  • Everybody likes a celebration, happy music and conversation,
    But I'd be lyin' if I said I didn't have the blues.
    In the corner there's a couple dancin',from the kitchen I can hear her laughin',
    Oh I - wish I was celebratin' too.

    I know this night won't last forever,
    I know the sun's gonna shine sometime,
    I need some hope for a bright tomorrow,
    To show this heart is gonna mend just fine.

    So pardon me for my disposition,wish I didn't have to sit and listen,
    She's playin' the same old songs on the stereo,
    She's been lyin' since the day I met her,I'd be better off to just forget her,
    Oh I - would rather be lonesome or go.

    I know this night won't last forever,
    I know the sun's gonna shine sometime.
    I need some hope for a bright tomorrow,
    To show this heart is gonna mend just fine.

    Such a ridiculous situation pretending there's nothing wrong,
    She's comin' on with the invitation I wonder who is takin' her home.

    I know this night won't last forever,
    I know the sun's gonna shine sometime,
    I need some hope for a bright tomorrow,
    To show this heart is gonna mend just fine. Writer/s: BILL LA BOUNTY, ROY FREELAND
