  • Ooh-la-la, the world's on fire
    All my friends are getting high
    I just want my microphone
    My microphone

    I walk the streets at night
    With monsters in my mind
    They say you best be quiet
    I like it, like it
    No, I won't shut my mouth
    That's not what I'm about
    You know I built this house
    I like it, like it

    So boom, check one, check one, two, three
    Is anybody here listening?
    Hear me now, hear me now

    Ooh-la-la, the world's on fire
    All my friends are getting high
    I just want my microphone
    My microphone

    Turn me up a little bit louder, louder
    Just a little bit louder, now
    I just want my microphone
    My microphone
    Turn me up a little bit louder, louder
    Just a little bit louder, now
    I just want my microphone
    My microphone

    They say I'm too damn loud
    Like boys in London Town
    Because I won't chill out
    I like it, like it
    They say I talk too proud
    I say I'm too profound
    Because I won't back down
    When the clock is ticking like a time tomb

    So boom, check one, check one, two, three
    Is anybody here listening?
    Hear me now, hear me now

    Ooh-la-la, the world's on fire
    All my friends are getting higher
    I just want my microphone
    My microphone

    Turn me up a little bit louder, louder
    Just a little bit louder, now
    I just want my microphone
    My microphone
    Turn me up a little bit louder, louder
    Just a little bit louder, now
    I just want my microphone
    My microphone

    Turn me up a little bit louder, louder
    Just a little bit louder, now
    Turn me up a little bit louder in my soul
    Turn me up a little bit louder, louder
    Just a little bit louder, now
    Turn me up a little bit louder in my bones
    Turn me up a little bit louder, louder
    Just a little bit louder, now
    Turn me up a little bit louder in my soul

    My, my, my, my microphone
    My, my, my, my microphone
    (Microphone)

    Turn me up a little bit louder, louder
    Just a little bit louder, now
    Turn me up a little bit louder in my bones
    Turn me up a little bit louder, louder
    Just a little bit louder, now
    Turn me up a little bit louder in my soul
