Quotes[edit]

Songs[edit]

  • 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 ya can't please everyone
    So ya got to please yourself


    People came from miles around
    Everyone was there
    Yoko brought her walrus
    There was magic in the air
    N' 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, ya can't please everyone
    So ya got to please yourself
    . . .
