Well, it's hard to watch a party
When you're the only one who's feeling bad
People watch you out of the corner of their eyes when they laugh
Still, I wish all the best for you
Carry on as long as you want to

But if you're dancin' on the bar
Try not to kick over this bottle
Hey, if you're dancin' on the bar
Try not to kick over this bottle
I'm not as happy as you are
And I'm just trying to get through to tomorrow
She upped and left 'fore I could think
Of all the reasons that she shouldn't ought to

So if you're dancin' on the bar
Try not to kick over this bottle
And there was a time not long ago
When I'd be right up there with you
I'd be singin' and dancin'
And carryin' on the whole night through
And there was a time not long ago

Though now it's so hard to believe
That I wouldn't be alone, you know
She'd be right up there with me

So, if you're dancin' on the bar
Try not to kick over this bottle
I'm not as happy as you are
And I'm just tryin' to get through to tomorrow
She upped and left 'fore I could think
Of all the reasons that she shouldn't ought to
So if you're dancin' on the bar
Try not to kick over this bottle

She upped and left 'fore I could think
Of all the reasons that she shouldn't ought to
So if you're dancin' on the bar
Try not to kick over this bottle
Yeah, if you're dancin' on the bar
Try not to kick over this bottle
