    Dis is, the point when I need everybody get to the dance floor
    It's like that why'all (that why'all), that why'all (that why'all)
    Da da da da, I like that why'all (that why'all)
    It's like that why'all (that why'all), that why'all (that why'all)
    Like da da da da, I like that why'all (that why'all) MC

    [Mariah]
    I came to have a party
    Open up the Bacardi
    Feeling so hot tamale
    Boy, I know you 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

    [Bridge]
    'cause it's my night
    No stress, no fights
    I'm leavin it all behind
    No tears, no time to cry
    Just makin the most of life

    [Chorus]
    Everybody is livin it up
    All the fellas keep lookin' at us (cuz)
    Me and my girls on the floor like what
    While the DJ keeps on spinnin the cut
    It's like that why'all (that why'all), that why'all (that why'all)
    It's like da da da da, I like that why'all (that why'all)
    It's like that why'all (that why'all), that why'all (that why'all)
    It's like da da da da, I like that why'all (that why'all)

    [2]
    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

    [Bridge]
    'cause it's my night
    No stress, no fights
    I'm leavin it all behind
    No tears (no tears), no time to cry
    Just makin the most of life

    [Chorus]
    Everybody is livin it up
    All the fellas keep lookin at us (cuz)
    Me and my girls on the floor like what
    While the DJ keeps on spinnin the cut
    It's like that why'all (that why'all), that why'all (that why'all)
    It's like da da da da, I like that why'all (that why'all)
    It's like that why'all (that why'all), that why'all (that why'all)
    It's like da da da da, I like that why'all (that why'all)

    [Bridge]
    'cause it's my night (it's my, it's my night)
    No stress, no fights
    I'm leaving it all behind
    No tears (no tears), no time to cry
    Baby, I'm making the most of life

    [Chorus]
    Everybody is livin it up (I said everybody)
    All the fellas keep lookin at us (lookin at us)
    Me and my girls on the floor like what
    While the DJ keeps on spinning the cut
    It's like that why'all (that why'all), that why'all (that why'all)
    It's like da da da da, I like that why'all (that why'all)
    It's like that why'all (that why'all), that why'all (that why'all)
    It's like da da da da, I like that why'all (that why'all)

    This is my night

    [Fatman Scoop]
    Let's Go Now (what), let's go now (what)
    Here we go now (what), here we go now (what)
    Let's Go Now (what), let's go now (what)
    Here we go now (what), here we go now (what)
