"Having a Party" as written by Bobby Massey, H. B. Barnum and Lester Mackenzie....
It's Saturday night, and my parents are out of town.
Told all of my friends at school that tonight we're gonna boogie down!
Everybody's been spreadin' the word all over the neighborhood, so come on over
And bring a friend this party has got to be good!

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
We're havin' a party (everybody)
Gonna dance and play (what'd I say, now)
We're havin' a party (hey, yeah)
While the folks are away!

Hey, looks like everybody showed up, now, it seems like a hundred and one!
All the prettiest girls in the neighborhood, we showed 'em we got to have fun!

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
We're havin' a party (hey, yeah)
Gonna dance and play (come on over)
We're havin' a party (alright)
While the folks are away!

Well, we got the latest records, the music's up as loud as it can go!
Everybody out of their chair now, it's time to hit the floor!

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
We're havin' a party (hey, hey, yeah)
Gonna dance and play (everybody)
We're havin' a party (whoo, yeah)
While the folks are away!

Take a look at little brother, he's a dancin' fool!
Watch him do the loco-motion, hey man, he cool!

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
We're havin' a party (a party, party, party, party)
Gonna dance and play (dance and play now)
We're havin' a party (whoa yeah)
While the folks are away (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)!

We're havin' a party (a party, party, party, party, party)
Gonna dance and play (dance and play)
We're havin' a party (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
While the folks are away!

Aw here come ma, pullin' up in the drive (here she comes)!
Everybody make a run for it
'cause there ain't enough places to hide (no place to run)!
We got one minute to clean up this place or we'll be skinned alive, but remember
Before you go, next week, same place, same time!

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
We're havin' a party (everybody)
Gonna dance and play (what'd I say now)
We're havin' a party (come on over)
While the folks are away! (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

We're havin' a party (ooh, alright)
Gonna dance and play (a party, party, party, party, party)
We're havin' a party (oh, yeah)
While the folks are away (come on over)
We're havin' a party
Gonna dance and play (a party, party, party, party, party)
We're havin' a party (oh, yeah)
