It wasn't my intention to eavesdrop
But there a guy sat, two stools away
And you could tell the bartender knew him
And that he'd been there some other day
And while I sipped my libation
I overheard his conversation
Remember, how I'd walk in
What excitement there would be?
Never less than twenty people
I had lots of friends, you see
I gave the party, I was the host
Everyone loved me, I was the most
Champagne and plenty of it
Real imported caviar
And the hatcheck girl got fifty
Just for lighting my cigar
I kept 'em laughin', jokes by the yard
Everyone loved me, I was a card
And I had a girl, a beautiful girl, her whole world
I think, consisted of mink and diamonds and pearls
Because she was mine, I'd glitter and shine,
And life was a ball, and wasn't it all, so cozy 'n fine?
But nothing lasts forever and the deepest well runs dry
Just 'cause I've stopped rolling sevens doesn't mean I have to cry
I'll take that nightcap, one more won't show
And incidentally maybe you know where, oh, where, oh, where
Did everyone go?
Where, oh, where, oh, where
Did everyone go?
