Garden Party

Song Author Ricky Nelson Performer: Ricky Nelson Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]I went to a garden [F]party to [C]reminisce with my old [F]friends
A [C]chance to [G7]share old [Am]memories [F]and play our [G7]songs a[C]gain
When I got to the garden [F]party [C]they all knew my [F]name
No [C]one recognized [F]me I didn't [G7]look the [C]same

But it's [F]all [G7]right [C]now  
I [F]learned my [G7]lesson [C]well
You see you [F]can't please [C]everyone
So [F]you got [G7]to please [C]yourself
[F]La [G7]la [C]la la [F]la la [G7]la la

[C]People came from [F]miles a[C]round everyone was [F]there
Yoko [C]brought her [G7]walrus [Am]there [F]was magic [G7]in the [C]air  
And over in the [F]corner [C]much to my sur[F]prise
Mr. [C]Hughes hid in [F]Dylan's shoes [G7]wearing his [C]disguise

But it's [F]all [G7]right [C]now  
I [F]learned my [G7]lesson [C]well
You see you [F]can't please [C]everyone
So [F]you got [G7]to please [C]yourself
[F]La [G7]la [C]la la [F]la la [G7]la la

[C]Played them all the [F]old songs [C]thought that's why they [F]came
No [C]one heard [G7]the music [Am]we didn't [F]look [G7]the    [C]same
I said hello to [F]Mary Lou [C]she belongs to [F]me  
When [C]I sang a song about a [F]honky-tonk it was [G7]time to [C]leave

But it's [F]all [G7]right [C]now  
I [F]learned my [G7]lesson [C]well
You see you [F]can't please [C]everyone
So [F]you got [G7]to please [C]yourself
[F]La [G7]la [C]la la [F]la la [G7]la la

[C]Someone opened up a closet [F]door and out [C]stepped Johnny B. [F]Goode
Playing [C]guitar like a [G7]ringing a [Am]bell and [F]looking [G7]like he [C]should
If you gotta play at [F]garden parties [C]I wish you a lotta [F]luck
But [C]if memories were all I [F]sang I rather [G7]drive a [C]truck

But it's [F]all [G7]right [C]now  
I [F]learned my [G7]lesson [C]well
You see you [F]can't please [C]everyone
So [F]you got [G7]to please [C]yourself
[F]La [G7]la [C]la la [F]la la [G7]la la

I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends
A chance to share old memories and play our songs again
When I got to the garden party they all knew my name
No one recognized me I didn't look the same

But it's all right now
I learned my lesson well
You see you can't please everyone
So you got to please yourself
La la la la la la la la

People came from miles around everyone was there
Yoko brought her walrus there was magic in the air
And over in the corner much to my surprise
Mr. Hughes hid in Dylan's shoes wearing his disguise

But it's all right now
I learned my lesson well
You see you can't please everyone
So you got to please yourself
La la la la la la la la

Played them all the old songs thought that's why they came
No one heard the music we didn't look the same
I said hello to Mary Lou she belongs to me
When I sang a song about a honky-tonk it was time to leave

But it's all right now
I learned my lesson well
You see you can't please everyone
So you got to please yourself
La la la la la la la la

Someone opened up a closet door and out stepped Johnny B. Goode
Playing guitar like a ringing a bell and looking like he should
If you gotta play at garden parties I wish you a lotta luck
But if memories were all I sang I rather drive a truck

But it's all right now
I learned my lesson well
You see you can't please everyone
So you got to please yourself
La la la la la la la la
