About Let's Have A Party

"Let's Have a Party" is a 1957 song written by Jessie Mae Robinson and recorded by Elvis Presley for the movie Loving You. Wanda Jackson recorded the song for her first album, Wanda Jackson, released in 1958. The song was released as a single by Jackson in 1960 and entered the UK chart on 1 September of that year, spending eight weeks there and reaching #32; it also reached #37 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1960. The Jackson version was later featured in the 1989 film Dead Poets Society. Paul McCartney also recorded and released the song (under the title "Party") on his 1999 Run Devil Run album. His original song "Run Devil Run", on the album of the same name, also has a similar melody. A cover of "Let's Have a Party" by Sonia was included on the 2010 remastered edition of her 1989 album Everybody Knows. The song was included under the title "Party" in the Broadway musical Million Dollar Quartet, which opened in New York in April 2010. It was sung by Robert Britton Lyons, portraying Carl Perkins, as well as by the company of the show, and was covered by Robert Britton Lyons and the company on the Million Dollar Quartet original Broadway cast recording. In T. Rex's 1972 concert film Born to Boogie, Marc Bolan and Ringo Starr attempt to recite one of the lyrics from the song ("some people like to rock, some people like to roll, but movin' and a-groovin's gonna satisfy my soul"). However, they break into laughter each time.

Some people like to rock, some people like to roll
But movin' and a-groovin's gonna satisfy my soul
Let's have a party
Hoo, let's have a party
Well, send 'im to the store, let's buy some more
Let's have a party tonight

I never kissed a bear, I never kissed a goon
But I can shake a chicken in the middle of the room
Let's have a party
Hoo, let's have a party
Well, send 'im to the store, let's buy some more
Let's have a party tonight

I never kissed a bear, I never kissed a goon
But I can shake a chicken in the middle of the room

Hoo, let's have a party
Well, send 'im to the store, let's buy some more
Let's have a party tonight

Honky-Tonky' Joe is knockin' at the door
Bring him in an' fill 'im up an' sit 'im on the floor
Let's have a party
Hoo, let's have a party
Well, send 'im to the store, let's buy some more
Let's have a party tonight

The meat is on the stove, the bread's a-gettin' hot
Everybody run, they got the possum in the pot
Let's have a party
Hoo, let's have a party
Well, send 'im to the store, let's buy some more
Let's have a party tonight
Let's have a party tonight
Let's have a party tonight
We're gonna have a party tonight
