​I Must Stop Going To Parties

This song is by Lindisfarne and appears on the album Sleepless Nights (1982).

Hull

I must stop going to parties, I think they're doing me in
My hair is falling out and I'm getting kind of thin.
I must stop going to parties, for that there is no doubt
Next time you see me there, will you kindly throw me out
I must stop going to parties, and hanging about.

For instance take last Friday, when Terry came to tea
I thought I had enough to drink, but not enough for me
He said would I like to accompany him, to a place just over the hill
I said I really shouldn't, but perhaps I think I will.

I must stop going to parties, I think they're doing me in
My hair is falling out and I'm getting kind of thin.
I must stop going to parties, for that there is no doubt
Next time you see me there, will you kindly throw me out
I must stop going to parties, and hanging about.

You seen the same old faces, you've seen them all before
You're gonna get so wasted, you won't be able to walk out the door
Then someone comes on heavy, 'bout the war in what's it's name
I say I think you're out of date mate, shouldn't that be the other place.

I must stop going to parties, I think they're doing me in
My hair is falling out and I'm getting kind of thin.
I must stop going to parties, for that there is no doubt
Next time you see me there, will you kindly throw me out
I must stop going to parties, and hanging about.

Well the punch has all been drunk and the drunks have all been punched,

The magistrates irate and the doctor out to lunch

I don't know why I came in here, I'm such a weak-kneed creep

I must stop going to parties, I've got to get some sleep.

Excuse me, yeah it's Terry - won't you get to a party?

I must stop going to parties hanging about 4 x
