Prince - 1999 (The Inevitable Mix)

(1999) {repeated and looped}
(Yeah yeah)
(1999)
(Yeah yeah)
(1999)

I was dreamin' when I wrote this, forgive me if it goes astray
But when I woke up this mornin', could've sworn it was Judgment Day
The sky was all purple, there were people runnin' everywhere
Tryin' 2 run from my destruction, U know I didn't even care

Cuz they say 2000 zero zero party over, oops, out of time!
So 2night I'm gonna party like it's 1999!
(Yeah yeah)
(1999)
(Yeah yeah)
(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 2night

Yeah, they say 2000 zero zero party over, oops, out of time!
So 2night I'm gonna party like it's 1999!
I'm ready now, I'm ready (Yeah)
I'm ready, man, party, 4 real (1999)
This is the real party here [...] (Yeah yeah)
This is official, U know what I'm sayin'?
And this how we gets down, yo (Yeah yeah) (1999)

Purple Rain sustained as Prince entertained
Only love from the God above changed the name
No ego in the game, no need 2 place blame
And other than the freedom, the music stayed the same (Yeah)
He never took a title that he don't claim
Haters be hatin' because his radio fame
(B-b-boo, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Love 4 one another, it's only one aim
AS the skies turned the color of red, I see flames
Said 1999 came
Put up your hands and show no shame
This is the party of the century
And The Artist in the house with the NPG
Hands in the air, so many I can't see
Put up your hands if U know U're free
I say party, party, come on!

If U didn't come 2 party, don't bother knockin' on my door
(All right y'all, all night y'all, come on, got 2 get down)
Cuz I got a lion in my pocket and, baby, he's ready 2 roar (Yeah)
(Say what?) Party huh, party, come on, party
All right y'all, all night y'all, got 2 get down
All right y'all, come, come on, got 2 get down
Tell me, tell me, tell me who's in here
Tell me, tell me who's in here (Say what?)

2000 zero zero party over, oops, out of time!
(Who want 2 get on down with your man, Doug E.?)
So 2night I'm gonna party like it's 1999!
(Who want 2 get on down with your man, Larry? Come on!)
2000 zero, zero party over oops out of time
(Who want 2 get on down with your girl, Rosie?)
2night, I'm gonna, we're gonna, oh yeah
(2night I'm gonna party like it's 1999) (1999)

Mommy... Why does everybody have a bomb?

{crowd noise}

(1999) {repeated and looped}
(Yeah yeah) {x2}
(P-p-p-p-party y'all)
(Yeah yeah) {x3}
