We Like To Party



We Like To Party

I've got somethin' to tell ya, 
I've got news for you, 
Gonna put some wheels in motion, 
Get ready cause we're comin' through. 
Hey now Hey now Hear what I say now 
Happiness is just around the corner 
Hey now Hey now Hear what I say now 
We'll be there for you 

The Venga bus is comin' & everybody's jumpin', 
New York through San Francisco, 
An Interstate free disco, 
The wheels of steel are turnin' and traffic lights are burnin', 
So if you like to party, 
Get on and move your body

We like to party 
We like we like to party 
We like to party 
We like we like to party 

Hey now hey now hear what I say now 
Happiness is just around the corner 
Hey now hey now hear what I say now 
We'll be there for you 

The Venga bus is comin' & everybody's jumpin', 
New York through San Francisco, 
An Interstate free disco, 
The wheels of steel are turnin' and traffic lights are burnin', 
So if you like to party, 
Get on and move your body

Mr. Six is an advertising character, first featured in a 2004–05 advertising campaign by the theme park chain Six Flags. Appearing as a bald, decrepit, wrinkled old man wearing a tuxedo and thick-framed glasses, he is usually shown stepping off a bus and inviting stressed and over-worked people to Six Flags by performing a frenetic dance to the Vengaboys song "We Like to Party".

The first airing introduced Mr. Six as an apparently elderly, slow-moving man dressed in his trademark tuxedo and large glasses, pulling up in front of a house in a retro-style bus. The occupants of the house are sitting around the front yard apparently very bored. Mr. Six slowly shuffles off the bus, then suddenly comes to life and performs a high-energy dance routine as "We Like to Party" begins playing, and invites the bored family to Six Flags. The dance he performs borrows moves from the Melbourne Shuffle, Jumpstyle, and Techtonik. Subsequent ads showed different variations of Mr. Six dancing and inviting people to Six Flags. The role was, initially, non-speaking.
By the way, Matthew Wilkening of AOL Radio ranked the song at number 45 on the list of the 100 Worst Songs Ever while telling the listener, "If you live within a few hundred miles of a Six Flags adventure park, you've heard this 4,000 times."

I thought this song's lyrics, essentially poetry, would be pretty appropriate considering that I will be spending the day at Six Flags.

And I will add one last thing, for those of you with young children, nieces, nephews, or grandchildren, Jellystone Park is a fun place for them.  There was gem and fossil mining, mini golf,  horseshoes, a sandbox, a pool, numerous playgrounds, an arcade, and a menagerie of animals: alligators, iguanas, monitors, boa constrictors, macaws, peacocks, tortoises, a bunny, and a pig named Daisy.  There are numerous Jellystone Parks around the U.S. and Canada.

I would have never guessed you'd become a fan of Jellystone Park, let alone give them a plug on your blog. Kinda makes me chuckle. Glad you had a good time with your niece. Have a great time at Six Flags. I'm half expecting you to give them a promotional link on your blog after this vacation. haha.

Six Flags was fun!

Never been to Jellystone, but I've heard they are nice for kids and family.

Peace <3
