Prince - 1999 Lyrics






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' to run from the destruction
You know I didn't even care

'Cause 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

Yeah, they say two thousand zero zero
Party over, oops out of time
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999
Yeah, yeah

Lemme tell ya somethin'
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 yeah

Everybody's got a bomb
We could all die here today, uhh
But before I'll let that happen
I'll dance my life away, oh

They say two thousand zero zero
Party over, oops out of time
We're runnin' outta time
So tonight we gonna, we gonna (tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999)

Say it one more time
Two thousand zero zero
Party over, oops out of time
Yeah, yeah
So tonight we gonna, we gonna (tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999)

1999 (1999)
Don't ya want to go (1999)
Don't ya want to go (1999)
We could all die here today (1999)
I don't want to die
I'd rather dance my life away

Little Red Corvette

[Verse 1:]
I guess I should have know, by the way you parked your car
Side ways, that it wouldn't last
See your the kind of person, who believes in making out once
Love 'em and leave them fast
I guess I must be dumb, cause she had a pocket full of horses
Trojan and some of them used
But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it alright
And u say, what have I got to lose
(Honey I say)

[Chorus:]
Little red corvette
Baby your much too fast
Little red corvette
You need a love that's gonna last

[Verse 2:]
Guess I should have closed, my eyes when you drove me
To the places where your horses run free
Cause I felt a little I'll, as I saw all the pictures
Of the jockeys that were there before me
Believe it or not, I started to worry
I wonder if I had enough class
But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it alright
And you say, Baby have you got enough gas
(Oh Yeah)

[Chorus:]
Little red corvette
Baby your much too fast, yes you are
Little red corvette
You need to find a love that's gonna last

[Verse 3:]
A body like yours, ought to be in jail
Cause it's on the verge of being obscene
Move over baby, give me your keys
Cause I'm a tame your little read love machine

[Chorus]

Excuse me but I need a mouth like yours
To help me forget the girl that just walked out my door
Funny but it seems that you're alone like me
If you are go, let's come see what we can see

Oh, darlin' if you're free four a couple of hours (free for a couple of hours)
If you ain't busy for the next seven years (next seven years)

There ain't nothin' wrong if it feels all right
I won't stop until the morning light
Let's pretend we're married and go all night, tonight

Ooh-eee-sha-sha-koo-koo-yeah

Excuse me but I need your chemistry
Don't you want to be my fantasy?
My girl's gone and she don't care at all
And if she did, so what?
C'mon baby, let's b-b-ball

Oh, little darlin' if you're free four a couple of hours (free for a couple of hours)
If you ain't busy for the next seven years (next seven years)
Or hours, oh, let's pretend we're married and go all night
There ain't nothin' wrong if it feels all right
I won't stop until the morning light
Let's pretend we're married and go all night, tonight

Ooh-eee-sha-sha-koo-koo-yeah
All the hippies sing together

Let's just pretend we're married, tonight

Excuse me but I need a mouth like yours
To help me forget the girl that just walked out my door
Let's pretend we're married and do it all night
I won't stop until the morning light
Let's pretend we're married and go all night

Oh, little darlin' if you're free for a couple of hours (free for a couple of hours)
If you ain't busy for the next seven years (next seven years)
Oh darlin', let's pretend we're married and go all night

And if she did, so what, c'mon baby, let's ball

I want to f*ck you so bad it hurts, it hurts, it hurts
I want to, I want to, I want to, I want to, I want to, I want to, I want to f*ck you
Yeah, I want to, I want to, I want to want to, I want to f*ck you
Look here Marsha, I'm not sayin' this just to be nasty
I sincerely want to f*ck the taste out of your mouth
Can you relate?

My girl's gone and she don't care at all
And if she did, I wouldn't care, let's ball

(Whatever you heard about me is true)
(I change the rules and do what I want to do)
(I'm in love with God, he's the only way)
('Cause you and I know we gotta die some day)
(If you think I'm crazy, you're probably right)
(But I'm gonna have fun every motherf*ckin' night)
(If you like to fight, you're a double-drag fool)
(I'm goin' to another life, how 'bout you?)

Automatic

You ask me if I love you, it's automatic
'Cause every time you leave me, I die, that's automatic too
You ask me to forgive you, when you know, I'm just an addict
So stop the music baby, you know, you're all I want to do
(Hey)
A-U-T-O-matic, just tell me what to do, ooh
A-U-T-O-matic, I'm so in love with you

You ask me if I'll kiss you, it's automatic
And if you cry, me cry, boo-hoo, that's automatic too, ooh
I would never leave you, no matter what you do
Stop the music baby, you know, I'm an automatic fool
(Hey)
A-U-T-O-matic, just tell me what to do (and don't stop)
A-U-T-O-matic, oh, I'm so in love with you

I'll rub your back forever, it's automatic (A-U-T-O-matic)
I'll look for a needle in a haystack, that's automatic too, ooh (A-U-T-O-matic)
I'll go down on you all night long, it's automatic (I will, yes I will babe)
And even when I'm right, I'll be wrong, that's automatic to (A-U-T-O-matic)
(Hey)
(A-U-T-O-matic, just tell me what to do)
Tell me what to do, babe
(A-U-T-O-matic, so in love with you)
(Hey) so in love with you, yeah (A-U-T-O-matic, just tell me what to do)
Tell me what to do, babe (A-U-T-O-matic, so in love with you)
So in love with you, baby, yeah (hey) (A-U-T-O-matic) alright, alright (just tell me what to do)
Tell me what to do baby (A-U-T-O-matic) yeah, yeah, yeah (so in love with you)
Whoo (hey)
(A-U-T-O-matic)
(A-U-T-O-matic)

