lyrics

You Invited Me (B-Day Version)
Written by Skafish in 1976

Such a nice birthday party
Such a nice home
So many nice pieces of furniture
So many nice people
I tried to warn you
But now I blame you
It’s your fault ‘cause you invited me

Please will you show me through your house?
Yes I’ll pretend I’m not a louse
I got my eye on all your things
All of the doom I’m gonna bring
Yes I will ruin your life
Then I will wreck your time
Then I will know your party flopped
Drag for your friends, hostess

You are a dope
You didn’t know what I would do
You invited me
I’m gonna wreck it for you

Oh yes I see everyone is nice
So I will give them lots of lice
Then I will wreck your fancy furniture
Then I will wreck your fancy living style
Then I will sign your death
Then you will lose your breath
Then I will know your party flopped
Drag for your friends, hostess

You are a dope
You didn’t know what I would do
You invited me
I’m gonna wreck it for you

(Ewh) I see we have a party
(Ewh) We’re gonna have some fun now
(Ewh) I’m gonna put your lights out
(Ewh) We’re gonna put your lights out

Little baby come to me - oh!
You are a dope
You didn’t know what I would do
You invited me
I’m gonna wreck it for you

Oh I see everyone is curved
Oh I love the bodies with the curves
Oh yes I see everyone is nice
You won’t want my lice
I’m gonna dance and crash
All of your lamps go bash
All of your crystal gets a zing
Drag for your friends, hostess

You are a dope
You didn’t know what I would do
You invited me
I’m gonna wreck it for you

(Ewh) I see we have a party
(Ewh) We’re gonna have some fun now
(Ewh) We’re gonna wreck your lights now
(Ewh) You’re gonna get shorted

Little baby come to me - oh!
You are a dope
You didn’t know what I would do
You invited me
I’m gonna wreck it for you c’mon

Oh li-little baby you’re so cute
Oh little baby I love you
Little baby sleeping soundly I love you
I want you
You want me
I love you and you’re small
And I’m big and you’re small
Let’s have fun
Let’s have fun oh right now - oh!

You are a dope
You didn’t know what I would do
You invited me
I’m gonna wreck it for you
Yeah you are a dope
You didn’t know what I would do
You invited me
I’m gonna wreck it for you
Yeah you are a dope
You didn’t know what I would do
You invited me
I’m gonna wreck it for you
Yeah you are a dope
You didn’t know what I would do
You invited me
I’m gonna wreck it for you

It’s your fault - it’s your fault
You invited me
It’s your fault you invited me
