There's a party down on the corner, do you want to go?
They got rhythm, a little blues, and a whole lot of soul
I don't care what you've got to say
You're comin' with me anyway
We're not here for a long time
We're here for a good time

I know it's hard makin' a living every day
And I know how hard you've been workin'
But now it's time to play
Tell that wolf waitin' at your door
He'll just have to wait some more
We're not here for a long time
We're here for a good time

Some say the world is ending
It might just come to pass
Ain't no use in pretending
Tonight could be the last

Tell the mailman to hold the mail
Get ready to wag your tail
We're not here for a long time
We're here for a good time

Some say the world is ending
Who knows if it's true?
Ain't no use in pretending
There's not much we can do

Leave a message for those who call
We're out havin' us a ball
We're not here for a long time
We're here for a good time
