"1984" lyrics - ANAIS MITCHELL


Down at headquarters, there's a big database
With black and white photos of the side of your beautiful face
And your library record, and all your test scores
And an invitation to party like it's 1984

Baby, don't look so nervous, they just want the facts
And it's all written out in the USA PATRIOT act
'Cause we don't take no chances in a nation at war
So tonight we're gonna party like it's 1984

Oh, baby, what did I tell you about the house being bugged?
They can hear us making breakfast, they can hear us making love
But excuse me a minute- Big Brother's at the door
And he's ready to party like it's 1984

You know you're my one and only; you always have been
Sure is gonna be lonely after I turn you in
So I'll wait till tomorrow to file my report
And tonight we can party
Oh, tonight we're gonna party
Yeah, tonight we can party like it's 1984
