    It simply means, "It is not fun."
    Also with the same meaning, "This is no picnic."

    David Byrne of the Talking Heads wrote:

    "This ain't no party. This ain't no disco. This ain't no foolin' around."

    I think the name of the song is "Life During Wartime," but I could be mistaken.
