Party On The Patio Lyrics

by ZZ Top

I found an empty house in my neighborhood
I knew that we shouldn't but I thought we could
Knew it wouldn't be hard to slide into the backyard
Called all my friends and slipped a hundred to the guard
We turned on the radio and had a party on the patio

Betty's in the sauna and she's getting kind of hot
Mary's in the icebox wishin' she was not
Connie's in the whirlpool, Jimmy's tryin' to be cool
Libby's in the bushes 'cause she's nobody's fool
We turned the lights down low and had a party on the patio

Heard the cops are coming so we tried to jump the fence
Mary didn't make it and we haven't seen her since
Connie had another drink, Jimmy simply couldn't think
Billy G. was passed out underneath the sink
But everybody's gonna show for another party on the patio
