Gary Numan – 1999 lyrics
Don't worry, i won't 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 i'm 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 weren't meant 2 last
War is all around us, my mind says prepare 2 fight
So if i gotta die i'm gonna listen 2 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

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

Oh, they say two thousand zero zero party over,
Oops out of time
We're runnin' outta time (tonight i'm 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 i'm 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 i'm 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,
I'd rather dance my life away (1999)
Listen 2 what i'm tryin' 2 say
Everybody, everybody say party
C'mon now, u say party
That's right, everybody say (party)
Can't run from the revelation, no (party)
Sing it 4 your nation y'all (party)
Tell me what you're singin', baby say (party)
Telephone's a-ringin', mama (party)
C'mon, c'mon, u say (party)
Everybody, [two times] (party)
Work it down 2 the ground, say (party)
(party)
Come on, take my body, baby(party)
That's right, c'mon, sing the song (party)
(party)
That's right (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?
Mommy--why does everybody have a bomb?
