The Party's Moving On

It's starting to thin out
The crowd have nearly all already gone
Any minute now he might be going with them
The party's moving on

There's room to move around
They've turned the music off, the lights back on
Anyone can get a drink now no-one wants one
The party's moving on

     So many glasses that were used for ashtrays
     So many ashtrays that were used for scraps
     So many scraps of paper used for matches
     So many here and now so few perhaps

I could be lucky yet
Maybe it's me his eye will light upon
Any minute now I might be going with him
The party's moving on
