Prince – Life O' The Party lyrics

This is the life o' the party
We gonna do it right

So Ur havin' a party?
Goody 4 U
All the beautiful people gonna b there?
Yeah, that's cool
U know Ur gonna have a good time cause U got the news
That the life o' the party is gonna party with U

We're doing our own thing
Until the sun'll come up
Sweet Candy gonna b there
Yeah, it's gonna b rough
She ain't got no off switch
And neither do eye
When U read it in the paper 2morrow
U gonna hang Ur head and cry


We gonna have us a party
All r welcome 2
We ain't down with nobody
That don't party like we do
Once we get it started
We got 2 go all night
This is the life of the party
We gonna do it right

Why party in your own yard
When U can party in mine?
All the beautiful people gonna b there
Puttin' the "I" in fine
Throw the records out my window
CD's out the door
Might as well give it 2 the milkman
We don't want it no more

Everybody can smell this funk y'all
Down in Altanta GA
Everybody, even Dre and Em, know it's OK
Hey, we don't need any trippin' y'all on this special day
We just callin' 2 let U know
U better not come if U can't stay


What's it gonna take 2 get Ur booty soakin' wet?
U and me closer baby, that's a bet

Eye'm the life of the party
As long as eye got your body
Shakin like a leaf on a tree
Cutie come dance with me
U and me, we got mad chemistry
Don't it make U wanna holler?
Come with the life of the party, y'all
We're still makin dollars
25 years 2 life
The judge sentenced me 2 hard labor with a knife
Making cuts 4 y'all
Keeping the party packed and wall 2 wall
Eye don't care what they say
"He don't play the hits no more
plus eye thought he was gay"

But it ain't nothing if it ain't fun
My voice is getting higher
and Eye ain't never had my nose done
That's the other guy
All the purple hippies bang your head on the 1
