Janis Ian - When The Party's Over Lyrics




Would you like to learn to sing?
Would you like to sing my song?
Would you like to learn to love me best of all?

Anyone can learn the words
And the melody's so plain
This is my song to bring you back again

I can teach you how to sing and dance
With a song and dance routine
And when my party's over
You can fall in love with me

Would like to learn to Tango?
Do you dance the light Fandango?
Teach you how before we're done

Anyone can make it two
Any two can turn to one
And the melody's lost
Before the song's begun

Well, we sound so good together
And so poorly sung alone
Your harmony's an open breeze
Into my sheltered home

I can teach you how to sing and dance
With a song and dance routine
And when my party's over
You can fall in love... with me

Janis Ian When The Party's Over Comments
  1. Aidan Wilson

    There are so many wonderful tracks from the 1970's like this that are not well known , yet it is just as good as 'At 17' which is usually the only song by Janis that is played on the radio these days , the combination of fantastic lyrics , great voice , expressive acoustic guitar and stirring melody really elevates this tune to a whole new level !.

    Ronnie McGregor

    Aidan, it's all part of the fun in seeking out hidden gems.....

    Would you like to learn to sing?

    Would you like to sing my song?
    Would you like to learn to love me best of all?
    Anyone can learn the words
    And the melody's so plain
    This is my song to bring you back again

    I'll teach you how to sing and dance
    With a song and dance routine
    And when the party's over
    You can fall in love with me

    Would you like to learn to tango?
    Do you dance the light fandango?
    I'll teach you how before we're done
    Anyone can make it two
    Many two can turn to one
    And the melody's lost before the song's begun

    Well we sound so good together
    And so poorly sung alone
    Your harmony's an open breeze
    Into my sheltered home

    I can teach you how to sing and dance
    With a song and dance routine
    And when my party's over
    You can fall in love
    With me

    Lovely music, thank you! I work at a radio station (in Finland) and a listener requested this song today.
