D    G    A7  Gdim  D    G    A7   G  Gdim       D
The par - ty's  o - ver, it's time to call it a day.

         G    A7  Gdim              D
They've burst your pret - ty bal - loon

    G   Gdim      D   G    D
And ta - ken the moon a - way.

DM7   D7     G6     Gdim                 DM7
It's time to wind up     the mas - que -rade;

 D6           C#m7-5   F#     F#7       B7  E7  A7
Just make your mind up    the pi - per must be paid.

D    G    A7  Gdim  D    G    A7   G    Gdim            D
The par - ty's o - ver, the can - dles flick - er and dim;

      G          A7     Gdim         D
You danced and dreamed through the night,

    G           Gdim        D        G    D
It seemed to be right just be - ing with him.

Now you must wake up; all dreams must end.

B7             Em    C7  A7      G    A7  DM7       Bm7
Take off your make - up,    the par - ty's o - ver,

        Em7       A7   D     Em7  Gdim  D
It's all o - ver, my friend.
