Prince 1999 Lyrics

Last updated: 01/02/2013 01:03:13 PM

Don't worry, I won't hurt you
I only want you to have some fun

I was dreaming when I wrote this,
Forgive me if it goes astray.
But when I woke up there this mornin',
Could've sworn it was judgment day.
The sky was all purple,
There were people running everywhere,
Tryin' to run from the destruction,
You know I didn't even care.

'Cause they say 2,000 zero zero party over, oops! Out of time!
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999!

I was dreaming 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, they say 2,000 zero zero party over, oops! Out of time!
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999! (Yeah, yeah)

People, let me tell you 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. (Yeah)
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, they say 2,000 zero zero party over, oops! Out of time!
(We're runnin' out of time)
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999!
(We gonna, we gonna, oh!)

Say it one more time.
2,000 zero zero party over, oops! Out of time! (No, no)
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999!
(We're gonna, we gonna)

Alright, 1999!
You say it, 1999!
1999 (1999)

Don't stop, don't stop, say it one more time.
2,000 zero zero party over, oops! Out of time! (Yeah, yeah)
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999!
(We gonna, we're gonna)

Yeah, 1999 (1999)
Don't you wanna go? (1999)
Don't you wanna go? (1999)
We could all die any day (1999)
I don't wanna die, I'd rather dance my life away (1999)
Listen tp what I'm tryin' to say
Everybody, everybody say party!
Come on now, you say it (Party!)
That's right, everybody say (Party!) {repeat in BG}
Can't run from revelation, no!
Sing it for your nation, y'all!
Dreaming when you're singin', baby!
Say the telephone a-ringin', mama, now!
Come on, come on, you say!
Everybody, two times!
Work it down to the ground, I'm sayin'
(Oh baby, say it again)
(Oh, shake your body, baby!)
That's right, come on, sing the song!
That's right, everybody say!
Got a lion in my pocket mama, say!
Ah, and he's ready to roar!
Yeah!
