We're havin' a party,
Everybody's swingin'.
Tonight won't you come down,
Don't make me dance all night alone (Alright!).

Call up your girlfriends, come out tonight,
I'll call up my best friends, come out tonight
We'll put on our best shreds and finest cologne
And we'll turn the Casanova on

Come on now Maria lose the tragic.
Come on now Maria show me some magic.
Meet on the warm San Juan top at twilight,
And watch the carnival lights explode

We're havin' a party,
Everybody's swingin'.
Tonight won't you come down out of your tower,
Don't make me dance all night alone.

I've seen it from the window, around,
And I can catch your perfume every hour,
So come on before we get much older,
And that can happen any one of these nights.

Before we turn to ghosts on the Missis sand,
Fall in line to more conducent plans,
I never took a shot to the higher minds,
But I can hold the soft waltz down.

Meet me tonight,
And see what can happen.

Meet me tonight,
And see what can happen.

We're having a party,
Everybody's swingin',
Tonight won't you come down,
Don't make me dance all night alone

'Cause everybody's shakin' like the end of the world,
And everybody's waitin' on the end of the world,
And I ain't got a friend baby left in the world,
Don't make me dance all night alone...

We're havin' a party,
Everybody's swinging,
Tonight won't you come down out of your tower,
Don't make me dance all night alone

'Cause everybody's shakin' like the end of the world,
And everybody's waitin' on the end of the world,
And I ain't got a friend baby left in the world,
Don't make me dance all night alone
Don't make me dance all night alone
