Doris Day – The Party's Over lyrics

The party's over
It's time to call it day
They've burst your pretty balloon
And taken the moon away

It's time to wind up
The masquerade
Just make your mind up
The piper must be paid

The party's over
The candles flicker and dim
You danced and dream
Through the night
It seemed to be right
Just being with him

Now you must wake up
All my dreams must end

Take off your makeup
The party's over
It's all over, my friend

Now you must wake up
All my dreams must end
Take off your makeup
The party's over
It's all over, my friend

    To me the song is appropriate for the ending of any happy affair, particularly a love affair of short duration. Unfortunately all things end and we must return to the realities of every day life, happy and contented with the memories of good times with friends or lovers. This song is the essence of the ending of a beautiful experience, it reminds us of the temporary nature of life. The party's over, it's all over, my friend.
