"Party Poison" as written by and Frank Iero Bob Bryar....
Everybody pay attention to me
I got the answer
I got the answer
We'll rock it to ya with a capital G
So get your hands up
So get your hands up

Hide your eyes, we're gonna shine tonight
Sub-atomic never get the best of me
Ain't a DJ gonna save my soul?
I sold it long ago for rock 'n roll
Drop the needle when the tape deck blows
I gotta shout this out so everybody knows

This ain't a party
Get off the dance floor
You want the get down
Here comes the gang war

You're doing alright
I got the answer
'Cause all the good times
They give you cancer

If we were all like you in the end
Oh, we'd be killing ourselves by sleeping in
So hit the lights I'll do it again
And keep your cars and your dogs
And your famous friends, well alright

Slide up the faders when the cabinet slams
And get your hands up, now get your hands up
Light up the stage and watch me kick out the jams
So throw your fist up, now throw your fist up

Ain't nobody gonna take my life
Ain't nobody gonna get the best of me
Ain't a preacher gonna save me now
Grab a seat, I'm gonna show you how
Everybody hit the pyro cue
We're gonna blow this off and show you what we do

This ain't a party
Get off the dance floor
You want the get down
Here comes the gang war

You're doing alright
I got the answer
'Cause all the good times
They give you cancer

If we were all like you in the end
Well, we'd be killing ourselves by sleeping in
So hit the lights I'll do it again
So keep your cars and your dogs
And your famous friends, well alright
Well alright, well alright

Alright
We came to party, kill the party tonight
We came to party, kill the party tonight
Let's go

This ain't a party
Get off the dance floor
You want the get down
Here comes the gang war

You're doing alright
I got the answer
'Cause all the good times
Gimme, gimme good times people tonight

This ain't a party
Get off the dance floor
You wanna get down
Here comes the encore

If we were all like you in the end
Oh, we'd be killing ourselves by sleeping in
So hit the lights I'll do it again

So everybody get down
Till the party breaks down (till the party breaks down)
Now everybody get down (now everybody get down)
Now everybody get down
'Til the party breaks down tonight

    TranslationThe Japanese parts are translated as follows:

    Minna!
    Kuruma wa mantan dashi
    Su-tsuke-su (suitcase) ni wa bakudan tsumete-iru
    Jinsei wa mijikakute, iku michi wa kiken ga o-oi
    Dakara odorou

    "Everybody!
    The car is filled with gasoline.
    The suitcase is filled with bombs.
    Life is short, and the way to[i.e. future] has a lot of danger.
    So, let's dance!"

    Yuumei ni naritai no
    Majide
    E-n to ikitai
    Watashi wa bakuhatsu suru

    "You wanna be famous?
    Seriously?
    I wanna keep going forever.
    I'm gonna explode!"
    (Interestingly, 爆発する"bakuhatsu suru" is my favorite Japanese verb ever)

    So when the party gets out
    Minna de odorou
    Till the party breaks down
    Karada ga itaku naru made
    Now everybody get down
    Minna de odorou
    Now everybody get down
    Karada ga itaku naru made
    Till the party breaks down tonight
    Karada ga itaku naru made
    Karada ga itaku naru made

    "So when the party gets out.
    Let's dance together.
    Till the party breaks down.
    Till the body hurts.
    Now everybody get down.
    Let's dance together.
    Now everybody get down.
    Till the body hurts.
    Till the party breaks down tonight.
    Till the body hurts.
    Till the body hurts."

    Hope that helps!

    General CommentHahaha Okay. I updated the formerly hilariously misheard lyrics to the accurate ones from the CD booklet.

    General Commentto me this song is definitely about living life to the fullest, it's also about not letting partying consume your life and doing some work such as the lines "Oh, we'd be killing ourselves while sleeping in" and "And all the good times, they give you cancer". Also Iggy Pop and the Stooges refrences? first with the solo in the beginning and with the line "Street walking cheetah with a capital G" like the line in search and destroy "street walking cheetah with a heart full of napalm"

    General CommentI think the Japanese part makes it very comical . . . I love it.
    Kinda 80's cartoon stuff (like Kill Bill). Great concept -- the whole songs in the album seems to be a missile to today's music scene.

    For me, this song shows a violent attack to some preppy (popular) party kids . . . uncool guys getting revenge!!
    I like that idea.
    MCR always goes far from safe circle and tries to give big fist to popular lifestyle and crowd.

    Heil Gerard Arthur!!
