The Scene Changes - 1965
 
Give Myself a Party
 
I've got a lot of memories to last me the rest of my life
so if you don't wanna love me, baby that'll be alright
I'm gonna take all the lovin' that I have for you
gonna take all the loneliness an' sit right down with the blues!
 
I'm gonna give myself a party, an' serve old memories
give my self a party, think of how it used to be
Remember all the happiness that once we knew
gonna give myself a party, just me an' the blues!
 
< instrumental break >
 
A few of your love letters, a photograph or two
a gift you gave on my birthday with words of "I love you"
There's lots of things to think about, when you're feelin' blue
so I'm gonna take all the loneliness, sit right down with the blues!
 
I'm gonna give myself a party, an' serve old memories
give my self a party, think of how it used to be
Remember all the happiness that once we knew
I'm gonna give myself a party, just me an' the blues!
 
. . . just me an' the blues!
