1999

Lyricist: PRINCE ROGERS NELSON    Composer: PRINCE ROGERS NELSON

Don't worry, I won't hurt U...
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 morning
I could have 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)

'Cuz they say...
2000 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

'Cuz they say...
2000 zero zero party over oops out of time
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999

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
Everybody's got a bomb
We could all die any day, Oh
But before I'll let that happen
I'll dance my life away

'Cuz they say...
(2000 zero zero party over oops out of time) We're runnin' outta time
(So Tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999) So tonight we gonna, we gonna...Ow!
Say it 1 more time
(2000 zero zero party over oops out of time) No, no...
(Tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999) So tonight we gonna, we gonna...Woo!
