Was (not Was) – The Party Broke Up lyrics

Jason came in from Peoria
Wearing silk sunglasses
His girlfriend Gloria wore metal shoes
That emitted poison gases from the heels
One drink of that stuff and -Zam!-
The walls became floors
Became ceilings became doors
The singer just kept singing "Feelings"
That's right when I snapped
Needless to say, the party broke up
That flashing tie was a riot!
And what was that other remark that you made?
Oh yes, you're unemployed.
Me too. I know what you mean
Someone began to discuss paranoia
When lightning destroyed half the room
With one blast
The last of us killed off the wine
And went home
Needless to say, the party broke up
