I Don't Want To Spoil The Party
(Lennon/McCartney)
Recorded by Don Duggan & The Savoys
1970 - Pye 7N17874 / Lodi

I don't want to spoil the party so I'll go,
I would hate my disappointment to show,
There's nothing for me here so I will disappear,
If she turns up while I'm gone please let me know.

I've had a drink or two and I don't care,
There's no fun in what I do if she's not there,
I wonder what went wrong I've waited far too long,
I think I'll take a walk and look for her.

Though tonight she's made me sad,
I still love her,
If I find her I'll be glad,
I still love her.

I don't want to spoil the party so I'll go,
I would hate my disappointment to show,
There's nothing for me here so I will disappear,
If she turns up while I'm gone please let me know.

Repeat from 'Though tonight.....'
(Original recording by The Beatles on the album 'Beatles For Sale' 1964)
