  • Girl, I can't understand it, why you want to hurt me
    After all the things I've done for you
    I buy you champagne and roses, put diamonds on your finger
    Diamonds on your finger
    Still you hang out all night
    What am I to do?

    My girl wants to party all the time
    Party all the time
    Party all the time
    My girl wants to party all the time
    Party all the time

    She parties all the time, ooh hoo

    Party all the time
    She likes to party all the time, party all the time, ooh hoo
    Party all the time, she likes to party all the time
    Party all the time

    Girl, I've seen you in clubs just hanging out and dancing
    You give your number to every man you see
    You never come home at night because you're out romancing
    I wish you'd bring some of your love home to me

    But my girl wants to party all the time
    Party all the time
    Party all the time
    My girl wants to party all the time
    Party all the time

    My girl wants to party all the time
    Party all the time
    Party all the time
    My girl wants to party all the time
    Party all the time, yeah

    (Party, party, party) she likes to party all the time
    Ooh ooh, hoo hoo hoo

    She likes to party all the time
    She lets her hair down
    She likes to party down
    She likes to party
    She likes to party down (ooh ooh, hoo hoo hoo)

    Party all the time, oh, now get down and party, yeah Writer/s: Rick James

  • Tnosugar from BelgradeDoes anyone know who the rest of the people in the video are?
  • F. Lawless (flawless) from Earth"Iris from Florida, Usa" thank you SO MUCH for writing this! It is a boon to get to read about those so gifted by GOD. Can't say it was used in the way the LORD would, LOL, but, WOW, that was VERY NICE to read. If it makes you feel any better, with regards to "old scandals" or "old headlines," I was around back then and before, and have NO IDEA what cases in which you refer. I have NO NEED to look them up online either! All I remember is Mr. James' immense talent, and his CLEAR HUMOR/KNOWLEDGE that he was there to ENTERTAIN and lift people out of their seats and cares for the moment. Unlike the entertainers of today, who come in and think that we, the public owe them anything save equal respect, privacy, and fairness (in hearsay from the media...i.e. "Do unto others as you would have for others do unto you," were YOUR face being blasted on television, computer, and smartphone screens with possibly spurious headlines...sole intent being to ruin you, humiliate you and to dim your [spot]light. The irony being those that write such headlines...again...I'm sure people will be dancing to Mr. James and his contemporaries--knowing their names, and rediscovering their hits as time continues. As for those who would to hurt and harm them (hypocrites, probably)...their names...their contributions to life (bringing others down)...I mean...which would YOU rather be known for: making people forget their cares in a healthful way (dancing rather than drinking or drugging or engaging in other potentially harmful behaviors--I've NEVER had to do ANY to enjoy Mr. James' hits as a child or as an adult!) and providing fun memories for people throughout their lives for generations OR being the guy or gal who made money BY sullying and shaming those whose only profession was to make other people...happy? One set of names has a tendency to outlast and surpass...the other...just gets replaced by yet another cog in the machine--no more talented or without qualms or cares than the next forgotten person who will replace that miserable "finger-pointer" in the future. Last time I checked, the LORD GOD appointed ONE Judge over man and His profession was that of a carpenter, a fisherman, a street preacher, a charity provider, a miracle maker, etc. Not one job did "that Fellow" have that sounded like "journalist" or "TV news smut-slinging 'news' reporter..." but I mean...I haven't read all of His book (The Holy Bible) so maybe He (the Lord Jesus Christ) holds those titles in the future....-->(sarcasm). Thanks for writing, again, NONE of the cool people on this planet--save God's Son and a handful of others have been referred to as "perfect" by GOD Himself--so--I wouldn't worry too much about what a bunch of IMPERFECT people think about another...imperfect...human being! -Much love to you, Iris from Florida, USA, and thanks again for your excellently written comment. It's a true treasure-chest find for those who see the gold in and the priceless jewel value in folk like Mr. James and SOOOO many countless other "human beings!"
  • Iris from Florida, UsaRick James was a very talented and intelligent man, one who was well-acquainted since birth with the reality of human pain and suffering. He developed into a prolific song-writer and a master of the musical rhythmic beat -- a transcendental, natural medicine for the soul in pain; a higher vibrational, healing force that makes people want to get up and keep on; to dance the dance of life, to continue onward with life. Rick knew what he needed to do to help his young friend, Eddie Murphy, achieve a 'hit' record. The #2 position for 3 weeks straight is nothing to scoff at. It was and still is particularly appealing to people who enjoy movement and dance. Rick was well aware that dancing and dance clubs were still extremely popular at the time. Rick also helped his Mary Jane Girls have hit songs which he wrote, arranged and produced for them as well, including "In My House." Rick also wrote, arranged and produced hit songs for other singers. Rick James albums have platinum and gold among them, including triple platinum. Rick James was a born musical genius, performer and showman. He and his equally marvelous Stone City Band gave exciting, unforgettable concerts, filled to capacity with fans who knew they'd be receiving much more than their ticket's monetary worth, just as with all of the albums and singles. There are even lesser known gems to be found and enjoyed in each of the albums. Rick could be very generous to others; that was just one of his endearing qualities and one that most people don't know was a major factor in what happened -- and didn't happen -- in those two, media-publicized and sensationalized legal cases of the early 1990s which resulted in much widespread, harmful, non-factual misinformation among the general public about Rick James as regards those two cases and which, sadly, still persists to this day. May Rick James have rest in peace and love.
