Went to a party the other night, everybody was there
Thought that I would have some fun as I started up the stair
Somebody tried to ruin it when he won a raffle prize
Tried to shake and shock us right before our eyes
While we danced, while we were dancing
Who was the fool throw the basket in the pool?

It was filled with the finest cheeses filled with imported wine
Wish that I had won it and I wish that it were mine
I know some wino lives outside of town
Who would gladly cut your throat if he could drink it down
While we danced, while we were dancing
Who was the fool throw the basket in the pool?

If I had found out who he was, if I'd have found his face
Next time we have a party gonna find out his name
I've been on the ocean swimming know porpoise led the way
It wasn't worth the matter and it wasn't worth the pay
We were there, go right on dancing
Who was the fool throw the basket in the pool?

How can I go swimming now? My world is laid to waste
It was the worst of manners and it was the worst of taste
Why can't we be left alone? Think that it was a crime
If everyone was groovy we could all have a real good time
We could dance, go right on dancing
Who was the fool throw the basket in the pool?
