let's hang with the nice people

lyrics

Let's have friends around for dinner, it's ages since we did
show off our renovations, and our high-achieving kids
perhaps we'll get Samantha, to play the violin
and have George recite soliloquies from one of those nice Shakespearian plays he's in.

Let’s have friends around for dinner, open something nice
perhaps that pinot noir from Central you got Sam to sign
remember how we had to chase him down and ask him twice
We’ll talk holiday destinations and play our world CDs
like the one we stole from that obscure and starving gypsy band we found in Greece, or was it Nice

Lets have friends around for dinner, open up our home
let everybody know we’re Party Central there’s no point in being hip and fascinating on our own

Let’s have friends around for dinner, select them carefully
perhaps that couple from the yacht club, I see she drives a Porsche, and he’s director of a finance company
they’re just back from Honolulu, they’re not short of a bob
She says avoiding penniless investors has become a full time job

Let’s have friends around for dinner, share some joie de vie
we can always use that story about your Mother being ill if we encounter unexpected incompatibility
cos they might not be from Auckland, so we’ll be sympathetic but aloof
make out that we’re concerned about our housing prices climbing through the roof.
