Lyrics

The Party Song (Life Is a Party)

Written By: Patrick Lee

Party Like it's 2009.

Come on, let's celebrate!
Let's party, party
have a party, party
Throw a party, party (come & join the party)
Have a party, party (throw your hands in the air and wave!)
Party, party
Have a party, party
Throw a party, party
let's party, party

V1: We worked ourselves to the limit
with seemingly no time for fun.
Let's turn these minutes around
a fever concept has just begun (yes!)

There's no need to worry
everything will be allright.
When we go out we'll head out
to dance on the floor tonight

C: It's time to party, party
everybody party, party
let's party party, valid when you're all around.

V2: The night is getting longer
things start to get more hectic.
Everybody's getting down to the jump around
sweating in the state of electric .(it's electric)
Are you awesomely ready to feel the flashing lights and heat?
Hey Mr. DJ's spinning all the discs with a driving beat and

C: I'm in a mood to party
everybody party, party
let's party party, valid when everyone's around!

V3: Hey it's almost over and it isn't meant to last
But with what's left of the night
let's have a bigger bigger blast
Have a toast, singalong
to the songs played by the band
Make the most of the time being while we still can!

C: It's a great big party (yeah it's a party!)
Life is a party
Life is a party valid while it's still around!
It's a great big party (yeah it's a party!)
Life is a party
Life is a party valid while it's still around!

Post-C: Life is a party so party party hearty
Life is a party so party party hearty
Life is a party so party party hearty
Life is a party so party party hearty (Repeat till the party ends)

Ran out of time, it's over now!
(Ad libs)

Drive Me Up

Written By: Patrick Lee

This song's about being driven - hope you'll get the drive at the end of this song
La la le la la la la, yeah yeah yeah
La la le la la la la, yeah yeah yeah
La la le la la la la, yeah yeah yeah
La la le la la la la, yeah yeah yeah
Take me for a ride, take me for a spin
take me to a place where I've never been.
Start the engine, turn the ignition key
hit the road, turn up the beat on the radio and

Drive me up
Move a whole lot faster
Drive me up
Step on the accelerator
Drive me up
Take me to a place where we can be together
Drive me up
My heart beats faster
Drive Me Up
push way way further
Drive me up, drive me up, drive me up up up!

Whoa whoa, yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah baby!
Get onto the highway, get onto the ramp
get onto the traffic away from the jam
Merge onto the passing lane
Beyond the speed limit
So we can be free to get with it (kiss me baby!) and

Drive me up
Move a whole lot faster
Drive me up
step on the accelerator
Drive me up
Take me to a place where we can be together
Drive Me Up
My heart beats faster
Drive me up
push way way further
Drive me up, drive me up, drive me up up up!
Drive me up
Move a whole lot faster, step on the accelerator
take me to a place where we can be together.
My heart beats faster, push way way further
Drive me up, drive me up, drive me up up up!

(Break it down)
(Drive Break): Drive me up to the movie show
Drive me up, get it going going
Drive me up to the movie show
Drive me up

Whoa! Drive me up to the place where we can be
where you can love me down from A to Z.
Gonna spin like a wheel all three sixty degrees
Drive me up with just you and me!

Drive me up, drive me up, drive me up, drive me up
Drive me up, drive me up, drive me up, drive me up
Drive me up, drive me up, drive me up, drive me up
Drive me up, drive me up, drive me up, drive me up
Drive me up, drive me up, drive me up, drive me up

Drive me up (repeat until the song ends)

Still going - they keep going and going and going

Love Will Lead the Way

Written By: Patrick Lee

I’ve been walking down
lost on that long and winding road.
After daydreaming of your face
I now know where to go

’Cause your love will lead the way
The way back, the way back
Back home to you
Love will lead the way
the way back home to you.

I’ve been wandering through these woods
with a map and a compass at hand.
The needle pointed to the direction
that will take me across this land (Oh)

It’s your love that will lead the way
The way back, the way back
Back home to you
Love will lead the way
the way back home to you.

Like a boomerang thrown
into the wide open field
Like a river flowing
into the bay
I can feel your love
coming back to me
and it will guide me all the way (Go!)

Love will lead the way, Love will lead all the way, etc. (Ad libs)
