By John Lennon
Version: Album version


-"ONE AND A-TWO AND A-ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR!"


ALL RIGHT!

I TOOK MY BABY TO A PARTY LAST NIGHT, AH-HAH-HAH,
SHE WAS SO BEAUTIFUL, SHE MADE ME UPTIGHT, AH-HAH-HAH,
UP CAME A BUTCHER WITH HER JU JUS ALIGHT, AH-HAH-HAH,
IT'S ALL DA-DA-DA-DOWN TO GOODNIGHT VIENNA.

FELT LIKE A BOHUNK BUT I KEPT UP MY COOL, AH-HAH-HAH,
GREEN AS A FROG, MAN, I WAS BACK INTO SCHOOL, AH-HAH-HAH,
ZIPPED UP MY MOUTH 'CAUSE I WAS STARTING TO DROOL, AH-HAH-HAH,
IT'S ALL DA-DA-DA-DOWN TO GOODNIGHT VIENNA.

GET IT UP!
GET IT UP!
GET IT UP!
GET IT UP!

SHE SAID SHE LOVED ME BUT I KNEW SHE WAS LYING, AH-HAH-HAH,
FELT LIKE AN ARAB WHO WAS DANCING THROUGH ZION, AH-HAH-HAH,
DON'T CALL NO DOCTOR WHEN YOU JUST FEEL LIKE CRYING, AH-HAH-HAH,
IT'S ALL DA-DA-DA-DOWN TO GOODNIGHT VIENNA.

GET IT UP! (keep it up!)
GET IT UP! (keep it up!)
GET IT UP! (keep it up!)
GET IT UP! (keep it up!)

I TOOK MY BABY TO A PARTY LAST NIGHT, AH-HAH-HAH,
SHE WAS SO BEAUTIFUL, SHE MADE ME UPTIGHT, AH-HAH-HAH,
UP CAME A BUTCHER WITH HIS NEEDLES IN SIGHT, AH-HAH-HAH,
IT'S ALL DOWN TO GOODNIGHT VIENNA.
