The afterparty's rickin' girl
And everybody's dancing for you
But you're just drinking all my ballantine
And laughing while your lips turn blue

Your friends are all uptight
And everybody' in an awkward mood
But you're just drinking all my ballantine
And laughing while your lips turn blue

And I'm not really planning on coming back
I thought I told you that
I guess I dreamt I told you that

The streets are slow and silent
And the backyard is a beat parade
So I'm just sweeping up the garbage
While I listen to the songs you play

Where everybody's trying
But they just can't get it straight (no no)
So I'm just sweeping up the garbage
While I whistle all the songs you play

I keep changing my mind all the time
I hope you think that that's alright
Yeah I hope you tell me that's alright (no no)

So I'm just slurrin' in the shade
When the daylight breaks
And You and me have got it made
Yeah I think you and me have got it made (no no)
