The Party's Moving On

by Clive James and Pete Atkin

It's starting to thin out
The crowd have nearly all already gone
Any minute now he might be going with them
The party's moving on

There's room to move around
They've turned the music off, the lights back on
Anyone can get a drink now no-one wants one
The party's moving on

So many glasses that were used for ashtrays
So many ashtrays that were used for scraps
So many scraps of paper used for matches
So many here and now so few perhaps

I could be lucky yet
Maybe it's me his eye will light upon
Any minute now I might be going with him
The party's moving on
