The Party

from by The Yellow Hope Project



I honestly don't remember forgetting about tonight.
All I can really say is that it just slipped my mind.
But let me try. Let me try to make things right.
Let's head over to the party.

I love you more than anything else in the world.
But do I love all your friends? Well, I'm not so sure.
Honestly, I'm begging you please. Don't get so angry with me.
I promise I'll have fun at the party.

Will Jenny and Tony bring their macaroni salad?
I promise I'll tell Linda that she looks thinner.
I'll say it with a smile.

Will Peggy and Ben bring deviled eggs again, like they always?
Won't even bring up Larry when I talk to Mary,
Or Sarah when I talk to Frank.

I can have fun with just about anyone, you know I can.
But I never have any fun with your cousin, Stan.
When he talks to me, it's inappropriate and obscene.
Will Stan be there tonight at the party?

I confess while you were getting dressed I did nothing.
Do we have some time to buy some wine?
Or pick up a dessert?

You've told me time and time again, and I know you are tired
Of telling me there's only one thing that you require:
Is for me to not make a scene being sarcastic and mean.
I'll behave myself at the party.

I can't wait to go to the party.

When can we come home from the party?
