“The Party That We’re Gonna Have Tomorrow Night” LYRICS

Mac:
Party comin’ up on Cannery Row.

Growing Group:
Party comin’ up on Cannery Row.

Mac:
Hear the rumble over Cannery Row?

Growing Group:
Hear the rumble over Cannery Row?

Mac:
Rumblin’, mumblin’, murmurin’ low­–

Growing Group:
Rumblin’, mumblin’, murmurin’ low­–

Mac:
Like a cyclone ready to blow!

Growing Group:
Like a cyclone ready to blow!

Mac:
Gettin’ ready to pop,
Gettin’ ready to bust,
Gettin’ ready to blow!

A Newcomer:
When do we go?

Crowd:
Tomorrer!

Newcomer:
Tomorrer!

All:
Tomorrer! Tomorrer! Tomorrer!

Mac:
Oh, there never was a party
Like the party that we’re gonna have tomorrow night!
What a sweetheart of a party—
We’ll be rowdy, loud, and hearty till the sun gets bright!

Oh, there never was a clambake we recall
Or a rumpus or a ruckus or a ball
Like the party that we’re gonna have tomorrow night,
The best damn party of all!

A Man:
You never et such beautiful spaghetti!
The boys have never thrown so much confetti!

Another Man:
The girls have never looked so come-and-getty—
As the girls are gonna look tomorrow night!

Mac:
Before the party reaches its conclusion
There may be an occasional confusion,
A casual abrasion or contusion.

Hazel:
What?

Mac:
There’ll be lots of busted heads tomorrow night!

Hazel:
Oh!

All:
Oh, there never was a party
Like the party that we’re gonna have tomorrow night!
Everyone’ll tie a bun on
And the games and fun’ll run on till the sun gets bright!

By the time we get to climbin’ up the wall,
Got a feelin’ that the ceilin’s going to fall
At the party that we’re gonna have tomorrow night,
The best damn party of all!
