Lyrics

Pavement Cocktail Party

The people don’t want to stay inside
On the sidewalk, they want to socialize
Tables pushed out in the street
Trays of drinks for cops on the beat
Waiters dodging shuffling feet
Looks like it’s a pavement cocktail party
The sidewalk’s hip
A crazy mix that can’t be fixed
A bash on the street
Under stars on concrete

The street’s a stage the car cats blow their horns
A modern jazz cacophony is born
A soundtrack that sets the tone
For meeting Jane for meeting John
Looks like it’s a pavement cocktail party
All walks of life
A heady blend that’ll never end
Of humanity
Sounds good to me

Can I have this dance?
It won’t disturb
Just be careful not to step off the curb

Parking meters like bystanders look on
Over concrete macadam or cobblestone
Towards the shops or out of clubs
For good times this place is the hub
Looks like it’s a pavement cocktail party
The sidewalk’s hip
A crazy mix that can’t be fixed
A bash on the street
Under stars on concrete

Can I have this dance?
It won’t disturb
Just be careful not to step off the curb

A pavement cocktail party
A pavement cocktail party
A pavement cocktail party
A pavement cocktail party

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
