[INTRO]
Bb/C    F9

[VERSE 1]
      F7

   F7                         F7  Eb/F  F7  Eb/F  F7                       
Forgive me if it goes astray
           F7
But when I woke up this mornin'
       F7                        F7  Eb/F  F7  Eb/F  F7 
Coulda sworn it was judgment day
    F7
The sky was all purple,
           F7                         F7  Eb/F  F7  Eb/F  F7 
There were people runnin' everywhere
         F7
Tryin' 2 run from the destruction,
                F7               F7  Eb/F  F7  Eb/F  F7 
U know I didn't even care


[CHORUS 1]
            BbM7                     Dmin7      
say say two thousand zero zero party over, Oops out of time
   BbM7                              Dmin7
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999

      F7
I was dreamin' when I wrote this
   F7                     F7  Eb/F  F7  Eb/F  F7 
So sue me if I go 2 fast
    F7
But life is just a party,
    F7                           F7  Eb/F  F7  Eb/F  F7  
and parties weren't meant 2 last
F7
War is all around us, 
   F7                        F7  Eb/F  F7  Eb/F  F7 
my mind says prepare 2 fight
   F7
So if I gotta die
          F7                        F7  Eb/F  F7  Eb/F  F7 
I'm gonna listen 2 my body tonight

If U didn't come 2 party,
      F7                         F7  Eb/F  F7  Eb/F  F7 
Don't bother knockin' on my door
        F7
I got a lion in my pocket,
    F7                      F7  Eb/F  F7  Eb/F  F7 
And baby he's ready 2 roar

Yeah, everybody's got a bomb,
         F7                F7  Eb/F  F7  Eb/F  F7 
We could all die any day
     F7
But before I'll let that happen,
     F7                   F7  Eb/F  F7  Eb/F  F7 
I'll dance my life away


[CHORUS 3]
