Tonight We’re Gonna Party Like It’s 2099

Prince

In honor of the recent passing of Prince, I’ve written an updated version of his classic song “1999”:

 

I was waist deep in flood water when I wrote this only yesterday.

It dawned on me that maybe this was gonna be our final day.

The sea level is risin’ everybody make for higher ground.

Then let’s kick it and get trippy while we all just party down.

 

Say say three thousand zero zero party’s over oops, outta time.

So tonight we’re gonna party like it’s 2099

 

You know this shit’s been comin’ we’ve been reading all the warning signs.

But our leaders are all numb nuts who’ll escape just in the nick of time.

They’re heading off to Mars, while our asses are left here to drown.

And before I kick the bucket I’ll just shake my ass around.

 

Say say three thousand zero zero party’s over, oops, outta time.

So tonight we’re gonna party like it’s 2099.

 

We’re having a dance party, everybody get here while you can.

But it’s really a secret meeting where we’ll hatch our master plan.

We’re stealing that big rocket and we’ll get the fuck outta here.

And we’ll leave those nasty douchebags in the Northern Hemisphere.

 

Say say three thousand zero zero party’s over, oops, outta time.

So tonight we’re gonna party like it’s 2099
