If You’re Late to the Party invites everyone who arrives late to “get out there and dance.” I could either bemoan not discovering songwriting until midlife or “go take (my) chance.”

Lyrics

If you’re late to the party, get out there and dance
If you’re late to the party, get out there and dance
If you’re late to the party, get out there and dance
You’ve got something to say

When you’re late to the party, go take your chance
When you’re late to the party, go take your chance
When you’re late to the party, go take your chance
Don’t stand in your own way

If you missed the bell, you’ve got stories to tell
Go mine the well of desire

If you’re late to the soiree, get out there and dance
If you’re late to the soiree, get out there and dance
If you’re late to the soiree, get out there and dance
Demand your fears give way

Don’t bench yourself; let the sidelines call
Go grab your ball of fire

When you’re late to the party, go take your chance
When you’re late to the party, go take your chance
When you’re late to the party, go take your chance
You’ve got something
You’ve still got something
Oh, you’ve got something to say
