Well, this is my backyard, it's my back gate
I hate to start my parties late
Here's the party cart, ain't that great?
That ain't the best part, baby, just wait

I said that's a genuine weather vane
It moves with the breeze
Portable hammock, honey, who needs trees
It's casual entertaining we aim to please

At my parties, alright

Check out the shingles, it's brand new
Excuse me, while I mingle, hi, how are you?
Hey everybody, let me give you a toast
This one's for me the host with the most

It's getting a trifle colder step inside my home
That's a brass toilet tissue holder with it's own telephone
That's musical doorbell it don't ring, I ain't kiddin'
Plays 'America The Beautiful' and 'Tie A Yellow Ribbon'

Boy, this punch is a trip, it's okay in my book
Here, take a sip maybe a little heavy on the fruit
Ah, here comes the dip you may kiss the cook

Let me show you, honey, it's easy, look
You take a fork and spike 'em, say, did you try these?
So glad you like 'em the secrets in the cheese
It's casual entertaining we aim to please

At my parties, alright
At my parties, alright, uh huh

Now don't talk to me about the polar bear
Don't talk to me about ozone layer
Ain't so much of anything these days, even the air

They're running out of rhinos, what do I care ?
Let's hear it for the dolphin let's hear it for the trees
Ain't runnin' out of nothin' in my deep freeze
It's casual entertaining we aim to please

At my parties, alright, uh huh
Do what you please
At my parties, alright, uh huh

Yeah, at my parties, alright, uh huh
You do what you please
At my parties, alright, uh huh

Oh yes, at my party I told you like that
That's nice

At my parties, alright, uh huh
At my parties, alright, uh huh
At my parties, alright, uh huh
Do what you please
At my parties, alright, uh huh
