Live It Up — John Legend

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
Or going to Mama’s house to make a phone call
No, we don’t have to struggle at all

‘Cause now every day is feeling like Friday
I’m getting paid and doing it 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
We’ll party through the rest of the weekend
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

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
So we gotta live it up
So we can just celebrate, there’s no more pain
Raise your glass and feel no shame
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
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

Oh, it’s time to celebrate, baby
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
It’s time to celebrate, baby
Yeah, we gotta live it up
