1999
Don't worry, I won't hurt you
I only want you to have some fun


I was dreamin' when I wrote this
Forgive me if it goes astray
But when I woke up this mornin'
Could have sworn it was Judgment Day

The sky was all purple
There were people runnin' everywhere
Tryin' to run from the destruction
You know I didn't even care

They say two thousand zero, zero
Party over
Oops, out of time
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999

I was dreamin' when I wrote this
So sue me if I go too fast
But life is just a party
And parties weren't meant to last

War is all around us
My mind says prepare to fight
So if I gotta die
I'm gonna listen to my body tonight, yeah

They say two thousand zero, zero
Party over
Oops, out of time
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999
Yeah

Let me tell you somethin'
If you didn't come to party
Don't bother knockin' on my door
I got a lion in my pocket
And baby, he's ready to roar, yeah

Everybody's got a bomb
We could all die any day, ow
But before I'll let that happen
I'll dance my life away, whoa

They say two thousand zero, zero
Party over
Oops, out of time
(We're runnin' outta time)
So tonight we're gonna party like it's 1999, ow

Say it one more time
Two thousand zero, zero
Party over
Oops, out of time
So tonight we're gonna party like it's 1999

Alright, it's 1999
You say it, 1999
1999
1999
Don't stop, don't stop, say it one more time

Two thousand zero, zero
Party over
Oops, out of time, yeah yeah
So tonight we're gonna party like it's 1999

1999, don't you wanna go?
1999, don't you wanna go?
1999, we could all die here today
1999, I don't wanna die, I'd rather dance my life away
Listen to what I'm tryin' to say

Everyboday, everybody say, "Party"
C'mon, you say, "Party"
That's right, everybody say "Party"
Can't run from rhythm nation "Party"
Sing it for your nation, y'all "Party"
"Party"
Telephone ringin', babe "Party"
C'mon, c'mon, you say "Party"
Everybody "Party"
"Party"
"Party"
"Party"
"Party"
That's right, c'mon, sing your song "Party"
"Party"
That's right "Party"
I got a lion in my pocket, mama "Party"
And he's ready to roar "Party"

Mommy, why does everybody have a bomb?
Mommy, why does everybody have a bomb?
