Don't worry, I wont hurt u
I only want u 2 have some fun
I was dreamin when I wrote this
Forgive me if it goes astray
But when I woke up this mornin
Coulda sworn it was judgment day
The sky was all purple,
There were people runnin everywhere
Tryin 2 run from the destruction,
U know I didn't even care

Cuz they say two thousand zero zero party over,
Oops out of time
So tonight Im gonna party like it's 1999

I was dreamin when I wrote this
So sue me if I go 2 fast
But life is just a party, and parties werent meant 2 last
War is all around us, my mind says prepare 2 fight
So if I gotta die Im gonna listen 2 my body tonight

Yeah, they say two thousand zero zero party over,
Oops out of time
So tonight Im gonna party like it's 1999
Yeah

Lemme tell ya somethin
If u didn't come 2 party,
Don't bother knockin on my door
I got a lion in my pocket,
And baby he's ready 2 roar
Yeah, everybodys got a bomb,
We could all die any day
But before I'll let that happen,
Ill dance my life away

Oh, they say two thousand zero zero party over,
Oops out of time
Were runnin outta time (tonight Im gonna)
So tonight we gonna (party like it's 1999)
We gonna, oww

Say it 1 more time
Two thousand zero zero party over oops,
Out of time
No, no (tonight Im gonna)
So tonight we gonna (party like it's 1999)
We gonna, oww

Alright, it's 1999
You say it, 1999
1999
1999 don't stop, don't stop, say it 1 more time
Two thousand zero zero party over,
Oops out of time
Yeah, yeah (tonight Im gonna)
So tonight we gonna (party like it's 1999)
We gonna, oww

Yeah, 1999 (1999)
Don'tcha wanna go (1999)
Don'tcha wanna go (1999)
We could all die any day (1999)
I don't wanna die,
Id rather dance my life away (1999)
Listen 2 what Im tryin 2 say
Everybody, everybody say party
Cmon now, u say party
That's right, everybody say (party)
Cant run from the revelation, no (party)
Sing it 4 your nation yall (party)
Tell me what you're singin, baby say (party)
Telephones a-ringin, mama (party)
Cmon, cmon, u say (party)
Everybody, [two times] (party)
Work it down 2 the ground, say (party)

Got a lion in my pocket mama, say (party)
Oh, and he's ready 2 roar (party)

Mommy, why does everybody have a bomb?
