Lyrics
Aretha:
The party’s over
It’s time to call it a day
They’ve burst your pretty balloon
And taken the moon away, yeah

Tom:
It’s time to wind up this masquerade
Just make your mind up, the piper must be paid

Aretha:
Party’s over, yeah
The candles flicker and dim

Tom:
You danced and dreamed through the night  (Yes I did)
It seemed to be right just being with him
Now you must wake up
All dreams must end
Oh, take off your makeup

Aretha:
The party’s over, yeah, yeah

Tom:
Well, It’s all over

Aretha:
Yes it is, my friend

Tom:
My friend

Català – S’ha Acabat La Festa
Aretha:
S’ha acabat la festa
És hora de parar
Han explotat el teu preciós globus
I s’han endut lluny la lluna, sí

Tom:
És hora d’acabar aquesta farsa
Simplement, anima’t, qui la fa la paga

Aretha:
S’ha acabat la festa, sí
El tènue pampallugeig de les espelmes

Tom:
Vas ballar i somniar tota la nit  (Sí que ho vaig fer)
Semblava estar bé, senzillament, estar amb ell
Ara cal que despertis
Tots els somnis han d’acabar
Oh, treu-te el maquillatge

Aretha:
La festa ha acabat, sí, sí

Tom:
Bé, s’ha acabat tot

Aretha:
Sí, amic meu

Tom:
Amiga meva
