One Big Party - Francine Honey

One Big Party… A song celebrating friendship, reunions and the anticipation good times ahead.

And as we were all hunkered down at home, didn’t we all make plans for when we’d get together again?  I know I did!  I don’t know how many times I put an X on my calendar on the wall, only to have to erase it and move the X to another spot.  All of the text messages and anticipation of how much fun we are going to have.  I am still making those plans and all I know is that when we do get together it is going to be so wonderful to see my old friends.

I met Fabio at one of the songwriting meetings I hosted.  He has a certain style that I thought would suit a party song.  I asked him if he would write a song with me about the party we are all going to have with our friends once we able.   I was thinking in particular of my group of friends back home and to those X’s I had to move so many times on the calendar and what a party we are going to have.  “One Big Party” celebrates the anticipation of the fun time ahead reconnecting with friends round a fire and howling at the moon!   I can’t wait to be able to come to where you live and celebrate with you!  Who are you planning to reconnect with?

Song Lyrics

One Big Party
Francine Honey and Fabio Ingratta (SOCAN)

It’s been such a long time
Since I’ve seen those old friends of mine
Put an ‘X’ on the wall
Countdown is on
No one’s gettin’ left behind
It’s gonna be

Chorus:
One big party
Hometown. Stompin’ ground
Back together, Tight as ever
One big party
Round the fire, Getting higher
Howlin’ at the moon
It’s gonna be
One big miss ya’all, let’s have a ball down home party


Don’t it make you feel good
When your friends are blowin’ up your phone
Say they can’t wait to see ya
Makes you glad to be ya
I’m so ready to go
It’s gonna be

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
Raising cups to catchin’ up
With my true blue we-go-way-back crew
It’s gonna be 

Repeat Chorus

One big miss you all, let’s have a ball, full blown down home party
One big miss you all, let’s have a ball, down home party
