Post related to music.

There's a party going on right here 
Just dance around and don't stop 
Over there I see my dear 
Let's make some corn and make it pop 
Everybody is filled with cheer 
Let's get some chips and quac 

We've got noise makers 
and my locker shakers 
It's Friday Night 
Let this party shine 
It's party time!
