Past two o'clock

all singing and dancing

past two o'clock

the party's in full flow


pity the neighbour

do him a favour

give him some earplugs

for good behaviour


sing to him gentle

or he'll go mental

he's started shouting

words non-parental

(Goodness!)


his ears are ringing

stones he'll start flinging

he doesn't like the

songs that we're singing


He's pulled the fuse now

We'll have to choose now

whether to stop and

admit that we lose now


despite that fellah

we're feelin' mellah

since we're unplugged

we'll sing a cappella
