  • I love it when you just don't care
    I love it when you dance like there's nobody there
    So when it gets hard, don't be afraid
    We don't care what them people say
    I love it when you don't take no
    I love it when you do what you want 'cause you just said so
    Let them all go home, we out late
    We don't care what them people say

    We don't have to be ordinary
    Make your best mistakes
    'Cause we don't have the time to be sorry
    So baby be the life of the party
    I'm telling you to take your shot it might be scary
    Hearts are gonna break
    'Cause we don't have the time to be sorry
    So baby be the life of the party

    Together we can just let go
    Pretending like there's no one else here that we know
    Slow dance fall in love as the club track plays
    We don't care what them people say

    We don't have to be ordinary
    Make your best mistakes
    'Cause we don't have the time to be sorry
    So baby be the life of the party
    I'm telling you to take your shot it might be scary
    Hearts are gonna break
    'Cause we don't have the time to be sorry
    So baby be the life of the party

    Come out tonight, come out tonight
    There's no one standing in your way
    Come out tonight, come out tonight
    We don't care what them people say
    We don't care what them people say

    We don't have to be ordinary
    Make your best mistakes
    'Cause we don't have the time to be sorry
    So baby be the life of the party
    I'm telling you to take your shot it might be scary
    Hearts are gonna break
    'Cause we don't have the time to be sorry
    So baby be the life of the party

    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    Life of the party
    So don't let them keep you down
    Oh you know you can't give up
    'Cause we don't have the time to be sorry
    So baby be the life of the party Writer/s: Ido Zmishlany, Scott Harris Friedman
