Lets Have A Party Lyrics

Artist: Wanda Jackson


Let's Have A Party
Wanda Jackson with instrumental backup by Gene Vincent's Blue Caps.
Written by Phil Baxter, Cliff Friend, and Joe Haymes

Peaked at # 37 in 1960


Some people like to rock, some people like to roll
But movin' and a-groovin's gonna satisfy my soul
Let's have a party
Hoo, let's have a party
Well, send `im to the store Let's buy some more
Let's have a party tonight

I never kissed a bear, I never kissed a *`coon*
But I can shake a chicken in the middle of the room
Let's have a party
Hoo, let's have a party
Well, send `im to the store Let's buy some more
Let's have a party tonight



I never kissed a bear, I never kissed a goon (?)
But I can shake a chicken in the middle of the room
Let's have a party
Hoo, let's have a party
Well, send `im to the store Let's buy some more
Let's have a party tonight

Honky-Tonky' Joe is knockin' at the door
Bring him in an' fill `im up an' sit `im on the floor
Let's have a party
Hoo, let's have a party
Well, send `im to the store Let's buy some more
Let's have a party tonight

The meat is on the stove, the bread's a-gettin' hot
Everybody run, they got the `possum in the pot
Let's have a party
Hoo, let's have a party
Well, send `im to the store Let's buy some more
Let's have a party tonight

Let's have a party tonight
Let's have a party tonight
FADE
We're gonna have a party tonight


TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: The word "'coon" is a guess because it is really hard to
understand. The word does have a long-O sound which is fairly close to rhyming
with the subsequent "room". Plus there are 2 other animals mentioned, a bear
and a `possum", so why not a raccoon, too?

Probably because Coon was/is a racial slur, and Wanda would not sing something like that. It is goon
