1976 (Another Jule Styne song Classic, 'The Party's Over' which was written for the 1955 musical, 'Bells Are Ringing'. Shirley Bassey gives a powerful performance of this song on her 1976 TV Variety Show, and during her early concert years Bassey used to close her show with this song. Many will recognize Jule Styne's work for writing much of the music to the movie, 'Funny Girl' starring the wonderful Barbra Streisand. Barbra won her first academy award (Oscar) for her protrayal of Fanny Brice in this movie back in 1968)

LYRICS:
The party's over
It's time to call it a day
They've burst your pretty balloon
And taken the moon away
It's time to wind up
The masquerade
Just make your mind up
The piper must be paid
The party's over
The candles flicker and dim
You danced and dreamed through the night
It seemed to be right
Just being with him
Now you must wake up
All dreams must end
Take off your makeup
The party's over
It's all over
My friend

You danced and dreamed through the night
It seemed to be right
Just being with him
Now you must wake up
All dreams must end
Take off your makeup
The party's over
It's all over
My friend
