I hopped off the plane at LAX with a dream and my cardigan
Welcome to the land of fame, excess, whoa am I gotta fit in?
Jumped in the cab, here I am for the first time
Look to my right, and I see the Hollywood sign

This is all so crazy, everybody seems so famous
My tummy's turnin' and I'm feelin' kinda homesick
Too much pressure and I'm nervous
That's when the taxi man turned on the radio

And the Jay-Z song was on
And the Jay-Z song was on
And the Jay-Z song was on

So I put my hands up, they're playin' my song
The butterflies fly away
I'm noddin' my head like "Yeah!"
Movin' my hips like "Yeah!"

Got my hands up, they're playin' my song
And now I'm gonna be okay
Yeah! It's a party in the USA!
Yeah! It's a party in the USA!

Get to the club in my taxi cab
Everybody's lookin' at me now
Like "Who's that chick that's rockin' kicks
She's gotta be from out of town"

So hard with my girls not around me
It's definitely not a Nashville party
'Cause all I see are stilettos
I guess I never got the memo

My tummy's turnin' and I'm feelin' kinda homesick
Too much pressure and I'm nervous
That's when the DJ dropped my favorite tune

And the Britney song was on
And the Britney song was on
And the Britney song was on

So I put my hands up, they're playin' my song
The butterflies fly away
I'm noddin' my head like "Yeah!"
Movin' my hips like "Yeah!"

Got my hands up, they're playin' my song
And now I'm gonna be okay
Yeah! It's a party in the USA!
Yeah! It's a party in the USA!

Feel like hoppin' on a flight, on a flight
Back to my hometown tonight, town tonight
Something stops me every time, every time
The DJ plays my song and I feel alright

So I put my hands up, they're playin' my song
The butterflies fly away
I'm noddin' my head like "Yeah!"
Movin' my hips like "Yeah!"

Got my hands up, they're playin' my song
And now I'm gonna be okay
Yeah! It's a party in the USA!
Yeah! It's a party in the USA!

So I put my hands up, they're playin' my song
The butterflies fly away
I'm noddin' my head like "Yeah!"
Movin' my hips like "Yeah!"

Got my hands up, they're playin' my song
And now I'm gonna be okay
Yeah! It's a party in the USA!
Yeah! It's a party in the USA!

    well,119936jgirl,i know about the short shorts thing,and at least miley doesn't go out in PUBLIC wearing that kind of things! miley IS GROWING UP and we have to accept the fact that she wants to be TREATED like an adult and she wants to ACT like an adult. i'm sorry 119936 if my review caused you a problem.(i really am!) it's just miley is my #1 fav person in the world and i really look up to her. i myself sometimes get mad if she does things she's not supposed to. i yell what in the world miley!!! then i get real mad! so sorry if i was being rude or mean in any way. but miley only wears those kinds of things when she is performing. when she is not performing she wears what us people would wear.

    miley cyrus is not growing up too fast. she's just taking a little bit of mature stuff into her life. you guys might not like it, but there is nothing we can do about it. if she wants to live her life as a bad person, let her. because you can't change the way that she lives. it's ok for her to be dancing like this, but to all of you who say she was pole dancing, WTH she was NOT pole dancing! all she was doing was holding on to the pole. she maybe added a little giddy giddy dance so people wouldn't think why is she just holding on to the pole? people would have thought it was boring! i have to agree with allielover101, because she is growing up and we have to accept the fact that she is going to be an adult soon. not to be rude, but to all the people who don't like miley, please don't comment. thanks!
