Well, tonight I'll throw a party
And I know who I'll invite
There's a strange and lonely person
With whom I'll spend this night

There'll be no old sad memories
To haunt me 'til I die
In that room, there'll be a bottle
And me, myself and I
In that room, there'll be a bottle
And me, myself and I

I've been introduced to many
People I don't understand
I've been in the house of lonely
I've shook a thousand shaking hands

But tonight I'll be with someone
Who will look me in the eye
And in that room, there'll be a bottle
And me, myself and I
In that room, there'll be a bottle
And me, myself and I

At that party, you'll see me
When I was just a child
In a room full of happy
With a heart, so meek and mild

And that child will meet a ghost
That will haunt him, oh, so bad
From a family of confusion
Pretending love they never had

So, tonight I'll throw that party
And I know just what I'll do
Yeah, I'll meet myself at midnight
And cry the whole night through

Yeah, I'll meet that ghost of sadness
And he'll look me in the eye
And in that room, there'll be that bottle
And me, myself and I
In that room, there'll be a bottle
And me, myself and I
