Lyrics

saxophones were playing in a pool of light
corridors of mirrors in a never ending night
jukebox electric shining in your face
arms like a gorilla playing a stumbling bass

you were singing under water when you started to drown
i never did like you much so i didn't stick around
matthew was the only one who lasted till the end
he was swimming in the kitchen when his mind began to bend

in party town, party down
i saw you with your dress torn down
in party town, party down
you were naked and alone

officers and criminals were walking hand in hand
the king of executioners he was singing in the band
microscopes and laserbeams they all were used
girls were drinking novocaine to keep themselves amused

senators and ministers were hanging in the sky
people paying in advance to watch the scene go by
magazines were quoting all the things that had been said
making fun and money and the fact that she was dead

party girl, party girl, i saw you in your party world
party girl, party girl, you were naked and alone

party town, party town, where the beat goes down
party town, party town, you can hear them beg for more
party town, party town, the girls don't keep you hanging round
in party town, party town, they nail you to the floor
