THERE'S A PARTY GOIN' ON
(J. Barry - D. Covay)
WANDA JACKSON (CAPITOL ST-1511, 1961)

Beefsteak Charly is a-throwing a feast
Right around the corner down the Road East
And there's a party goin' on
Ooh, there's a party goin' on
We're gonna swing it, shake it, make it
Shimmy till the break of dawn

Now everybody grab your Sunday best
Let's make it on down to Charly's nest
'Cause there's a party goin' on
Ooh, there's a party goin' on
We're gonna swing it, shake it, make it
Shimmy till the break of dawn
Well, you betcha yeah!

So grab your shoes and baby grab your mink
And leave those dishes on the kitchen sink
'Cause there's a party goin' on
Ooh, there's a party goin' on
We're gonna swing it, shake it, make it
Shimmy till the break of dawn
Yeah, yeah, yeah!

You don't need a rocket to take you into space
Just make it down to Charly's, he's a-saving you a place
'Cause there's a party goin' on
Ooh, there's a party goin' on
We're gonna swing it, shake it, make it
Shimmy till the break of dawn
We're gonna swing it, shake it, make it
Shimmy till the break of dawn
