Has-been Party

I dreamed I had a has-been party
Everyone was there
Mason Reese and Donna Rice
And the Flock of Seagulls guy
You know, the guy with the hair

Everyone drank
To each other’s comeback attempt
You were never a star
So don’t rag on them

I dreamed I had a has-been party
Everyone was there
Stacey Q and Mr. T
And Monica Lewinsky
Oh, and don’t forget Liz Phair

Everyone drank
To each other’s reality show
You don’t have one
Which means your life blows

Why can’t I dream about bananas
Or a night in Havana?

But no, I had to dream about a has-been party
