the directions
It's across the river somewhere
We rang the top floor, bottom buzzer
Top floor, bottom buzzer
Top floor, bottom buzzer
The middle won't work
Ring the one under

Priscilla's in the kitchen, she's mixing drinks
She's mixing one for me, I think
And one for Mary Ellen and one for Jane
Priscilla, she knows how to use a shaker
She doesn't get up as early as a baker, uh huh
There's a muchacha teaching me to mambo
There's my buddy Pete eying a bowl of combos
Ramona and a man do a tango dip
Cheek to cheek, hip to hip, come on

The window's open, it's the heart of the summer
More people coming looking for the number
Mary Ellen sees them, she has a little stutter
She yells:
Top floor, bottom buzzer
Top floor, bottom buzzer
Top floor, bottom buzzer
Top floor, bottom buzzer
The middle won't work
Ring the one under
Come on, woo

It was later, it was after two
We found a bottle of good chartreuse
The lights were green and gold
We played Latin soul
By the time Priscilla put the Al Green on
The bottle was gone
On the top floor, bottom buzzer
Top floor, bottom buzzer
Top floor, bottom buzzer
The middle won't work
Ring the one under
Come on, woo

Top floor, bottom buzzer
Top floor, bottom buzzer
Top floor, bottom buzzer
The middle won't work
Ring the one under
Come on, woo

    General CommentReminds me of a great-gatsby style 1920's party, a few close friends, a bottle of scotch, music, dancing, mutual entertainment.
