(s. cooke)
Producer: martyn ware
Album: non-album track
B-side of the "two people" single

We're havin' a party,
Everybody's swingin',
Dancin' to the music on the radio,
Champagne is in the icebox,
And the popcorn's on the table,
And me and my baby,
Are out here on the floor.

So listen mister dj,
Keep those records playin',
'cause I'm a-havin' such a good time,
Ў®cause I'm dancin' with my baby.

And everybody's swingin',
Jackie's doin' that "twist" now,
If you'll take requests,
Then I've got a few for you,
Play that song called "soul twist"
And what about the one by that fellow I knew,
And don't forget "the mashed potato",
No other song will do.

Yeah listen, mr. dj,
Just keep those records playin',
'cause I'm a-havin' such a good time,
Dancin' with my baby.

We're havin' a party,
Everybody's swingin',
Dancin' to the music,
On the radio.

Havin' a party,
Everybody's swingin',
Dancin' to the music,
On the radio,
Well one more time.

We're havin' a party (havin' a party),
Everybody's swingin' (everybody's swingin'),
Dancin' to the music(dancin' to the music),
On the radio (on the radio)

Champagne's in the icebox (havin' a party),
Popcorn's on the table (everybody's swingin'),
Me and my baby (dancin' to the music),
Out here on the floor (on the radio),
Oh now everybody.

Everybody's swingin' (everybody's swingin'),
Dancin' to the music (dancin' to the music),
On the radio (on the radio).

We're havin' a party (havin' a party),
Everybody's swingin' (everybody's swingin'),
Dancin' to the music (dancin' to the music)
On the radio (on the radio).