C'mon baby
A-U-T-O-matic, tell me what to do
A-U-T-O-matic
So in love with you

Don't say no man has ever tasted your ice cream
Baby, you're the purple star in the night supreme
You'll always be a virgin for no man deserves your love
I only pray that when you dream, I'm the one you dream of
I pray that when you dream, you dream of how we kissed, not with our lips but with our souls
Stop me if I bore you
Why is it that I think we'd be so good in bed?
Can you hear me., why do I love you so much?
It's strange, I'm more comfortable around you when I'm naked, can you hear me?
I wonder if you have any mercy, don't torture me

(Stop the music baby, automatic fool)

When it comes to you I'm automatic baby
There's no one else like me
I'm the best you'll ever find
No-one else could understand you, you're to complex
They say nothing's perfect, but they don't know you
That's automatic too
Can you hear me?
(A-U-T-O-matic) yes, I'm addicted to your pleasure
I'm addicted to your pain
It's automatic (A-U-T-O-matic)
Automatically insane
Undress me (A-U-T-O-matic)
(A-U-T-O-matic)
Hey (A-U-T-O-matic)
(A-U-T-O-matic)
(A-U-T-O-matic)
(A-U-T-O-matic)
(Hey)
Fasten your seat belts
Prepare for takeoff

(I remember how you kissed me, not with your lips but with your soul)
(With you I'm never bored, talk to me some more)
(I can hear you, I'm going to have to torture you now)

Something In The Water (Does Not Compute)

Some people tell me I got great legs
Can't figure out why U make me beg

'Cuz why else would a woman wanna treat a man so bad?

Some people think I'm kinda cute
But that don't compute when it comes 2 Y-O-U

Somethin' mama don't compute (Don't not compute)
What's the hangup? What's the scam?
Guess U think I'm just another 1...1 of your fans

Somethin' honey don't compute (Don't not compute)

Must be something in the water they drink
It's been the same with every girl I've had
Must be something in the water U drink
'Cuz why else would a woman wanna treat a man so bad?

I've got 2 get 2 U, baby
Some people think I'm kinda smart
Why must a fella stop with U before he starts?
It don't compute, mama (Does not compute)
Somethin' don't compute (Don't not compute)
I'd buy U clothing, buy U fancy cars
But U gotta talk 2 me, baby, tell me who U really r

Must be something in the water they drink
It's been the same with every girl I've had
Must be something in the water U drink
Why else would a woman wanna treat a man so bad?

Free

Don't sleep 'til the sunrise, listen 2 the falling rain
Don't worry 'bout tomorrow, don't worry 'bout your pain
Don't cry unless you're happy, don't smile unless you're blue
Never let that lonely monster take control of U

Be glad that U r free
Free 2 change your mind
Free 2 go most anywhere, anytime
Be glad that U r free
There's many a man who's not
Be glad 4 what U had baby, what you've got
Be glad 4 what you've got

I know (my?) heart is beating, my drummer tells me so
If U take your life 4 granted, your beating heart will go
So don't sleep until you're guilty, 'cuz sinners all r we
There's others doing far worse than us, so be glad that U r free

Be glad that U r free
Free 2 change your mind
Free 2 go most anywhere, anytime
Be glad that U r free
There's many a man who's not
Be glad 4 what U had baby, what you've got
Be glad 4 what you've got

Soldiers are a marching, they're writing brand new laws
Will we all fight together 4 the most important cause?
Will we all fight 4 the right 2 be free?
Free (Be glad that U r free)
Free 2 change my mind (Free 2 change your mind)
Free 2 go most anywhere, anytime (Free 2 go most anywhere,anytime)

Back to: Prince


1999 is the fifth studio album by the American singer-songwriter and musician Prince, released on October 27, 1982, by Warner Bros. Records. It became his first album to be recorded with his band the Revolution. 1999's critical and commercial success propelled Prince to a place in the public psyche and marked the beginning of two years of heightened fame via his following releases.

1999 was Prince's first top 10 album on the Billboard 200, charting at number nine upon release, and was fifth in the Billboard Year-End Albums of 1983. "1999", a protest against nuclear proliferation, was a Billboard Hot 100 top 20 hit, peaking at number 12. It has since become one of Prince's most recognizable compositions. "Delirious" reached number eight on the Billboard Hot 100, while "Little Red Corvette" peaked at number six, becoming Prince's highest charting US single at the time. "International Lover" was also nominated for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance at the 26th Grammy Awards, which was Prince's first Grammy Award nomination.

1999 received widespread acclaim from critics, and was seen as Prince's breakthrough album. On March 24, 1999, 1999 was certified quadruple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Following Prince's death in 2016, the album re-entered the Billboard 200 and peaked at number seven, besting its original performance on the chart thirty-three years earlier. A re-release and remaster of the album, including 35 previously unreleased recordings, was released in November 2019.

1999 has been ranked as one of the greatest albums of all time by several publications and organizations. The music videos for both "1999" and "Little Red Corvette" received heavy rotation on MTV, making Prince one of the first black artists to be prominently featured on the television channel.

According to the Rolling Stone Album Guide (2004), "1999 may be Prince's most influential album: Its synth-and-drum machine-heavy arrangements codified the Minneapolis sound that loomed over mid-'80s R&B and pop, not to mention the next two decades' worth of electro, house, and techno." It is also included on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. In 2008, the album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
