PARTY LIGHTS (Claudine Clark)

Live 11 Dec 1975 version

[Spoken intro:] This is for, uh, lovely listening. Give thanks for her guitar, what more could she give? Old man, time! The horns ain't ready? That's good!

One, two, three!

Relax, now, and listen!
Mama, dear, oh, looky here, oh, here
There's a party tonight
I can't sleep because across the street
Uh-oh, uh-oh, I see them party lights

I see the lights, I see the party lights
Red and blue and green
Now, everybody in the crowd is there
But mama won't let me make the scene

Mama, dear, oh, look it here, oh, here
There goes Mary Lou
I see Tommy and Joe and Betty and Sue
Uh-oh - there goes my girlfriend, too

I see the lights, I see the party lights
Red and blue and green
Now, everybody in the crowd is there
But mama won't let me make the scene
Big Man!

Well, now, mama, dear, oh, look here, oh, here
I'm feeling oh so blue
We're doing the Twist, the Fool, the Mashed Potato
And I'm here looking at you

Well, I see the lights, I see the party lights
Oh, they're red and blue and green
Everybody in the crowd is there
But mama won't let me make a – listen!

Now, mama, dear, oh, look it here, oh, here
There goes Mary Lou
I see Tommy and Joe, I see Betty and Steven!
There goes my girlfriend, too

Whoa, oh, oh, I see the lights, I see the party lights
Red and blue and green
Everybody in the crowd is there
But mama won't let me make a scene
Well, I see the lights, I see the party lights
Red and blue and green
Well, everybody in the crowd is there
Mama won't let me make a scene
I see the lights, I see the party lights
Red and blue (red and blue and green)
Everybody's there (everybody in the crowd is there)
But mama won't let me make a scene
No, my mama
Won't let me make a scene
Whoa, my mama
Won't let me make a scene

[Spoken outro:] Whoa! I see them lights. I see them party lights.
