Madonna: Celebration Lyrics

Celebration (Album Version)

by Madonna
From the Album Celebration

I think you wanna come over, yeah I heard it through the grapevine.

Are you drunk or you sober? Think about it, doesn’t matter
and if it makes you feel good then I say do it,
I don’t know what you’re waiting for

Feel my temperature rising
There’s too much heat I’m gonna lose control
Do you want to go higher, get closer to the fire,
I don’t know what you’re waiting for

Come join the party, yeah
Coz anybody just won’t do.
Let’s get this started, yeah
Coz everybody wants to party with you.

Boy you got a reputation, but you’re gonna have to prove it
I see a little hesitation,
Am I gonna have to show you that if it feels right, get on your marks
Step to the beat boy that’s what it’s for

Put your arms around me
When it gets too hot, we can go outside
But for now just come here, let me whisper in your ear
An invitation to the dance of life

Come join the party, it’s a celebration
Anybody just won’t do
Let’s get this started, no more hesitation
Coz everybody wants to party with you

Haven’t I seen you somewhere before?
You look familiar…
You wanna dance? …Yeah.
I guess I just don’t recognize you with your clothes on… (laughs)
What are you waiting for?

Boy you’ve got it
Coz anybody just won’t do
Let’s get it started, no more hesitation
Coz everybody wants to party with you

  1. I would say this latest Madonna future-super-hit – yes, the song is amazing! I don’t know how she can do it!!! She seems just to decide “Now, I wanna make an amazing song”, and she does it!!! – sounds as performatic as Hung Up, rough as Lady Gaga’s Poker Face, “dirty” as the old party-Madonna-girl. Its a Celebration of life! It just keeps on playing into your mind even your player is off! It’s great!!! I loved it!!!

  2. Totally agree….The old party Madonna is back. If Djs and audiences are not fullfilled with this song, then they don’t deserve to live.

  3. I LOVE IT!!! I can imagine myself dancing this weekend all night..

    No wait… i think i’m going to begin right now!!!

    THANK G-d for Madonna!!! And her fantastic crew, etc.

  4. genuis track.
    she took a full circuit sound.put her own stamp on it.
    it will be international club-hit.
    brillant move…she’s genuis.

  5. Heyyyyy Madonnaaaaaa don’t loooose your road of reputation with such hilarius and easy songs i was expecting something with more inspiration extraordinary , so to cover the hardcandy’s potato ………………………………………………………………………………………………..

  6. Madonna has done it again! Girlfriend is about to turn 51 and she still gots it! You go lady! Houston, Texas loves you!

  7. @ madiexpert: I loved Hard Candy. It’s not a potato.

    This song is also amazing, it’s one of those can’t get out of your head ones!

  8. Omg!!! I just got celebration on amazon why I am so conected with Madonna music?? Is like for every song she has a secret message for me!!! I am in love with this song, is the celebration of the life of the music !!! You are amazing !!! The Queen is back again with something that make you dance all night long!!! What are you waiting for?

  9. trully, i don’t know how it really looks like this rythem she is doing right now, it’s like trans and metro beside dance. but trully it’s easy and TOO easy to be forgetable. it’s like the music that you always hear in the disco club which is mixed by other DJs and nobody knows it after. that’s too bad cause this is absolutely not madonna. holiday, into the groove, secret, take a bow, like a virgin and lucky star is not forgeteable at all, but this.. umm.. oh dear.

  10. genious.this is genious.bravo MADONNA.U PROVE ONCE AGAIN U CAN BE 50 BUT U HAVE A GENIOUS MIND

  11. great~!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Madge you are the queen of music!!!!!!!!!

  12. Madonna’s got her groove back!!! Awesome song. The Queen of Pop holds court and teaches all her wannabees (spears, ladygaga, mariah, etc.) how it’s done. Love the spoken lyrics in the middle of the song. Classic Madonna. She has a huge hit on her hands.

  13. Madge …
    im worldess …. ur just awsome gorgeous amazing

    the one and only Queen keep the glam
    you rockkkkkkkkkkkkk

  14. WOW!! I just can´t stop playing and dancing this song. JUST AMAZING!

  15. There are songs that have to grow on you for a few spins before we realize the rythmic genius that is Madonna! This song does it before even one full spin! Bravo Madonna!

  16. While I can’t deny the sheer catchiness of this song (after all, it *has* been stuck in my head for a few hours now)– I’m still struggling to find it as mindblowing as the rest of the fans. Choosing Oakenfold for this track guarantees that it would be a club hit, but simultaneously : choosing Oakenfold for this track guarantees that it just sounds like another Oakey suitcase in another trance-hall.

