Come To a Party

[BIRDLACE, spoken]
Well, I better shove off soon. I gotta get to a party.
Say, maybe you'd like to go with me.
[ROSE, spoken]
A party?
Oh well, I—
[BIRDLACE, spoken]
If you don't wanna go, just say so.
[ROSE, spoken]
Well—it's just—I mean, I just met you.
Well, you know my birthday now
Showed you my middle name
See, I'm an open book, have a look
This ain't no pickup game
I heard your pretty voice
Then we saw eye to eye
On all that music stuff, not on fluff
We didn't have to try
Now isn't that rare?
That kind of connection
So why not come to a party with me?
Why not come to this party?
A five piece band,
I'll take your hand, Rose
And twirl you around
Buy you a drink,
Don't stop to think,
Say "Yes"
Come to a party with me,
Just say "Yes"
[ROSE, spoken]
I dunno, Eddie
[BIRDLACE, spoken]
My old man's always saying, you can't steal second base with your foot on first. Sometimes you gotta gamble, Rose. You can bet on me.
Born in Buffalo
To humble Christian folks
My old man raised me right, real polite,
No tellin' dirty jokes
A Wallly Cleaver type
Ate every brussels sprout
My mama's pride 'n joy, golden boy
Your av'rage Eagle Scout
Now look in these eyes,
They ain't gonna hurt you
So why not come to this party with me?
C'mon, it's just a party
A great excuse
To cut it loose, Rose
And do whatcha feel
Just for a night,
No holdin' tight,
Let go
Let's go
Come to a party with me
Gonna be a real nice time, c'mon, whaddaya say?
If I go
Well, ya know,
Ma would be here on her own
She would die,
I could lie
I couldn't lie to my—
If I go
She would know
Look, I'm not ready
We're closing,
And Eddie,
I've still gotta work,
C'mon don't be a jerk
Give it back, Eddie stop!
Look, I still gotta mop,
Plus I don't really drink
See I really don't think I can come
Come to this party with me
Look, you can't miss this party
I can't just get up and go
You'll meet my friends,
And when it ends, Rose,
I'll race ya right home
Mama needs me around
Or why cap the night?
We'll go grab a bite,
I'd like to, but I...
Table for two,
Just me and you,
(Eddie, c'mon)
Candles and wine,
(I got work to do! Please!)
Hands intertwine—
It's closing time now. Better run along.
You'll miss out on one helluva time,
Should be one rousin' party
Well, I'm glad we met
I gotta get, Rose,
But gosh you seem swell
Still, it's a shame I thought,
If you came, who knows,
Maybe we coulda—
Have a good night now.
[ROSE, spoken]
Eddie, wait! I'm going with you, okay?
Just lemme run upstairs and change.
[BIRDLACE, spoken]
[ROSE, spoken]
What a gem,
What a pick in a pinch
What a girl for this party
You'll waltz her in
You're set to win
Once ya twirl her around
She'll be a smash
Score ya some cash
Off to a party with you
