„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 tonight.Yeah, they say two thousand zero zero party over,
oops out of time
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999.“
— Prince American pop, songwriter, musician and actor 1958 - 2016
Song lyrics, 1999 (1982)
