Lyrics


More Than A Party

Lots of surprises in store

This isn't a party

It's a whole lot more


We've had enough of this blind man's bluff

You've kept us in the dark for long enough


This is more than a party

More than a party

More than a party


Keep telling us we're to have fun

Then take all the ice cream so we've got none


The failed magician waves his wand

And in an instant the laughter's gone


Loads of surprises in store

This isn't a party

It's a whole lot more
