This edit of the song has not yet been released. Lyrics provided below are based on the version appearing on “Madison Square Garden 09-28-1997“ released by Wolfgang’s Vault, and the final version appearing on The Joshua Tree 30th Anniversary Edition is expected to be a different edit, but based on the same starting material.

Yeah
There’s a word, I hear it all the time over here
What does it mean?
The word is party

I know a girl
A girl called Party
I know she wants more than a party
But she won’t tell me her name
Oh no, not even me
Oh
On bass guitar, Adam Clayton

I know a boy
A boy called Trash, Trash Can
I know he does all that he can, wham-bam
But he won’t tell me his name
Oh no, not even me

La-da-bi-do…etc.

When I was three
I thought the world revolved around me
I was wrong
And so I sing along
And if you dance, then dance with me

I know a girl
A girl called Party
I know she wants more than a party
I know a boy, a boy called Trampoline
You know what I mean
I think I know what he wants
I think I know what he wants
I think I know what he wants
