Edgar the Party Man

This song is by John Gorka and appears on the album Between Five And Seven (1996).

My name is Edgar
And I am a party man
I come from a party town
I come in my party van

I bet I could make you laugh
Hey would you like a beer
I got some in the chest outside
It's a little warm in here

Where are you going now
Oh I guess she heard that one
She should tell by my good time grin
That I can be a lot of fun

Now I'm almost 46
And I used to have a wife
But that was nearly 15 years ago
Now she's got another life

Oh she had a real strong way
I met her on a moving bus
We got off at different stops
And that was just the start of us

Now I never get too deep
That's the way it always seems
And I need a lot of sleep
Because I have a lot of dreams

Oh I still believe in love
'Specially when it's bright and new
Although I never stick around
Because I need some time for them
And some time for you

Yeah I've got a need to roam
Oh I've got a restless streak
I've got a whole world inside of me
No one ever gets a peek
My name is Edgar
