Jackson, Wanda - Let's Have A Party Lyrics

Some people like to rock, some people like to roll
But movin' and a-groovin' gonna satisfy my soul
Let's have a party, hoo, let's have a party
Well, send him 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 him 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 him 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 and fill him up and set him on the floor
Let's have a party, hoo, let's have a party
Well, send him 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, he got the possum in the pot
Let's have a party, hoo, let's have a party
Well, send him 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
We gon' have a party tonight

Jackson, Wanda Let's Have A Party Comments
  1. dan parks

    I remember growing up in Fairfax Oklahoma and on Saturday night going to Jumper's Roller Inn to listen to and see Wanda Jackson in the late 50's and early 60's. Now that is what I call growing up.

  2. egads2

    Lady Little Richard

  3. Nemeraton 45

    I love you so much, the biggest sadness is that I cant huig you, love you Wanda

  4. Wayne Elmore 1963

    I grew up with this kind of music and it's some of the best rock and roll out there!

  5. mosrite60

    Bakersfield gal. great song . great singer. mos60

  6. Michael Naisbitt

    What ever happened to her

  7. Kacema70

    Rock & Roll rude girl. I love it.

  8. Charles Kelemen

    There is a Wanda Jackson suite at the Safari (?) Motel in Tucumcari, New Mexico. It's on the old Rt. 66 and it's rather cool.

  9. Callum

    A woman called Wanda I know died earlier this week. Can't say I'll miss her she was horrible.

  10. purple plump

    82 and still rocking !!!!! Gooooooooo girl, keep rocking ! Awesome 😍

  11. flomurdock

    Anybody paying attention to the piano player? It was revolutionary.

    Robert Vaughn

    A Jerry Lee Lewis kinda player


    @Robert Vaughn Big Al Downing

    Robert Vaughn

    @flomurdock yes, I was just comparing similar styles. love it!!

  12. Игорь Воронин

    Сильнейшая рок н рольщица супер таких не много

  13. Lee Rocheleau

    This is going to be the first song at midnight 2020

  14. Francisco Javier Rodríguez Hidalgo

    Simplemente genial. Impresionante

  15. Abbey Orr

    Wow she is good

  16. Robert Phillifent

    A colleague of mine thought this was Brenda Lee but Wanda's is much much more gritty, A brilliant record!

  17. anthony belcher

    Awesome song

  18. RockRobT01

    Our little combo, we call ourselves Sentimental Journey, perform this song at our old folks home gigs in the Kelowna area, British Columbia.  Wanda's is one of the most perfect rock'n'roll recording ever made.  Wild, but utterly smooth.

  19. Eric Elmer

    I love her voice

  20. Eddie Renegade

    "I ain't but never kissed no bear, never kissed no goose, but sure cin catch a chickin in the middle of the room....." them thar's lyrics, you best believe!

  21. Frans Dielis

    Maybe the best R&R song ever

  22. Carl Paulsen

    Jeg syns så synd på dagens ungdom som ikke fikk oppleve dette. Ikke rart at verden går til helevete!

  23. Jo-anne W

    I am Australian and walked into a shop when in Manhattan a few years ago and they were playing Wanda Jackson...from that moment on I was hooked. Still am.

  24. robert sinnett

    saw her in montreal......energetic x100

  25. robert phillifent

    Amazing! What a performance. A friend of mine thought this was BRENDA LEE!

  26. tippimail1

    She's 82 today-this sounds as good today as is it did in '58.

  27. Naomi Brunt

    Rock n roll is the best

  28. atomi kid

    She sounds like a dude who's voice was edited

  29. John Hull

    Sweet looking young lady with a distinctive baaaad girl voice and persona. Loooong before the likes of Madonna, there was Wanda Jackson ... at a time when the overwhelming majority of female singers like Brenda Lee, etc were consistently groomed for the “good girl” image, Wanda Jackson broke the mold.

  30. zygfryd69

    whole lotta love!!!

  31. freddy wessels

    sy was so COOL  xxxx

  32. Rony

    I'm so happy she's still alive ☺️

  34. Sandrine Rousseau


  35. James madison

    She should stock up on beer so she doesn't have to keep sending her her Friends to the store to buy some more.

  36. SuperHOGGA

  40. Christopher Smallbone

    Most definitely the Queen of Rockabilly she is 81 and retired in march this year she was the queen when making music meant something not like this mass produced bunch of kids being rolled out as quick as Simon Cowell can get them out milking them dry before throwing them away and moving on to the next one.

  41. john e Lawler

    he was massive in Germany in the mid 70s
