Music Monday: Prince – 1999

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

The song and video I am sharing today is:

Prince – 1999

Having just celebrated yet another new year I can’t help but have this classic pop into mind. 😊

 

 

Lyrics:

I was dreamin’
When I wrote this
Forgive me
If it goes astray
But when I woke up
This mornin’
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
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 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
They say
Two thousand
Zero, zero
Party over
Oops, out of time
So tonight
I’m gonna party
Like it’s 1999
1999
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
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’re gonna party
Like it’s 1999
Say, say
Two thousand
Zero, zero
Party over
Oops, out of time
So tonight
We’re 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
1999
