"Celebration" as written by and Paul Mark/green Madonna/oakenfold....
I think you wanna come over
Yeah I heard it through the grapevine
Are you drunk? Are you sober?
(Think about it)
Doesn't matter
And if it makes you feel good then I say do it
I don't know what you're waiting for

Feel my temperature rising
It's too much heat
I'm gonna lose control
Do you want to go higher?
Get closer to the fire
I don't what you're waiting for

I'm gonna party
(Yeah)
'Cause anybody just won't do
Let's get this started
(Yeah)
'Cause everybody wants to party with you

Boy you got a reputation
But you're gonna have to prove it
I see a little hesitation
Am I gonna have to show ya
That if it feels right
Get on your mark
Step to the beat boy
That's what its for

Put your arms around me
When it gets too hot we can go outside
But for now just come here
Let me whisper in your ear
An invitation to the dance of life

I'm gonna party
(It's a celebration)
'Cause anybody just won't do
Let's get this started
(No more hesitation)
'Cause everybody wants to party with you

Haven't I seen you somewhere before?
You look familiar
You wanna dance?
Yeah
I guess I just don't recognize you with your clothes on
What are you waiting for?

I'm gonna party
(It's a celebration)
'Cause anybody just won't do
Let's get this started
(No more hesitation)
'Cause everybody wants to party with you

Come join the party
(It's a celebration)
'Cause anybody just won't do
Let's get this started
(No more hesitation)
'Cause everybody wants to party with you

Boy you got it
(It's a celebration)
'Cause anybody just won't do
Let's get it started
(No more hesitation)
'Cause everybody wants to party with you
Boy you got it
'Cause anybody just won't do
Let's get it started
(No more hesitation)
'Cause everybody wants to party with you

    General CommentAt first I didn't think much of this song but after a few listens it's really starting to grow on me. It may not be one of her greatest songs, but I think it definately has some potential. It is rather catchy in some places of the song, especially: 'Yeah i heard it through the grapevine.' and 'Let me whisper in your ear'

    But, I think it's a good song. Will be a good song for the clubs. I think the meaning is that she's in a club and sees a guy that everyone likes, she wants to dance with him before anybody else does. Or something like that :)

    General Commentwatching the video and looking at the lyrics, this song is to me about letting go of all your inhibitions (and also values and morals) and just stepping into the stream of life.

    General CommentActually lyrics have connection with her past songs:


    Do you want to go higher? - The Power of Goodbye
    Put your arms around me - Fever
    Step to the beat - Into the Groove
    Get closer to the fire - Who's That Girl
    No more hesitation - Hung Up/4 Minutes
    Spoken part starts with "Haven't I seen you somewhere before" - Everybody

    General CommentA brilliant song Celebration is because it sums up what Madonna is all about! I Love its Hopeful and Optimistic message-"An Invitation to the Dance of Life...My Life and Music-it's a Celebration!" A brilliant way to Celebrate a Life! The Happiest Madonna Song Ever! If You Need It, Madonna's Got It! Rumor Has It That Celebration will be the Finale/Denouement/Encore of the MDNA Tour! Hail Madonna, Full of grace!
