(This is international)
(Big mega radio smasher)

I had the time of my life
And I've never felt this way before
And I swear this is true
And I owe it all to you

Oh I had the time of my life
And I've never felt this way before
And I swear this is true
And I owe it all to you
You-you-you-you-you
You-you-you-you-you
You-you-you-you-you-you-y-y-y-y-you
Dirty bit

Dirty bit

I-I came up in here to rock
Light a fire, make it hot
I don't wanna take no pictures
I just wanna take some shots
So come on, let's go
Let's lose control
Let's do it all night
'Til we can't do it no more

People rockin' to the sound
Turn it up and watch it pound
We gon' rock it to the top
Until the roof come burnin' down
Yeah, it's hot in here
The temperature
Has got these ladies
Gettin' freakier

I got freaky, freaky, baby
I was chillin' with my ladies
I didn't come to get bougie
I came here to get crazy
I was born to get wild
That's my style
If you didn't know that
Well, baby, now you know now

'Cause I'm
Havin'
A good Time
With you
I'm tellin' you

I had the time of my life
And I've never felt this way before
And I swear this is true
And I owe it all to you

Oh I had the time of my life
And I've never felt this way before
And I swear this is true
And I owe it all to you
You-you-you-you-you
You-you-you-you-you
You-you-you-you-you-you-y-y-y-y-you
Dirty bit

Dirty bit

All-all these girls, they like my swagger
They callin' me Mick Jagger
I be rollin' like a Stone
Jet-setter, jet-lagger
We ain't messin' with no maggots
Messin' with the baddest
Chicks in the club
Honey, what's up?

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who's the baddest of them all?
Yeah, it's gotta be the Apl
I'm the mack daddy, y'all
Haters better step back
Ladies (don't load your act)
I'm the party application
Rockin' just like that

(This is international)
(Big mega radio smasher)

'Cause I'm
Havin'
A good Time
With you
I'm tellin' you

I-I-I-I had
The time of my li-I-ife
And I've never felt this way before-fore
And I swear-wear
This is tru-u-ue
And I owe it all to you-ou

Oh, I-I-I-I had
The time of my li-I-I-ow
And I've never felt this way before-fore
And I swear-wear
This is tru-u-ue
And I owe it all to you-ou

I-I-I-I had
The time of my li-I-ife
And I've never felt this way before-fore
And I swear-wear
This is tru-u-ue
And I owe it all to you-ou

Oh, I-I-I-I had
The time of my li-I-I-ow
And I've never felt this way before-fore
And I swear-wear
This is tru-u-ue
And I owe it all to you-ou
Dirty bit

Welcome, this is the beginning
For every ending is mega starter
When they bring the dark we bring the light
Lets go

    General CommentI have to say that is seems like the continuation of a downfall for the Black Eyed Peas. This song obviously uses the chorus of "(I've Had)The Time of my life," a song about love and being at the peak of your life. Black Eyed Peas turned that tranquil meaning into just meaning less, I want to party attitude.

    It exemplifies pop music of today with it's occasional use of low tone vocals, musical stutters (if you can call them musical), recycling of words from other pop songs. It's nothing new, but it lets the public know that the Peas have really knocked themselves off of the top-notch productions of their early 2000's material.

    "A-All these girls they like my swagger
    They calling me Mc Jagger
    I be rolling like a stone"

    This line is the answer to one of Ke$ha's pop hits. I hope the Peas haven't sunk that low.

    The song also uses references to popular apple products, also seen in Sean Kingston's "replay." Perhaps because it's popular and he can rhyme.

    I think the only phrase used in this song that hasn't popularly been used before is:

    "Cause I'm having
    A good time with you"

    Which shows that Peas are desperate to make another pop hit to play at parties, focusing on quantity, not quality, the downfall of popular music these days.

    Song MeaningWhat does "dirty bit" mean here? The usual meaning[1] seems unlikely. Is the singer informing that "in case you were wondering why this beat is sounding so rough, it's because I've set the dirty bit in the sequencer"? Or what?

    [1] a boolean flag indicating that a cache entry is out of date

    General Commenti'm listening to the instrumental version of this song atm, may i say that the electrohouse bit is damn-azz catchy. ba da da ba da da da. this song is retribution of the Y nation i say, punishment for all young hipster sheep, who think electronica sucks... may the world of mainstream music revert to good old trance and techno hah!

    Lyric CorrectionIts catchy but puttin it bluntly its ******* ****.

    Just one correction:

    'They calling me Mick Jagger
    I be rollin like a stone'

    As in Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones :)
