"I Don't Want to Spoil the Party" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
I don't want to spoil the party so I'll go
I would hate my disappointment to show
There's nothing for me here so I will disappear
If she turns up while I'm gone please let me know

I've had a drink or two and I don't care,
There's no fun in what I do if she's not there
I wonder what went wrong I've waited far too long
I think I'll take a walk and look for her

Though tonight she's made me sad
I still love her
If I find her I'll be glad
I still love her

I don't want to spoil the party so I'll go
I would hate my disappointment to show
There's nothing for me here so I will disappear
If she turns up while I'm gone please let me know

Though tonight she's made me sad
I still love her
If I find her I'll be glad
I still love her

I've had a drink or two and I don't care
There's no fun in what I do if she's not there
I wonder what went wrong I've waited far too long
I think I'll take a walk and look for her

    General CommentThis song is actually about how John hated going to press conferences and interviews, but the other Beatles loved it, so he didn't "want to spoil the party" and acted like he enjoyed it.

    General CommentGreat song. Not sure what the exact meaning is - I had never heard the press conference thing, but it sure would fit. Tight harmonies and a great country flavored guitar from George.

    General CommentThis one's pretty simple. Guy breaks up with girl. They still share the same friends. He doesn't want to be a downer and spoil the party, so he leaves. He leaves a message with the revellers to let him know if his ex shows up at the party. Y' see he still loves her. PS - He's also having a few 'cocktails' to drown his sorrows.

    General Commentit is about the 1964 Democrat convention. The Beatles were infatuated with Jackie )
