Don't worry, I won't hurt you
I only want you to 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' to run from the destruction
You know I didn't even care

''cause 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 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

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 you didn't come to party
Don't bother knockin' on my door
I got a lion in my pocket
And baby he's ready to 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

They say two thousand zero zero party over
Oops out of time
We're runnin' outta time
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999

Say it one more time
Two thousand zero zero party over
Oops out of time
No, no
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999

Alright, it's 1999
You say it, 1999
1999
1999 don't stop, don't stop, say it one more time

Two thousand zero zero party over
Oops out of time
Yeah, yeah
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999

Yeah, 1999
Don'tcha wanna go
Don'tcha wanna go
We could all die any day
I don't wanna die
I'd rather dance my life away
Listen to what I'm tryin' to say

Everybody, everybody say party
C'mon now, you say party
That's right, everybody say
Can't run from the revelation, no
Sing it for your nation y'all
Tell me what you're singin', baby say
Telephone's a-ringin', mama
C'mon, c'mon, you say
Everybody,
Work it down to the ground, say party
Come on, take my body, baby party
That's right, c'mon, sing the song party
That's right party
Got a lion in my pocket mama, say party
Oh, and he's ready to roar party

Mommy, why does everybody have a bomb?
Mommy, why does everybody have a bomb?
/A/
