Numan, Gary - 1999 Lyrics




I was dreamin' when I wrote this
Forgive me if it goes astray
But when I woke up this mornin'
Coulda' 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

Two thousand zero zero, party over
Two thousand zero zero, oops, out of time
Zero zero, party over
Tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999

I was dreamin' when I wrote this
So sue me if I go to 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

Two thousand zero zero, party over
Two thousand zero zero, oops, out of time
Zero zero, party over
Tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999

If U didn't come to party,
don't bother knockin' on my door, no
I got a lion in my pocket,
and baby he's ready to roar
Everybody's got a bomb,
Could all die any day
But before I get to heaven,
I'll dance my life away

Two thousand zero zero, party over
Two thousand zero zero, oops, out of time
Zero zero, party over
Tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999

Party...

Numan, Gary 1999 Comments
  1. Steve Hodgetts

    Love Numan but this was shockingly bad and he would tell you the same

  2. Chris A.

    Alternative title: - "Tonight I'm going to party like I've got 19.99 to spend".

  3. Chris A.

    A white monotone robot singing A soul genius's dance classic. What could go wrong? (Note: - it did). To be fair to Gaz though, Prince covering 'Are Friends Electric' would have been just as horrifying.

  4. Exceller8

    This is really, really BAD!! 👎🏻👎🏻

  5. Sarah Ke

    Das ist von Prince viel besser...nichts gegen Gary Numan

  6. trent davis

    I love Gary and this song, but this isn't good, sorry Gary.

  7. Steven White

    the decision to sing the chorus differently was the biggest mistake otherwise it would've been pretty good

  9. Kris Keogh

    Given it another listen it sounds like this song influences the Outland track "Icehouse"

    Don't break
    My heart

  10. evolutionary transgression

    something's wrong with my ears

  11. Gibson Weasel

    when women started singing over Gary! that was his low point!! I think he was just hanging on with no time to think!! but later on! he came back!! and was Numan again :)

    Exceller8

    Gibson Weasel Nine Inch Numan maybe. 🙄🙄🙄

  12. Dani Kahn

    Not bad.

  13. Marc D

    This just didn't work, which is odd because Numan's cover of "U Got The Look" is awesome.

  14. Dark Vader

    Prince please come back. This is disgusting.

    Ryan Hunter

    DARK VADER
    Indeed, but Gary himself acknowledges this. Prince's music was quite cheesey, Gary's was so dark, Gothic, and very sci fi. Not a good mix.

  15. Andy McH

    Just revisited this. Oh god.

    Ryan Hunter

    Andy McH Cleanse yourself with his earlier and later albums because believe me this is NOT what Gary Numan stands for

  16. David Buck

    I added this to my compilation of the best Prince cover versions found on YouTube called the Ultimate Prince Tribute Cover Song Playlist.

  17. Andy McH

    As a mark of respect to Prince I have not shared this on Facebook.

    Sam V

    +Andy McH lol... ;-P

    Thomas Hawtin

    Really?

    Andy McH

    Thomas Hawtin well not for a few months!

  18. Paul Denman

    Bless him; Gary's lowest point :'(
    Thank 'god' he got over it when that wench, Trace, left him!

  19. ebbhead20

    Pure shite..

  20. Will Smith

    I really liked this cover.  I knew he had originally planned to put it on it but it was cut.  I'm glad to see it surfaced on later releases.

    EyesWideOpenDevushka23

    Will Smith Gary put it on the original CD EP as a B-side way back when. I still have my copy.
