Garden Party Lyrics

I went to a garden party - To reminisce with my old friends
A chance to share old memories ---- And play our songs again

When I got to the garden party - They all knew my name
No one recognized me ---- I didn't look the same

But it's all right now - I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can't please everyone - So ya got to please yourself

People came from miles around - Everyone was there
Yoko brought her walrus ---- There was magic in the air
'N' over in the corner - Much to my surprise
Mr Hughes hid in Dylan's shoes - Wearing his disguise

But it's all right now - I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can't please everyone - So ya got to please yourself
Lott-in-dah-dah - lot-in-dah-dah-dah

Played them all the old songs - Thought that's why they came
No one heard the music ---- We didn't look the same
I said hello - to "Mary Lou" - She belongs to me
When I sang a song about a honky-tonk - It was time to leave

But it's all right now - I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can't please everyone - So ya got to please yourself
Lott-in-dah-dah - lot-in-dah-dah-dah

Someone opened up a closet door - And out stepped Johnny B Goode
Playing guitar Like a-ringin' a bell -- and lookin' like he should
If you gotta play at garden parties - I wish you a lotta luck
But if memories were all I sang - I rather drive a truck

But it's all right now - I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can't please everyone - So ya got to please yourself
Lott-in-dah-dah - lot-in-dah-dah-dah
But it's all right now - I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can't please everyone - So ya got to please yourself
