It's My Party

Album: Q: Soul Bossa Nostra (2010)
  • It's my party and I'll cry if I want to
    Cry if I want to
    Cry if I want to
    You would cry too if it's happened to you
    Nobody knows where my johnny has gone
    But Judy left the same time
    Why was he holding her hand
    When he's supposed to be mine

    Play all my records keep dancing all night
    But leave me alone for a while
    'Till johnny's dancing with me
    I've got no reason to smile

    Judy and johnny just walked through that door
    Like a queen with her king
    Oh what a birthday surprise
    Judy's wearing his ring Writer/s: Elof Loelv, Herb Wiener, John Gluck Jr., Joseph Bartlett-Vanderpuye, Seymour Gottlieb, Wally Gold
