It's My Party
Lesley Gore Lyrics


It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Nobody knows where my Johnny has gone
But Judy left the same time
Why was he holding her hand
When he's supposed to be mine

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Playin' my records, keep dancin' all night
But leave me alone for a while
Till Johnny's dancin' with me
I've got no reason to smile

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Judy and Johnny just walked through the door
Like a queen with her king
Oh what a birthday surprise
Judy's wearin' his ring

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Oh it's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to

Lesley version:
It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to!
Cry if I want to!
Cry if I want to!
You would cry too if it happened to you!

Melanie version:
It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to!
Cry if I want to! Cry,cry,cry
I’ll cry until the candles burn down this place!
I’ll cry until my pity party is in flames!

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to
Cry if I want to
You would cry too, if it happened to you
Nobody knows where my Johnny has gone
But Judy left the same time
Why was he holding her hand
When he's supposed to be mine?
It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to
Cry if I want to
You would cry too, if it happened to you
Play all my records, keep dancing all night
But leave me alone for awhile
'Til Johnny's dancing with me
I've got no reason to smile
It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to
Cry if I want to
You would cry too, if it happened to you
Judy and Johnny just walked through the door (walked through the door)
Like a queen with her king
Oh, what a birthday surprise
Judy's wearing his ring
It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to
Cry if I want to
You would cry too, if it happened to you
Oh, it's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to
Cry if I want to
You would cry too, if it happened to you
It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to

It's my 40th coming up, and I'll cry if I want to.

Cry if I want to.

Cry if I want to.

I miss my Dearest Mother so much, and unlike my 30th birthday, my Dearest Mother is not with me physically to celebrate my 40th.

I miss her, damn it.

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Nobody knows where my Johnny has gone
But Judy left the same time
Why was he holding her hand
When he's supposed to be mine

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Playin' my records, keep dancin' all night
But leave me alone for a while
Till Johnny's dancin' with me
I've got no reason to smile

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Judy and Johnny just walked through the door
Like a queen with her king
Oh what a birthday surprise
Judy's wearin' his ring

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Oh it's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to

Okay I was wondering lol

•Soft_angel _milk•

A lot of artists do this

Thegamblinggambit

Y’all are fucking stupid in the reply section. She bought out the single and credited the original creator very clearly multiple times meaning she has the right to sample the song without being bashed for no reason. Don’t talk shit if you don’t know shit.

Fun fact! In Melanie Martinez's Pity Party (inspired by this song) she included Lesley Gore singing it's my party and I'll cry if I want to underneath her singing.

Space Door

Fun fact: Melanie sampled this song and that’s pretty much general knowledge.
