I feel I'm burning up with fever
The fire's feeling really good tonight
But it's all right
'cause I'm gonna see Sahara Jack and Suntan Sally
Somebody tells me even Tommy's coming down
Tonight, If Gina says it's all right

I'm gonna see those senoritas lying under the sun
Yeah they're greasing it up with their stereos on
You know I want to be their blanket, gonna tell every girl
Hey baby you're the one

Whoa, tell the boys I'm on my way
I got the radio blasting in my old man's Chevrolet
I got a party in my pocket,
And you know I just got paid
And I'm feeling fine, it's 99 in the shade.

When the sun goes down, that's when the street heats up
Senorita, margarita, fills your empty cup tonight
She makes me feel so right
A good time here doesn't cost much money
Just a little sweet talking, let the pretties in the party
And you're set for life
Or one hell of a night

I can see those sons of beaches
With the surf and the sand and they're living it up
Yu know life ain't so tough
So get me in the action
Gotta tell every girl she's the one


And I'm feeling fine, it's 99 in the shade
(I can almost taste it!)

99, 99, 99
99 in the shade
99, 99,
99 in the, whoa!


I got the radio cranked in my old man's Chevrolet
