The Lyrics

A merged parody, inspired, sort of, by John Barry's recent parody titled "Garden Party." Described herein are the events of "It's My Party," "Judy's Turn to Cry," and, quite possibly, Lesley Gore's actual mid-life, as seen from the perspective of "Johnny," the cheatin' boyfriend of those songs.
(instrumental opening)

I went to a birthday party
of Lesley, my girlfriend.
to dance to records all through the night
and kiss my girl again.

When Judy came into the party
she greeted me by name.
But she never heard the music.
She had a plan of shame.

But it's
all right now.
I learned my lesson well.
You see, you can't please all the girls
so you
got to please yourself.

People came from miles around.
Everyone was there.
But something weird was happening.
There was something in the air.

And over in the corner
much to my surprise
Peggy Sue and Mary Lou
gazed in each other's eyes.

But it's
all right now.
I learned my lesson well.
You see, you can't please all the girls
so you
got to please yourself.

La da-da, da.
La-da, da-da, da...

Lesley was my true girlfriend.
Thought that's why I came.
But Judy, well, she thrilled me.
My love is not the same.

Next week, another party.
Les kissed some other guy.
My jealousy got the better of me.
Still loved Les, that's why.

But it's
all right now.
I learned my lesson well.
You see, you can't please all the girls
so you
got to please yourself.

La da-da, da.
(La-da, da-da-da)
La-da, da-da, da...

Many years went by, and we split up.
But one day, I found it so good.
Lovin' a chick like a-ringin' a bell.
Got married like we should.

At her 40th birthday party
I wished Lesley good luck.
But if memory has served me well
it's by a gal she's stuck.

But it's
all right now.
I learned my lesson well.
You only need to please one girl
so as to please yourself.

La da-da, da.
La-da, da-da, da...

And it's
all right now.
I learned my lesson well.
You only need to please one girl
so as to please yourself.

(guitar close)
Anybody expecting a different word to end the last verse?
