Don't worry, won't hurt U
only want U 2 have some fun

was dreamin' when wrote this
4give me if it goes astray
But when woke up this morning
Coulda sworn it was judgment day
The sky was all purple
There were people runnin' everywhere
Tryin' 2 run from the destruction
U know didn't even care

Cuz they say 2000, zero zero, party over
Oops! Out of time
So 2night 'm gonna party like it's 1999

was dreamin' when wrote this
So sue me if go 2 fast
But life is just a party & parties weren't meant 2 last
War is all around us
My mind says prepare 2 fight
So if gotta die, 'm gonna listen 2 my body 2night
Yeah

They say 2000, zero zero, party over
Oops! Out of time
So 2night 'm gonna party like it's 1999
Yeah

People, let me tell ya somethin'...
If U didn't come 2 party
Don't bother knockin' on my door
got a lion N my pocket
&, baby, he's ready 2 roar
Yeah
Everybody's got a bomb
We could all die any day
Oh
But b4 'll let that happen
'll dance my life away
Oh

They say 2000, zero zero, party over
Oops! Out of time
We're runnin' outta time
So 2night we're gonna, we're gonna... oh!
(2night 'm gonna party like it's 1999)
Say it 1 more time
2000, zero zero, party over
Oops! Out of time
No, no
So 2night we're gonna, we gonna... whoo!
(2night 'm gonna party like it's 1999)
Alright, 1999
U say, 1999
Ooh, 1999
Ooh, 1999
Don't stop, don't stop, say it 1 more time
2000, zero zero, party over
Oops! Out of time
Yeah
So 2night we gon', we're gonna... whoo!
(2night 'm gonna party like it's 1999)

1999
Don't U wanna go? (1999)
Don't U wanna go? (1999)
Ooh
We could all die any day (1999)
don't wanna die, 'd rather dance my life away (1999)
Listen 2 what 'm tryin' 2 say
Everybody, everybody say party
C'mon now, U say party
That's right, everybody say party
U can't run from revelation, no (Party)
Sing it 4 ur nation, y'all (Party)
Dial me with ur finger, baby (Party)
The telephone is ringin', mama (Party)
C'mon, c'mon, U say party
Everybody 2 times (Party)
Workin' underground, now say it (Party)
Ooh (Party)
Oh, everybody, baby (Party)
That's right, c'mon, sing the song (Party)

That's right, everybody say party
got a lion N my pocket, mama, say party
Oh & he's ready 2 roar (Party)
Yeah!
