  • The party's over, it's time to call it a day
    They've burst your pretty balloon
    And taken the moon away
    It's time to wind up the masquerade
    Just make your mind up
    The piper must be paid

    The party's over, the candles flicker and dim
    You danced and dreamed through the night
    It seemed to be right just being with him
    Now you must wake up, all dreams must end
    Take off your makeup, the party's over
    It's all over, my friend

    The party's over, it's time to call it a day
    They've burst your pretty balloon
    And taken the moon away
    Now you must wake up, all dreams must end
    Take off your makeup, the party's over
    It's all over, my friend

    It's all over, my friend
