   I Don't Want To Spoil The Party
by John T. Marck



I Don't Want To Spoil The Party

On the surface, this is another of Lennon's relationship related self-pity songs about a guy who was stood up by his date, but more importantly, that flown beneath his mask. It's not so much the loss of the girl, which after a few drinks he can cope with, but his inability to act as though he's happy. Actually, it has another similar meaning. At this time, with their busy schedules, The Beatles were always hounded by the press, or city dignitaries or record executives, and the like. Lennon hated meeting with these types of people, but, for the sake of the other Beatles' he acted as though he enjoyed these times during these interviews so as not to spoil it for the other three. He knew that if he let his true feelings show, he would ruin it for the others. John wrote this song during The Beatles brief two show visit to America in February 1964, where they played in Washington, D.C. and New York to help promote "I Want To Hold Your Hand." John said that this song was a very personal one, inspired because of his fear of having to be happy at all times in front of these people, when he wasn't. The Beatles recorded this on September 29, 1964.

I don't want to spoil the party so I'll go,

I would hate my disappointment to show

There's nothing for me here,

so I will disappear

If she turns up while I'm gone,

please let me know

I've had a drink or two and I don't care,

there's no fun in what I do if she's not there

I wonder what went wrong,

I've waited far too long

I think I'll take a walk and look for her

Though tonight she's made me sad,

I still love her

If I find her I'll be glad,

I still love her

I don't want to spoil the party so I'll go,

I would hate my disappointment to show

There's nothing for me here,

so I will disappear

If she turns up while I'm gone,

please let me know

Though tonight she's made me sad,

I still love her

If I find her I'll be glad,

I still love her

I've had a drink or two and I don't care,

there's no fun in what I do if she's not there

I wonder what went wrong,

I've waited far too long

I think I'll take a walk and look for her
