Wasn't That a Party?


From what I've been told, it certainly was a party with my Uncle around. ;) I love you, Uncle Bret and I miss you like crazy....

This was his favorite song and it might be played during the funeral, should the church allow it. (Ahem) But even if they don't, I'll still have it in my head during the service. Also, I find it especially funny how a "Tommy" is mentioned in the song, as he and my dad, Tom would get into all sorts of mischief together back in the day. ;) Figures.






Could've been the whiskey
Might've been the gin
Could've been the three or four six-packs,
I don't know, but look at the mess I'm in
My head's like a football
I think I'm going to die
Tell me, me oh, me oh my
Wasn't that a party

Someone took a grapefruit
Wore it like a hat
I saw someone under my kitchen table
Talking to my old tom cat
They were talking about hockey
The cat was talking back
Long about then everything went black
Wasn't that a party

I'm sure it's just my memory
Playing tricks on me
But I think I saw my buddy
Cutting down my neighbor's tree

Could've been the whiskey
Might've been the gin
Could've been the three or four six-packs,
I don't know, but look at the mess I'm in
My head's like a football
I think I'm going to die
Tell me, me oh, me oh my
Wasn't that a party

Billy, Joe and Tommy
Well they went a little far
They were sittin' in my back yard, blowing on a sireen
From somebody's police car

So you see, Your Honor
It was all in fun
That little bitty track meet down on Main street
Was just to see if the cops could run
Well, they run us in to see you
In an alcoholic haze
I sure can use those thirty days
To recover from the party

Could've been the whiskey
Might've been the gin
Could've been the three or four six-packs,
I don't know, but look at the mess I'm in
My head's like a football
I think I'm going to die
Tell me, me oh, me oh my
Wasn't that a party

Could've been the whiskey
Might've been the gin
Could've been the three or four six-packs,
I don't know, but look at the mess I'm in
My head's like a football
I think I'm going to die
Tell me, me oh, me oh my
Wasn't that a party

Wasn't that a party
Wasn't that a party
Wasn't that a party
Wasn't that a party...
