Dan Bern - Party By Myself

Song Lyrics

Six in the morning in my room at the Cecil
$94.50 a week stretches me out a little
Six in the morning, it's dope and a magnum
It's borrow me two bucks so I can get to work again

I'm having a party tonight
I'm having a party tonight
I'm having a party tonight
Party by myself

Lunch wagon left, I stayed at my desk
I said I wasn't hungry, nobody questioned me
I bought three 40 ounce magnums and the cigarettes I craved all day
And I visit my dope man at Sixth and Broadway

I'm having a party tonight
I'm having a party tonight
I'm having a party tonight
Party by myself

Lock the door
The word could get around
I got beer and cigarettes
I got a ninth floor view of Main Street
And a working TV set

Six in the evening in my room at the Cecil
Captain Kirk don't care about my breath or about my bloodshot eyes
My beer is my friend and my rock is my friend
And my friends are why I'm getting up tomorrow again

I'm having a party tonight
I'm having a party tonight
I'm having a party tonight
Party by myself
Party by myself
Party by myself
