You know we've been struggling for such a long time 
Working here and there just to get by 
It's finally time for me to get mine 

No more robbing Peter so we can pay Paul (oh no) 
Or going to Mama's house to make a phone call (no no) 
No we don't have to struggle at all 

'Cause now every day is feeling like Friday (Friday) 
I'm getting paid and doing it my way (my way) 
We're finally on our way 
Baby now it's time to celebrate 

Oh live it up 
We can go crazy 
Live it up 
You and me baby 
Live it up, live it up, live it up 
We're flying high 
Don't want to come down 
We'll let 'em know 
All over town and 
Live it up, live it up, live it up 

No more putting it in the layaway 
'Cause Boo I got the money today 
Come on and go to the mall and let's play 
Let's go raise a toast to the days ahead 
You can't take it with you when you're dead 
You might as well enjoy it now instead 

Oh now, it's about to be a long evening (yeah yeah) 
We'll party through the rest of the weekend (come on) 
We're finally on our way 
Baby now it's time to celebrate 

Oh live it up 
We can go crazy 
Live it up 
You and me baby 
Live it up, live it up, live it up 
(Oh we're flying high) We're flying high 
Don't want to come down 
We'll let 'em know 
All over town and 
Live it up, live it up, live it up 

(We can fly so high 
In the moonlit sky 
'Cause there's no more cloudy days 
It's so beautiful 
When you feel the flow 
We can dance the night away) 

Do you remember when times were hard? 
Oh so hard 
Through it all 
We've come so far (ha-ha ha-ha ooh)
So we gotta live it up 
So we can just celebrate there's no more pain 
Raise your glass and feel no shame (ha-ha ha-ha ooh)
Oh so we gotta live it up 

Oh live it up 
We can go crazy 
Live it up 
You and me baby 
Live it up, live it up, live it up 
(Oh we're flying high) we're flying high 
Don't want to come down (yeah yeah) 
We'll let 'em know 
All over town and 
Live it up, live it up, live it up 

Oh, it's time to celebrate baby (ha-ha ha-ha ooh)
So, we don't have to worry no more 
We don't have to struggle no more baby

So does it feel good to you? 
I know it feels good to you 
we don't have worry no more 
We don't have to struggle no more (ha-ha ha-ha ooh)
It's time to celebrate baby (ha-ha ha-ha ooh)
Yeah we gotta live it up
