Song Meaning
Verse 1
I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends
A chance to share old memories and play our songs again
When i got to the garden party, they all knew my name
No one recognized me, i didn't look the same
Verse 2
[Chorus]
Verse 3
But it's all right now, i learned my lesson well.
You see, ya can't please everyone, so ya got to please yourself
Verse 4
People came from miles around, everyone was there
Yoko brought her walrus, there was magic in the air
'n' over in the corner, much to my surprise
Mr. Hughes hid in dylan's shoes wearing his disguise
Verse 5
[Chorus]
Verse 6
Lott-in-dah-dah-dah, lot-in-dah-dah-dah
Played them all the old songs, thought that's why they came
No one heard the music, we didn't look the same
I said hello to "mary lou", she belongs to me
When i sang a song about a honky-tonk, it was time to leave
Verse 7
[Chorus]
Verse 8
Lot-dah-dah-dah (lot-dah-dah-dah)
Lot-in-dah-dah-dah
Verse 9
Someone opened up a closet door and out stepped johnny b. goode
Playing guitar like a-ringin' a bell and lookin' like he should
If you gotta play at garden parties, i wish you a lotta luck
But if memories were all i sang, i rather drive a truck
Verse 10
[Chorus]
Verse 11
Lot-dah-dah-dah (lot-dah-dah-dah)
Lot-in-dah-dah-dah
Verse 12
'n' it's all right now, learned my lesson well
You see, ya can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself
