Miley Cyrus – Party In The USA lyrics
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 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!

    Ok lemme get somethin straight. With the teen choice awards thing she wasn't pole dancing! She was just holding on to the pole! She was trying to make sure that she doesn't fall off! What if you were standing on a pole that high and you didn't wanna fall? What would you do? I mean, she was just trying to make it entertaining! You wouldn't wanna be just standing on that same pole she was on doing nothing! People would think it was boring! Anyway you rock miley! I got ya covered!

    And "dimples 98" serioulsy stop being so nasty. It is not nice to say things like that.
    All haters of any artist/band on here should log off forever and think about their life. Or stop being so mean and say nice things.
    Are you just hating cause she has a life? Cause she has the world at her feet? Are you hating cause her music isen't at you're taste? That you'd rather listen to aqua or something?
    I don't know about you, but sure Miley isen't my fav artist but I like some of her songs. Like this one. I don't hate but if I odn't like a song I won't go onto that lyrics page and hate. People that hate, please stop and learn some respect and manners.

    Dude, firemen go down on poles because that is what they do to get to their trucks or whatever. I don't see Miley working as a fireman genious, you better get your facts right. P. S. She was infront of little girls, too. You people might say "OMG, get over it one little mistake big deal!" One little mistake from each celeb, is a big deal, not to mention that Miley is only 16 still (she is turning 17 in December) which makes her underage to be doing that type of stuff.

    What's so bad about growing up, and changing the way you look? Miley just cut her hair, started wearing adult clothes, and put more make-up and blush on. What's so bad about her trying to grow up a-little? She can't still be going to "Justice" buying little kid clothes. "Justice is really for tweens. She's almost a grown up. Let her live her life. If she's happy with her life, there's nothing to worry about. If she's not happy with her life, that's probably something to worry about. Miley will always be Miley. Just because she changes her technique doesn't mean you have to judge her.

    Really if you think she looks like a 'hoe' well sorry to brust your bubble but all female celebs dress like that. I totally see how inappropriate she dresses. Butt if that's the person she wants to be. The kind that people judge her on the clothes she wears, like lavatofan247 said she looked like a shank or kittylovesht said she was a lesbian (Are is rude buttt. You kno) and miley can say all she wants about how people are mean to her and her family but if she wants respect then she should grow up! And wear something that she stand up in A crowd and say "LOOK I'M MILEY RAY CYRUS AND I'M PROUND!!!" butt still am a miley supporter but really. That's the truth:)

    To herzheyz1o1, you said that you hate miley at first, then, why do you listen to her songs and criticize the singer? Its not very good to judge people. You, for example, was being judged by somebody else and says something bad to you, what do you feel? You miley haters have no feelings. Me, even if miley is not my favorite singer, I still wanted to listen to her songs. That is why songs are created, to be listened duh? If you like songs, then, you should know that singers are like you, a person. You know, not all singers write songs. Nobody is perfect!

    Pleez explain that pole dancing is when yu wrap yur legs around and sexually engage the pole watch bad girls club gosh they pole dance. I know she has made mistakes but it seems like she is talked about the most. She aint doin drugs or killin, raping, singing s** songs, she is strictly amazing stop making this such a big deal when yur mother lets yu go to school with booty shorts come on! And when ya with ya boyfriend. Becuz and only becuz she is a celebrity people will judge. She is amazing so leave her alone!

    Wow.
    Look at her. Completely changed.
    Look at what example she is setting for smaller kids? Pole dancing? Seriously? I love her songs but hate the way she dresses & acts now.
    She has gone from being a beautiful singer to a tramp. I don't get it. Idk if she thinks its "cool" or what but she needs to be more careful.
    She's not a good example. Even if people like her music, I don't know if little kids will b allowed to see her cause of what she does now. We don't need 2 Brittney Spears. She needs 2 go back 2 who she was b4 all the drama stuff.
    She is dressing as most 17 year olds do in any part of the world. So give it a rest. And if that is what you class as pole dacing what do normal pole dancers do? Is she half naked no. It is just part of the video.
    My daugher is 9 and loves this song. If your children have been brought up correctly then they will not even look at this video and think Wow look she is nasty for pole dancing. They will just see it for what it is part of the video.

    Okay people, don't bicker over dumb things. Jessie j wrote the song. She didn't think it suited her so she gave it away and miley liked it so they changed a couple lyrics to make it suit someone already from america, but not L. A. Honestly, who you like singing it better is up to you so don't fight over it. At the end of the day, this song went quadruple platinum and jessie j reaped more benefits from that than miley ever will. Be mad at her for not writing her own songs if you are that upset.

    Omg seriously miley is practtically an adult and short shorts are better and more appropriate than most of what lady ga wears and she is human! Not some alien that is perfect. You guys want to make a big deal when miley and selena cuss or do some things or make bad choices but completly ignore it when the black eyed peas, lady ga or katy perry do. Even the song apple bottom jeans is way more inappropriate than some of the stuff miley sings and kids in my class were singing it nonstop in pre k and kindergarten. So shut up and leave miley alone and don't comment if you don't have anything nice to say.

    You people are saying "Oh no, she was not pole dancing!" The thing is if she was really trying to keep her balance on top the ice cream cart, why did she go down on the pole. Once you go down on a pole, your pole dancing. Plus, she was showing millions of girls live and through T. V. 'how to dress' and 'how to act'. Did you see what her 9 year old little sister wore for Halloween? That was horrible parenting from Billy Ray, from their mother, and not to mention what amazing influence Miley has on kids. ;) I am not a fan of Miley Cyrus, I only like this song and The Climb, that's it.

    Ok, I'm going to set all of you Miley Cyrus Fans/Haters straight-.
    Haters: Ok, she's famous and all, but does this really mean you have to hate her for 1 Song? She is growing up, and she is an adult now. She can make her own choices because it's her life. No one can tell her what to do because it's her life, and she was the one who sang and danced in it, so the song already has a music video, already has been sung, and already been on tour. Don't be trying to change anything because it's already happened. Just get over it.
    Fans: Miley is growing up, and changing. She's growing up so fast like a baby. Last thing you remember, she was on Hannah Montana. Next thing you know, she's singing sassy style, and not the little cutesy Miles everyone thought she was. I go with most of you, it's just a song, don't make a big deal out of nothing.
    Reference Note-
    Miley is older, maturing, and learning from her mistakes. Like she said to paparazzi, "Life is Good."

    You haters better back off! Miley is a role model for kids, I get that but still you guys are just trying 2 make drama! Get a freaking life and get of ur butts! It's stupid 2 be fighting over the way she dresses nowadays. If you don't like me 2 bad cuz I'm not a miley hater and no 1 will change my mind on whos team I'm on. I'm 10 and rlly don't care bout what yall think. I just care bout miley and no 1 has feelings or thinks right.(there might be some kind of problem in ur big brains if you hate miley) and if yall are thinking bout her mistakes in her life, theres a big chance it could happen 2 you at yound age. She has a life and is happy with it, and still cares about her family. She may not look innocent on the outside, but she is on the inside! Just think right and go back to liking her, she didn't do anything but change the way she looks. Just by looking at her doesn't mean anything, she still is her. I know what I'm saying and typing and all tht stuff but seriously you guys need to get a life and grow up! And remember. Never judge A book by its cover!

    This was the song that was playing when I made out with Jay sean on the streets of new york city. I saw him and he saw me while I was just walkin one day and then he grabs me by the hips and starts french kissin me to death. It was nice though cuz we were sharin acids and all that s*** stuff. But than he started gettin out of control and lifted me up and took me into an apartment and started takin my clothes offf but I liked it. Hahahehe I'll never forget that day: ">

    Good song, shes not bad, its just.
    Isn't she supposed to be lie, a role-model for little girls? Yeah, so why is she walking around in the video with her bra hanging out of her tank top and her a* shaking all over the place? Exactly, I don't think its very good for her to do things like that, but she is gonna do what she pleases so whatever. Good song.

    Mileycyrus2010: she didn't make *Hannah Montana*. She was trying out for a part in it as Zoey since she was like 11 or 12. It was originally Zoey until they changed it to Miley. Since her dad enjoyed acting and singing, Destiny (or Miley) decided to try and so for, she was already good at it! I'm a huge fan of Miley Cyrus and have seen every episode of her tv show. It's the last season and I'm hoping they still keep it on Disney Channel. And everything you said, was basically what I said. If you're on my side, (the Miley lovers) then I mean seriously just agree with it and keep it at my point. No copying or changing the words around. Agree with it and move on. Miley is innocent and always will. She still cares about family and shes not bad. She's more of a grown up now so she has changed. It will happen to everyone!

    Whoever would hate this song would be silly. This is such a good song! Anyway on Itunes it's popularity is full. Wow. But I don't live in the you. S. A. Oh yeah Taylor Swift is one of her bff's (Best friends forever) That's why they sing such good songs together like one time they sang "Fifteen" by Taylor together. Oh it would be nice to meet them and get their autograph.
    But as soon as they start selling tickets to her concerts. I'm gonna be the first one (wink wink nudge.)
