Yeah, we just thought we'd drop in!
Where's your icebox?
hey, where's the punch?
Ew, house-a-tosis!

Who's to blame when parties really get out of hand?
Who's to blame when they get poorly planned?


Crashers get bombed, slobs make a mess
You know sometimes they'll even ruin your wife's dress
Crashers getttin' bombed
Who's to blame?
Can you pull it back in line?
Can you salvage it in time?
What can you do to save a party?
Parcheesi, charades?
A spur-of-the-moment scavenger hunt
Or Queen of the Nile? (aah, who turned out the lights?)

Bombed, crashers gettin' bombed
Crashers gettin' bombed, bombed, bombed, bombed, now, who's to blame?

Who's to blame when situations degenerate?
Disgusting things you'd never anticipate?


People get sick, they play the wrong games
You know, it could ruin your name
Crashers gettin' bombed
Who's to blame?
Can you pull it back in line?
Can you salvage it in time?


It shouldn't be difficult!
Try not to condemn!
Okay, who ordered pizza?
I'll be tactful when making the rounds
Be tactful when making the rounds and maybe
You can save a party gone out of bounds (party gone out of bounds)
Party gone out of bounds (gone out of bounds)
Party gone out of bounds
Gone out of bounds

    General CommentThe partying voices in the background sound like the B-52s themselves.

    General CommentProto-typical, classic B-52s...almost all their songs 'mean' this...a big party, a big joke, not taking anything (especially themselves) too seriously.
    "OK, who ordered pizza?"
    Definitely a party out of bounds...

    My InterpretationI think almost every B52s' song with seemingly esoteric meaning has some sort of subtext. Party out of Bounds I think is referring to the government, making an analogy of running a party to running a country.
