Gala Ceremony Lyrics

Gala Ceremony Lyrics
By Andrea Michaels

"Putting It Together"
Bit by bit we put events together
Piece by piece, only way to make a party soar
Every party needs an invitation
Every little detail comes to the fore
Starting with a vision, and elation
You know you can’t risk hesitation
Putting it together, that’s what counts
Stem by stem, putting it together

Small details, adding up to make a work of art
First of all you need a good foundation
And of course you have to add some heart

Takes a lot of earnest preparation
But without the proper dedication
Having just the visions and solutions
Everything depends on execution
The art of making art
Is putting it together, bit by bit

Events aren’t easy
Every minor detail is a major decision
Have to keep things in scale
Have to hold your vision
Even if you’re feeling apprehensive
And your client’s mean and is offensive
And you wish your budget was extensive
Don’t forget the theming is expensive

Events aren’t easy
Every word, every bloom, every chair, every detail
You improve and refine
Then refine each improvement

Theme by theme, putting it together
Piece by piece, working out the vision night and day
All it takes is time and perseverance
Dealing with details along the way
Dealing with venue’s interference
Waiting for the client’s disappearance
Filling up the space with decorations
Covering up the flaws in the presentations
Adding some needed ostentations
Could it be that there are tiny deviations
Earning only tiny compensations
From theses challenging situations
It’s like running United Nations
But hoping for thunderous ovations

The art of special events is
Putting it together
Bit by bit, putting it together

Stem by stem, plate by plate, chair by chair, light by light, piece by piece, by stage
By script, by call, by fax, by crew, by meals
Team by team ... we make it look like art!

"We’re Here For The Party"
(Adapted from "I’m Here For The Party")
Well, we’re all party-plannin’, event-makin’, crazy son of a guns
We dream of galas day and night just to watch our employees come undone
We’re here at the Shrine for these b***-bustin’ hours
While they hand out little awards for food and flowers

Chorus:
You know we’re here for the party
And we ain’t leavin’ till they throw us out
Gonna have a little fun
Galas have just begun
You know we’re here, we’re here for the party

We might do nonprofits, one or two big corporate affairs
And if they give us half a chance we can get to the dance
Isn’t that fair?
We’ve been waitin’ all week
Just to get our awards
So bring them on people, they are our rewards

Chorus:
We know you’re here for the party
And you ain’t leavin’ till they throw you out
Gonna have a little fun
Galas have just begun
We know you’re here, you’re here for the party

Bridge:
Get to the multi-day incentive
Where money just flows
From fair to corporate, our industry grows

Chorus:
We know you’re here for the party
And you ain’t leavin’ till they throw you out
Gonna have a little fun
Galas have just begun
We know you’re here, you’re here for the party

We’re here for the party
We’re here for the party
We’re here for the party
