Lyrics: On a bad breath morning you got to have an alibi
On a bad breath morning you got to know the reason why
We can't party like we used to, but we sure do try

But your life is gonna catch up with you about the break of day
When you got the baby cryin' and you got bills to pay
We can't party like we used to
Don't seem to stop us from tryin' anyway

Old age and taxes; just facts you can't deny
And you got the grim reaper waiting; there's a dude you don't deny
We can't party like we used to
Guess it don't hurt to try

Well, if it ain't broke don't fix it; least that's what they say
Well, if it ain't bad don't spank it; unless you happen to like it that way
We can't party like we used to
We can't party like we used to
We can't party like we used to
But we're gonna party just a little bit here today
About the Artist
Buddy Moncrief Buddy Moncrief

Somewhere out on New Route 66, about 50 miles west of Sinatra and 75 miles east of Tom Waits, Swanson struts his swingin' and singin'. He loves Dave Frishberg songs and Johnny Walker in a tumbler. He'd like to hear Kurt Elling cover Stone Temple Pilots. Lonnie Johnson is God.

On his latest full-length release "We Can't Party Like We Used To" (2009 Acoustic SwaneeLand), Swanson pounds out 12 original vocal jazz cuts with a cool retro vibe. His bluesy vocals and tasty guitar licks remind of crooners past and present - Sinatra, Cole, John Pizzarelli come to mind - but his clever songwriting has a leaner, edgier feel to it that puts him squarely in the current century.
