No 1 Party Anthem

  • So you're on the prowl wondering whether she left already or not
    Leather jacket collar popped like antenna, never knowing when to stop
    Sunglasses indoors par for the course, lights in the floors and sweat on the walls
    Cages and poles

    Call off the search for your soul or put it on hold again
    She's having a sly indoor smoke,
    She calls the folks who run this her oldest friends,
    Sipping her drink and laughing at imaginary jokes
    As all the signals are sent
    Her eyes invite you to approach
    And it seems as though those lumps in your throat
    That you just swallowed have got you going
    Come on, come on, come on
    Come on, come on, come on
    Number one party anthem

    She's a certified mind blower knowing full well that I don't
    I may suggest there's somewhere from which I might know her
    Just to get the ball to roll
    Drunken monologues, confused because
    It's not like I'm falling in love I just want you to do me no good
    And you look like you could

    Come on, come on, come on
    Come on, come on, come on
    Number one party anthem
    Come on, come on, come on
    Before the moment's gone
    Number one party anthem

    The look of love
    The rush of blood
    The "she's with me"
    The Gallic shrug
    The shutterbugs
    The camera plus
    The black and white and the colour dodge
    The good time girls
    The cubicles
    The house of fun
    The number one party anthem

    Come on, come on, come on
    Come on, come on, come on
    Come on, come on, come on
    Come on, come on, come on
    Before the moment's gone
    Number one party anthem
    Number one party anthem
    Number one party anthem
