“Swingin’ Party”

Bring your own lampshade, somewhere there’s a party

Here it’s never endin’, can’t remember when it started

Pass around the lampshade, there’ll be plenty enough room in jail

If bein’ wrong’s a crime, I’m serving forever

If bein’ strong’s your kind, then I need help here with this feather

If bein’ afraid is a crime, we hang side by side

At the swingin’ party down the line

At the swingin’ party down the line

Pound the prairie pavement, losin’ proposition

Quittin’ school and goin’ to work and never goin’ fishin’

Water all around, never learned how to swim now

If bein’ wrong’s a crime, I’m serving forever

If bein’ strong’s your kind, then I need help here with this feather

If bein’ afraid is a crime, we hang side by side

At the swingin’ party down the line

At the swingin’ party down the line

Bring your own lampshade, somewhere there’s a party

Here it’s never endin’, can’t remember when it started

Pass around the lampshade, there’ll be plenty enough room in jail

If bein’ wrong’s a crime, I’m serving forever

If bein’ strong is what you want, then I need help here with this feather

If bein’ afraid is a crime, we hang side by side

At the swingin’ party down the line
