Lyrics[]

{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', could've 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

Say say two thousand zero zero party over, oops, out of time

So tonight I'm gonna party like it's nineteen ninety-nine

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 hey, they say two thousand zero zero party over, oops, out of time

So tonight I'm gonna party like it's nineteen ninety-nine

Yeah, yeah, hey

People, let me tell you somethin'

If you didn't come to party, don't bother knockin' on my door, oww

I got a lion in my pocket and baby he's ready to roar, yeah hey

Everybody's got a bomb, we could all die any day, oh

But before I let that happen, I'll dance my life away, oh ho

They say two thousand zero zero party over, oops, out of time

(We're runnin' out of time)

So tonight I'm gonna party like it's nineteen ninety-nine

(We gonna, we gonna, oh)

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 nineteen ninety-nine

(We gonna, we gonna)

Alright, nineteen ninety-nine

You say it, nineteen ninety-nine

Mmm nineteen ninety-nine

(Oww, nineteen ninety-nine)

Don't stop it, don't stop it, 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 nineteen ninety-nine

(We gonna, we gonna, whoa)

Yeah, nineteen ninety-nine

Don't you wanna go?

(Nineteen ninety-nine)

Don't you wanna go?

(Nineteen ninety-nine)

We could all die any day

(Nineteen ninety-nine)

I don't wanna die, I'd rather dance my life away

(Nineteen ninety-nine)

Listen to what I'm tryin' to say

Everybody, everybody say party

Come on now, you say it party

That's right, everybody say party

Can't run from revelation, no

(Party)

Sing it for your nation, y'all

(Party)

(Ow!)

Dreamin' when you're singin', baby

(Party)

Say the telephone a ringin', mama, now

(Party)

Come on, come on, you say

(Party)

Everybody, two times

(Party)

(Ow!)

Work it down to the ground, I'm sayin'

(Party)

Oh baby, say it again

(Ooh hoo hoo)

(Party)

Oh, shake your body, baby!

(Party)

That's right, come on, sing the song

(Party)

Ah aah ha

(Party)

That's right

(Party)

Got a lion in my pocket mama, say

(Party)

Ah, and he's ready to roar

(Party)

Mommy, why does everybody have a bomb?

Mommy, why does everybody have a bomb?
