Lyrics[]

The Rural version[]

Motel 6, sloe gin fizz
Swingin' in the lobby, do the sunset twist
I can do it, you can do it, move them hips
Come on, everybody, get dangerous

Fellers, if you wanna get that invite quicker
Pack up the pickup, pick up the liquor
Go on, use your charm, so, come on, gonna get her
It's about time

Ladies, if you really wanna rein them suckers
Line up your lips, plump up your puckers
It's about the only way to get them motherfuckers
To do what you want to

It's a party, it's a party
We're so naughty, come on, Johnny
Do it, do it, do it, come on
It's a party, it's a party
That we started, come on, Johnny
Maybe this is where we belong

Motel 6, you're so sick
Swingin' from the ceiling like our frontman, Rick
Show a little skin for my Polaroid pic
Promise I won't show your little girlfriend this

Ladies, if you really wanna know my secret
Come a little closer, kitty, promise you'll keep it
Come a little nearer, dear, you gonna need it
Gonna tell you

It's a party, it's a party
We're so naughty, come on, Johnny
Do it, do it, do it, come on
It's a party, it's a party
That we started, come on, Johnny
Maybe this is where we belong

Maybe we can go to the 7-Eleven
Drive down the main drag in your Pontiac heaven
You can drink and drive, whatever you want to
We'll get right down to it, me and you, boo

We're layin' on the hood like it's a flatbed truck
In the spotlight, we see Jim and Chuck
Saw their car from a mile away and it's slowin'
They say that there's a motel dance, let's get goin'

It's a party, it's a party
We're so naughty, come on, Johnny
Do it, do it, do it, come on
It's a party, it's a party
That we started, come on, Johnny
Maybe this is where we belong

It's a party, it's a party
We're so naughty, come on, Johnny
Do it, do it, do it, come on
It's a party, it's a party
That we started, come on, Johnny
Maybe this is where we belong

Motel 6, drive-in flicks
Ladies in their black cars, bras, and kicks
Baby's at the sitter's and we're gettin' ouor fix
Keepin' it, keepin' it glamorous

It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, c-c-come on
It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, c-c-come on

Swingin' in the lobby, do the sunset twist
I can do it, you can do it, move them hips
Everybody, let's get dangerous

Go on, use your charm, right, come on, gonna get her
Gonna tell you

Ladies, if you really wanna rein them suckers
Line up your lips, plump up your puckers
It's about the only way to get them motherfuckers
To do what you want

It's a party, it’s a party

Baby, if you really wanna know my secret
Come a little closer, kitty, promise you'll keep it
Come a little nearer, dear, you're gonna need it
Gonna tell you

Men like a woman who just don't need 'em
Sweeter than cherry pie and we'll treat 'em
Meaner than dirt, they deserve to be hurt
'Til they realize what you're worth

It's a party, it’s a party
It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, c-c-come on
It's a party, it’s a party
It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, c-c-come on

Maybe we can go down to 7-Eleven
Drive down the drag in your Pontiac heaven
Baby, you can buy me Diet Mountain Dew
And we'll get right down to it, me and you

Layin' on your hood like a flatbed truck
In the spotlight, we see Jim and Chuck
We saw their car from a mile away and it's slowin'
"They say there's a motel dance, let's get goin'."

It's a party, it’s a party
It's a party, it's a party
It's a party, c-c-come on
It's a party, it’s a party
It's a party, it's a party

I can do it, you can do it, move them hips
Everybody, let's get dangerous

Fellas, if you wanna get the invite quicker
Pack up the pickup and pick up the liquor

Line up them lips and plump up them puckers
Baby, that's the only way to get them motherfuckers
To do what you want to

Baby, if you really wanna know my secret
Come a little closer, kitty, promise you'll keep it
Near, a little nearer there, whisper you need it
Under the fairy lights

Men'll like a woman who just don't need 'em
Sweeter than cherry pie but we'll treat 'em
Meaner than dirt, they deserve to be hurt
'Til they realize what you're worth, worth, worth (ah)

It's a party, c-c-come on
It's a party, it's a party
