When the world is on your shoulder
If you can't hang with the feelin'
'Cause we're the party people night and day

And just enjoy yourself
Life ain't so bad at all
Life ain't so bad at all (live life off the wall)

'Cause there ain't no sin in folks all getting loud
There there ain't no one who's gonna put you down
Livin' crazy that's the only way
So tonight gotta leave that nine to five upon the shelf
Groove, let the madness in the music get to you
If you live it off the wall
Live your life off the wall (live it off the wall)
Do what you want to do
It's time to come alive

Gotta let that fool loose deep inside your soul
Better do it now before you get too old
Livin' crazy that's the only way
So tonight gotta leave that nine to five upon the shelf
Groove, let the madness in the music get to you
If you live it off the wall
Live your life off the wall (live it off the wall)
So tonight gotta leave that nine to five upon the shelf
Come on and groove (yeah) and let the madness in the music get to you
If you live it off the wall
So tonight gotta leave that nine to five upon the shelf
Come on and groove (yeah) and let the madness in the music get to you
If you live it off the wall
