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


'Cuz 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 2 fast


But life is just a party
And parties weren't meant 2 last


War is all around us
My mind says prepare 2 fight

So if I gotta die
I'm gonna listen 2 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 U didn't come 2 party
Don't bother knockin' on my door

I got a lion in my pocket
And baby he's ready 2 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 we gonna, we gonna (Tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999)

Say it 1 more time
Two thousand zero zero party over
Oops out of time
No, no
So tonight we gonna, we gonna (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 1 more time

Two thousand zero zero party over
Oops out of time
Yeah, Yeah
So tonight we gonna, we gonna (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
