There’s a party over there
Don’t you want to go
There’s a party over there
Let’s stop and say hello
We’ll file past the patio
It’d probably be rude
If we didn’t pile up
Our plates high with some food
Let’s go and be sociable
For what would they think
If we didn’t have at least
One, two or three drinks
Let’s dance on the furniture
Let’s make this place a scene
Let’s sing hits from the 80s on
The Karaoke machine
Let’s go make a conga line
Let’s howl at the moon
Let’s make out with every single
Person in the room
Let’s hold court in the pantry
As if none could be finer
Break out the fancy silverware
And drink beer from the china
Let’s scream ‘Let there be anarchy!’
Til everyone’s excited
And run when they find we were not

Great pic to illustrate this one! I do find much humour in their worries about “being rude” when they are committing the greatest rudeness of all….party crashing!
Yes, definitely made to be ironic. As for the pic, just one of the wild and crazy guys!! This poem reminded me of that SNL skit!
At least they were game!!! Hahaha!
Oh absolutely! Wouldn’t have it any other way!
It’s like hiring a ‘host’!!!
Ha! Maybe they should have said that when they were getting kicked out…”We’re not crashing…we’re hosting!!”
Party crashers will always make me think of Owen Wilson 🙂
You know, I never saw that movie and really didn’t think about it when writing the poem…but now that you say it…well, hope it was a good movie!!
The movie was ok … but the poem was great 🙂
Sounds like a plan to me! I need something like this right now.
Ah, poor Sparrow! I bet you do!
Were you a party crasher, Marissa? 😉 That’s a great photo and brings back some fond memories of Martin and Akroyd.
I have crashed some parties in my time. I remember once when I was hanging out at a club and someone told me to go into the other room because Marilyn Manson was in there with Rose McGowan for her birthday party. We went in and saw them and Marilyn smiled at us (my sister and I). Then security came and asked us to leave!!
That’s fantastic! Too bad you didn’t get to party with them.
Yeah, well, whatever…a good story anyway!
Fun! I’m going to do this someday. Maybe one of those bloggers’ conventions?
Oh yeah, that would be fun! Steal a name tag…or make your own!
You wedding crasher you. 🙂
Wedding??? And me, without a gift!
They’re party crashers!!!! Is that Steve Martin in the bottom photo? 🙂
Yes, it is. It reminded me of the SNL skit he used to do ‘Wild and Crazy Guys’. I’m pretty sure that wasn’t actually from the skit but with licensing issues, it was the best I could do!
*giggling* Bringing memories of my WILD days, and oh yes, I had them. LOL Briliiant as ususal, Marissa. Great job! (((HUGS))) Amy
Thanks Amy…but you didn’t actually crash any parties…did you??
I plead the 5th. GRIN!
I think she did.
I can imagine that back in the day you might have yelled things about anarchy at parties.
I think you were at a few of those parties…no?
Not to cast judgement on the invited guests, but it sounds like everyone was kind of glad you showed up. 😉
Right, that’s what I think…not so much crashing as hosting.
Sounds like it needed a good host. 🙂
Oohhh. You gatecrasher, you. Such fun.
Yes, I’m evil!
I should know things are never as they seem. You got me.
Well, April, I do aim to add the zinger at the end, thanks!
Oh, yes, Marissa. I could use a Conga Line crash in my life right about now. 🙂 Haha! I love it. You know my past well.
Right, think I saw you at that party!!
I tried to latch onto you, but you were taken!
Well, all my fans you know.
That’s a great poem, all the fun those party crashers have!
Not that I would actually know!
That’s hilarious! I don’t know about party crashers, but in my wedding photography days, I’ve seen a few wedding crashers that were loads of fun when the couple figured out that neither of them knew the sneaks! 🙂
You must have some funny stories!! I once was at a club and was advised to walk into a VIP room there because Marilyn Manson and Rose McGowan were having a party there for her birthday. As soon as they saw us, they had us thrown out. And that’s probably the entirety of my party crashing ‘career’! Y
