Could've been the whiskey, might've been the gin
Could've been the three or four six-packs, I don't know but look at the mess I'm in, 
                  Bb                          F
My head is like a football, I think I'm gonna die
         C                              F
Tell me, me oh, me oh my. Wasn't that a party?

Someone took a grapefruit, wore it like a hat
I saw someone under my kitchen table talking to my old tom cat
They were talking about hockey, the cat was talking back
Long about then everything went black. Wasn't that a party?

                      Bb                       F
I'm sure it's just my memory playing tricks on me
      G                                               C
But I think I saw my buddy cutting down my neighbor's tree

Could've been the whiskey, might've been the gin
Could've been the three or four six-packs, I don't know but look at the mess I'm in, 
My head is like a football, I think I'm gonna die
Tell me, me oh, me oh my. Wasn't that a party?

Billy Joe and Tommy, well, they went a little far
They were sitting in the back yard, blowing on a siren from somebody's police car

So you see, Your Honour, it was all in fun
The little bitty track meet down on Main Street was just to see if the cops could run
Well they run us in to see you in an alcoholic haze
I sure can use those thirty days to recover from the party

                  G
Could've been the whiskey, might've been the gin
Could've been the three or four six-packs, I don't know but look at the mess I'm in, 
                  C                           G
My head is like a football, I think I'm gonna die
         D                              G
Tell me, me oh, me oh my. Wasn't that a party?

Could've been the whiskey, might've been the gin
Could've been the three or four six-packs, I don't know but look at the mess I'm in, 
My head is like a football, I think I'm gonna die
Tell me, me oh, me oh my. Wasn't that a party?
Wasn't that a party? (repeat and fade)
