When The Party's Over

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?
I'll 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

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 the party's over,
you can fall in love with me
