1999 Lyrics - Prince

Review The Song (3)



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!

Because not everyone is into death metal songs about demons and decapitation, or rap talking about screwing some slut, shooting and killing, or smokin blunts. Not everyone is a loser that has to put someone else down to feel better about themselves.

Love this song! | Reviewer: Kerryn | 11/8/11

I love this song! I was born in 1994 and I remember when everyone was all in a panick about how the world was gonna end in 2000 and it didn't. I'm graduating in 2012, so I think they should make a song called "2012", even though I think it's total BS that the world is gonna end, but it would be fun if they made a song about it. Again, great song! :)

What a QUEER!!!!!!!!! | Reviewer: Ekke | 7/19/07
