Three Dog Night

Three Dog Night is an American rock band best known for their music from 1968 to 1975. This highly successful vocal-centric rock band formed in 1968 with a lineup consisting of Danny Hutton, Cory Wells and Chuck Negron. The three lead singers were backed by Jimmy Greenspoon (organ), Joe Schermie (bass), Mike Allsup (guitar) and Floyd Sneed (drums). With their distinctive and sometimes extraordinary harmonic blend, the band registered an impressive 21 Billboard Top 40 hits (with three hitting number one) between 1969 and 1975. Their startling version of John Lennon and Paul McCartney’s ‘'It’s For You’' typified the band at their best, but it was their original arrangements of the work of lesser-known writers that brought welcome exposure and considerable royal… more »

Will you have whiskey with your water
Or sugar with your tea
What are these crazy questions
That they're asking of me
This is the craziest party
That there ever could be
Oh, don't turn on the light
'Cause I don't want to see

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
That ain't the way to have fun

Open up the window
Let some air into this room
I think I'm almost choking from
The smell of stale perfume
And that cigarette you're smoking
'Bout to scare me half to death
Open up the window sucka
Let me catch my breath

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
That ain't the way to have fun, son
That ain't the way to have fun, son

The radio is blasting,
Someone's beating on the door
I'm looking at my girlfriend
She's passed out on the floor
I seen so many things 
I ain't never seen before
I don't know what it is
But I don't wanna see no more

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
She said, that ain't the way to have fun, son

That ain't the way to have fun,

Mama told me, Mama told me, Mama told me
Told me, told me, 

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come

That ain't the way to have fun, no
That ain't the way to have fun, son

That ain't the way to have fun, no
That ain't the way to have fun, son

That ain't the way to have fun, no
That ain't the way to have fun, son

That ain't the way to have fun, no
That ain't the way to have fun, son
