  • Oooh! I got a call today, from my job up the block
    It was my boss to say, you know we like you a lot
    But we don't need you J, you daydream too much,
    Well man I'm glad ya'll let me go!

    'Cause with no 9 to 5, it's a brand new day!
    My rents due but I'm a party any way!
    I feel so alive, stress just faded away!
    It's time to live my own life!

    So, I'm a let it go!
    Gonna leave my worries behind!
    Gotta take control!
    I just came to have a good time!
    I'm a let it go, no time for stress on my mind!
    I'm a lettin go! Oooh I'm lettin go!

    That's right, left right
    I'm losing it to music, cameras, bright lights!
    I'm staying out all night
    Don't shove don't fight!
    Well make a million memories - all incredible!
    Cause with no 9 to 5 it's a brand new day!
    Got bills due, but I'm a party anyway
    I feel so alive! Stress just faded away
    It's time I live my own life!

    So, I'm a let it go!
    Gonna leave my worries behind!
    Gotta take control!
    I just came to have a good time!
    I'm a let it go, no time for stress on my mind!
    I'm a lettin go! Oooh I'm lettin go!
