When the Party's Over Lyrics

by Janis Ian

Would you like to learn to sing?
Would you like to sing my song?
Would you like to learn to love me best of all?
Anyone can learn the words and the melody's so plain
This is my song to bring you back again

I'll teach you how to sing and dance
With a song and dance routine
And when the party's over
You can fall in love with me

Would you like to learn to tango?
Do you dance the light fandango?
Teach you how before we're done
Anyone can make it two, any two can turn to one
And the melody's lost before the song's begun

Well we sound so good together and so poorly sung alone
Your harmony's an open breeze into my sheltered home

I can teach you how to sing and dance
With a song and dance routine
And when my party's over
You can fall in love with me
