About Partytime

"Partytime" is a song by 45 Grave, released as the B-side to the "School's Out" single in 1984. The song was taken from their debut album, Sleep in Safety. However, the single version, dubbed "Partytime (The Story of Sabine)", is shorter in length and notably heavier, with more smoothly flowing lyrics and a shorter introduction. This single version was included on the 1993 reissue of Sleep in Safety. "Partytime" is probably 45 Grave's most well-known song, having been used as the theme song to the 1985 film The Return of the Living Dead and featured on the soundtrack. This "Zombie Version" was shorter and heavier than both previous versions of the song, and eschewed the story of the previous versions. Another version, featured on compilations Autopsy, Debasement Tapes and A Devil's Possessions, has a different vocal melody and is introduced with laughter and different lyrics. The A-side, "School's Out," a cover of the Alice Cooper song of the same name, was featured as a bonus track on the re-released version of Sleep in Safety. This version differs little from Cooper's original, but makes use of keyboards.

Oh, she never had a chance
Oh, she was only five years old
Pity the poor darling now
Oh, she never had a chance
Death come quick
For a girl
Victim of a homicide
Cut and beaten
Brutally raped
The five year old
Didn't escape
Her mom and friend
Did her in
Cigarette burns
On her arms
From her mom and her friend
He had a whip
To hit her again
Do you want to party?
It's partytime
We gotta party, it's partytime!
Oh, she never had a chance

Oh, she was only five years old
She was unaware
Oh, she never had a chance
Her grand mother
Was sent to jail
Except Veronica
Her older sister
She wasn't loved
For a dime
Where ever she is
It's partytime
Do you want to party? (it's partytime)
We gotta party (it's partytime)
Do you want to party? (it's partytime)
We gotta party (it's partytime)
It's partytime
It's partytime
It's partytime
It's partytime

45 Grave

45 Grave are an American gothic and punk rock band from Los Angeles, California formed in 1979. The original group broke up in 1985 but vocalist Dinah Cancer subsequently revived the band. 45 Grave are noted as one of the first bands to mix punk rock with horror-themed lyrics, thereby positioning them as progenitors of the horror punk subgenre. Their unique appearance and morbid theatricality also distinguished them as innovators of goth rock as well as "deathrock," a term used to identify a subgenre of punk rock incorporating horror elements and spooky atmospherics. more »
