I came to have a party
Open off that Bacardi
Feeling so hot tamale
Boy I know you're watchin' me
So what's it gonna be
Purple taking me higher
I'm lifted and I like it
Boy you got me inspired
Baby come and get it
If you're really feelin' me

Cause it's my night
No stress no fights
I'm leavin' it all behind
No tears no time to cry
Just making the most of life

Everybody is livin' it up
All the fellas keep lookin' at us
Cause me and my girls
On the floor like what
While the DJ keeps on spinnin' the cut
It's like that y'all (that y'all)
That y'all (that y'all)
It's like that a a that
A like that y'all (that y'all)

You like this and you know it
Caution, it's so explosive
Them chickens is ash and I'm lotion
Baby come and get it
Let me give you what you need
It's a special occasion
Mimi's emancipation
A cause for celebration
I ain't gonna let nobody's drama bother me

Cause it's my night
No stress no fights
I'm leavin' it all behind
No tears no time to cry
Just making the most of life

Everybody is livin' it up
All the fellas keep lookin' at us
Cause me and my girls
On the floor like what
While the DJ keeps on spinnin' the cut
It's like that y'all (that y'all)
That y'all (that y'all)
Like that a a that
A like that y'all (that y'all)

Boy I know you're watchin' me
So what's it gonna be

I'm lifted and I like it
Boy you got me inspired
Baby come and get it
If you're really feelin' me

Cause it's my night
No stress no fights
I'm leavin' it all behind
No tears no time to cry
Just making the most of life

Everybody is livin' it up

Fat Joe:
It's like that y'all, it's like fat y'all
Matter of fact, it's Cook Crack y'all
My new name is B.D.S.
Cause my shit keep spinnin' like B.B.F.
Soon as the dog 'rives or you see T.S.
On the side of them buses, probably the mall kids
Get on some Ying Yang shit and start whisperin'
(So many mamis is wantin' my bacon)
And she likes my raps cause my raps the best
And them cats is alright, but not like T.S.
April 26 is 'All Or Nothin'
And we gon' get it poppin' with some Storch production

Cause it's my night
No stress no fights
I'm leavin' it all behind
No tears no time to cry
Just making the most of life

Everybody is livin' it up
All the fellas keep lookin' at us
