Ooh, everybody says
That the country's in a mess
And that soon will come the day
But she's making plans to stay, plans to stay
And it doesn't mean a thing
If you can't make it sing
There's no need to destroy
You know that power comes from unity
C'mon!

(We're gonna celebrate)
We're gonna celebrate
(We're gonna celebrate)
We're gonna celebrate
'Cause this party's overdue
It's the day after you

Everybody says
That this country's in a mess
And they're waiting for the day
But she's making plans to stay
Plans to stay

Well, I have never seen a soul
From the very young to the very old
Who hasn't got a story
And it's time their story was told
If you're laughing in the face
Of love and happiness
Taking money, losing hope
Then I'm sorry but the joke's on you
Oh-wee!

(We're gonna celebrate)
We're gonna celebrate, baby
(We're gonna celebrate)
This party's overdue the day after you

Ow!
Whoo!

We're gonna celebrate, baby
(We're gonna celebrate)
C'mon and celebrate
(We're gonna celebrate)
We're gonna celebrate, baby
(We're gonna celebrate)

When you're not around
We're gonna celebrate, now
It ain't too late
We're gonna celebrate, now
Got to get together, baby
C'mon and celebrate the day after you

It doesn't mean a thing
If you can't make it sing

Well, we just got to get together
And celebrate
We just got to get together
Got to educate and activate
And educate and activate
Educate and activate
Educate and activate

It'll soon be nine and can't believe
That people behave so graciously
It's been eight long years in the wilderness

Got to get together...
