Another one from this remarkable record. A party line is a duplex what we called in socialist times - you can hear other people's conversations on the phone There are signs of deconstruction even in everyday life. Thus the slow.

Lyrics:

I'm on a party line,

Wonderin' all the time,
D C G
Who's on the other end?
G
Is she big, is she small?

Is she a she at all?
D C G
Who's on my party line?

Wish I had a more direct connection.

This party line was here when I arrived.

And I'm not voting in the next election,

If they don't do something about finding out

The person who is on my party line.

Demo: 

You can always have enough of the Beatles but you can never have enough of the Kinks.

Lyrics: 

D
Dandy, Dandy,
Where you gonna go now?
Who you gonna run to?
G G/F# Em
All your little life
G G/F# Em
You're chasing all the girls.
G G/F# Em
They can't resist your smile.
G C G D
Oh, oh, they long for Dandy, Dandy.
D
Chattin' up the ladies,
Tickling their fancy,
G G/F# Em
Pouring out your charms
To meet your own demands,
G G/F# Em
And turn it off at will.
G C G D
Oh, oh, they long for Dandy, Dandy.

Knockin' on the back door,
Climbing through the window,
G F# Em
Hubby's gone away,
And while the cat's away
The mice are gonna play.
G C G D
Oh, oh, you low down Dandy, Dandy.
Dandy

F# C#7
Dandy, you know you're moving much too fast,
F# C#7
And Dandy, you know you can't escape the past.
A E7
Look around you and see the people settle down,
A A/G A/F#
And when you're old and grey you will remember what
A/F
they said,
A A/G A/F#
That two girls are too many, three's a crowd and
A/F
four you're dead.

[Verse 5]
D
Oh Dandy, Dandy,
When you gonna give up?
Are you feeling old now?
G G/F# Em
You always will be free,
G G/F# Em
You need no sympathy,
G G/F# Em
A bachelor you will stay,
G C G D
And Dandy, you're all right.
C G D
You're all right.
You're all right.
You're all right.
You're all right.
You're all right.
