"Party Favor", stylized as "party favor", is the fifth track by Billie Eilish featured on her debut extended play (EP), dont smile at me. It was released on August 11th, 2017.

Theme Edit

The song is formatted as a voicemail that Billie is leaving for a boy who has become possessive of her. It is an attempt at forcing him out of her life.

Lyrics Edit

[Intro]
Hey, leave a message

[Verse 1]
Hey - call me back when ya get this
Or when you've got a minute
We really need to talk
Wait - you know what
Maybe just forget it
Cuz by the time you get this
Your number might be blocked

[Chorus]
"Stay" and "bla bla bla"
You just want what you can't have
No way
I'll call the cops
If you don't stop, I'll call your dad

And I hate to do this to you on your birthday
Happy birthday by the way...
"It's not you it's me" and all that other bullshit
You know that's bullshit
Dontcha, babe
I'm not your party favor

[Verse 2]
Look - now I know we coulda done it better
But we can't change the weather
When the weather's come and gone
Books don't make sense if ya read 'em backwards
You'll single out the wrong words
Like you mishear all my songs

[Chorus]
You hear "stay" and "bla bla bla"
You just want what you can't have
No way
I'll call the cops
If you don't stop, I'll call your dad

And I hate to do this to you on your birthday
Happy birthday by the way
"It's not you it's me" and all that other bullshit
You know that's bullshit
Dontcha, babe
I'm not your party favor

Trivia Edit

  • In concerts, Billie usually performs a part of Hotline Bling before this song.
  • During the short acoustic intro, a quiet male voice in the background can be heard saying "one, two". It is likely that this is Finneas' voice.
