I was dreaming when I wrote this
Forgive me if it goes astray
But when I woke up this morning
Could've sworn it was Judgment Day

Sky was all purple
There were people running everywhere
Trying to run from the destruction
You know, I didn't even care

'Cuz they say 2000, zero, zero, party over
Oops, out of time
So tonight, I'm gonna party like it's 1999

I was dreaming 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

They say 2000, zero, zero, party over
Oops, out of time
So tonight, I'm gonna party like it's 1999

Lemme tell ya something
If you didn't come to party
Don't bother knocking on my door
I've got a lion in my pocket
And baby, he's ready to roar

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

They say 2000, zero, zero, party over
Oops, out of time
We're running outta time
So tonight, we gonna party like it's 1999
Say it one more time

2000, zero, zero, party over
Oops, out of time
So tonight, we gonna party like it's 1999

1999
Don'tcha wanna go? 1999
Don'tcha wanna go? 1999
We could all die any day
(1999)
I don't wanna die
