What A Party Lyrics


by . From The Wild Party.


OFFSTAGE VOICES
And the gang took wing,
And the shadows leapt,
Any fool could see -
What a party.

ENSEMBLE
And the gang took wing,
And the shadows leapt,
Any fool could see -
What a party.

While the candles glared
And the neighbors wept
Any swell could be
At a party.

Lightly,
Quickly,
Slightly sickly
Pasty,
Tasty,
Like birds of prey
'Round the hors d'oeuvre tray.

When the laughter starts
And the game begins
You can guarantee
That's how to blow
That's how to grow
That how to throw a party!

(The guests enter, one by one.)

BURRS
Madelaine True -

MADELAINE
Lesbian.

BURRS
Eddie -

EDDIE
Pugilist.

ALL
Crazy,
Crowded,
Smartly shrouded.
Drinking,
Stinking,
Till by and by
They began to fly.

BURRS & ENSEMBLE
Jackie -
Sweet dancer.

BURRS & ENSEMBLE
The brothers d'Armano

OSCAR
Pianists.

PHIL
Composers.

BURRS & ENSEMBLE
Dolores.

DOLORES
A hooker.

BURRS & ENSEMBLE
Mae.

MAE
A looker.

BURRS & ENSEMBLE
Nadine.

MADELAINE
A minor.

BURRS & ENSEMBLE
Oooh:
And the gang took wing,
And the clock ticked on
Any fool could see,
What a party.

For the mood could swing
When the blues got gone
While the booze was free
At a party.

Panting,
Prying,
Loudly lying,
Raving,
Craving
Like birds of prey
'Round the hors d'oeuvre tray -

(Queenie appears, dressed all in white.)

BURRS
But tonight,
Queenie surpassed them all,
And tonight,
Queenie stood firm and tall.

ENSEMBLE
With a face of ivory,
And gold for hair.

BURRS
She was something
To kneel before in prayer.
My God,
Queenie,
You're looking swell.

ENSEMBLE
Quoth Queenie
