This is the life of the party, we gon' do it right

So U're havin' a party? Goody 4 U
All the beautiful people gonna b there, yeah, that's cool
U know U're gonna have a good time cuz U got the news
That the life of the party is gon' party wit U
We're doin' our own thing till the sun come up (Oh yeah)
Sweet Candy gon' b there (Uh-huh)
Yeah, it's gon' b rough (Say it's gonna b rough)
She ain't got no off switch and neither do I
When U read it n the paper 2morrow
U gon' hang ur head and cry (Whoo)

We gon' have us a party, all r welcome 2 (Ooh)
We ain't down with nobody don't party like we do
Once we get it started, we got 2 go all night, uh
This is the life of the party, we gon' do it right (Oh Lord)

Why party n ur own yard when U can party n mine?
All the beautiful people gonna b there puttin' the I n fine
Throw the records out my window (Uh-oh)
CDs out the door (Throw it away)
Might as well give it 2 the milkman (What?)
We don't want it no more
Everybody can smell this funk, y'all (Whoo)
Down n Atlanta, GA (Whatchu say?)
Everybody, even Dre and them know it's OK (Y'all know it's OK)
Hey, we don't need no trippin', y'all, on this special day
We just called 2 let U know U better not come if U can't stay
Hey!

We gon' have us a party, all r welcome 2 (All)
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 gon' do it right (Uh)
Horns
Uh
Whoo!
Uh

What's it... gonna take 2 get ur booty soakin' wet?
U and me closer, baby, that's a bet
I'm the life of the party
As long as I got ur 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)
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 makin' cuts 4 y'all (Oh!)
Uh, Lord
Keepin' the party packed, fans wall 2 wall
I don't care what they said
"He don't play the hits no more plus I thought he was gay"
But it ain't nothin' if it ain't fun
My voice is gettin' higher and I ain't never had my nose done
Look out, uh uh
All the purple hippies bang ur heads on the 1

We gon' have us a party, all r welcome 2 (Sing ma')
We ain't down with nobody 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 gon' do it right (Hey)
Hey
Have us a party, all r welcome 2 (Ow!)
And we ain't down with nobody that don't party like we do
Once we get it started, we got 2 go all night (Get it ma')
This is the life of the party, we gon' do it right (Horns)

Whoo, huh
Life of the party
Hey
Life of the party
Do do do do, do do do do
