Song Lyrics #1: Has-been Party

I dreamed I had a has-been party / Everyone was there / Mason Reese and Donna Rice / And the Flock of Seagulls guy / You know, the guy with the hair

Everyone drank / To each other’s comeback attempt / You were never a star / So don’t rag on them

I dreamed I had a has-been party / Everyone was there / Stacey Q and Mr. T / And Monica Lewinsky / Oh, and don’t forget Liz Phair

Everyone drank / To each other’s reality show / You don’t have one / Which means your life blows

Why can’t I dream about bananas / Or a night in Havana?

But no, I had to dream about a has-been party