    I love its anthemic quality, and after several listens to the lyrics, I finally did convince myself that they are so self-referencial on purpose– ie, Madonna has, even for a second, finally stopped to look at the past and she how far she has come instead of just boldly forging a new path.

    I’ll be listening to this song a ton regardless… oh how I wish we could get a Stuart Price mix to make it all better… 🙂

  17. OMG i love this song!!!!!!

  18. Madge still rules and she’ll always do! This song really turns you on! After it’s gone it leaves you begging for more! Well now, who’s gonna fight Madonna. And if somebody has the nerve to do that she’ll fight you back with such a hit! Hats off!

  19. @ Miss Fitz: You’re so right. I want some Jacques Lu Cont Thin White Duke action on this one.

  20. modar_angham_syria

    I love it sooooo much , this song is free of defects , Madonna always gives a new level to the theme , Madonna’s celebration is not like any other one , it is the energy that never fades

    can’t wait for the cd to come out and get it in my hands

  21. Madonna has demostrated aonce again that she is de indisputed queen of pop, his song rocks so much and it has such a cool rythm. Way to go Madonna, can’t wait till the Celebration album comes to the stores.

  22. This song is the most coolest song ever because i’m a big, big fan.I can’t wait to put my hands on the new cd. I LOVE YOU MADONNA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CHINO.

  23. I love this song it’s just so catchy thanks to my dad (sergio luna) I know her shes the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. At first, I was dismayed as the song reminds me of almost every song I’ve heard in every gay bar I’ve ever been in (and that’s a lot of bars).

    A few spins later, I am in love – kind of like meeting someone at a bar. Go figure.

    Anyhoot, what the hell is up with iTunes USA? No promo on the main page and they’ve buried the single on her last page.

    WTF? Just wondering if anyone has info.

    ps. love the blog.

  25. AWESOME SONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. I am in utter disbelief. This song not only has me moving every fiber in my body, but Madonna has once again reached into my sole to cheer me on for life. When Madonna first came out I was a partying teenager like all my friends. Her message in the 80’s to celebrate party dance be free was all I lived for. Unlike other my friends, though, I lost site of the balance and became a circuit boy living only for the party dancing to drug and sex with Madonna in the background. Her messages in the 90’s that there’s more than just the party, there is a higher calling too, sometimes got my attention, but it was so hard. I became a major hard drug addict in the clubs and bathhouses eventually just ending up alone. I finally got it together a little bit around the time “Power Of Goodbye” came out. The fortress in that song was drugs for me, and I tried getting sober for the first time. It worked for a while, but even Madonna’s inspiration and teachings weren’t loud enough for me to hear, and I became like a roller coaster – a year of sobriety here, a day there, two months here, three years there, and now not even a minute, but I’m still dancing my ass off. This song has has gotten my attention once again, like so many of Madonna’s messages before, with the beat for my heat and the words of knowledge for my fighting soul. Think about it..I’m here In Los Angeles, partying with fiends (NOT friends) and strangers grasping for some happiness that I’ve made into a chemical suicidal dance wishing I had somehow evolved like all the others, and like Madonna, talks about. I went from innocent bumps in the stall and on the dancefloor to basically shooting poison into my veins not knowing where to turn. But THANKFULLY the BEAT the TRANCE the purposefully HYPNOTIC SWIRL of the genuis and higher power music has shaken me, grabbed my attention, and I’m reading the words. Madonna is just saying once and for all that life isn’t about being intoxicated and living alone alone in misery. The evolved are now on a much higher plane, still playing having fun, but being aware. I feel these these words are my final message. I don’t want to seem dllusional if I haven’t already, but it’s like Madonna saying stop killing yourself, join us, the fun and sober and the party people without the drugs.

    “An invitation to the dance of life
    Come join the party, it’s a celebration
    Anybody just won’t do
    Let’s get this started, no more hesitation
    Coz everybody wants to party with you” — and that’s a party with all of us together with love, making the world better, and that can’t involve drugs or include me if I do end up dying like I have so many times from drugs before.

    I’m gonna try to do it again, Dance to this INCREDIBLE MESSAGE MASTERPEICE of a song and put the prison of drugs down once and for all. Keep me in your prayers. My name is STEVE and I’m an addict.

  27. Hey Steve, you should look for the “Dubtronic Waiting For Remix”. It will take you even further than the other remixes.

  28. AMAZING, ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! I too feel every fiber of my entire being jumping with the beat of this song. I can’t get enough of it, I can’t wait for the Maxi CD. WOW!!!!! C’mon people let’s have a CELEBRATION, the one and only Madonna is BACK!!! I wasn’t so impressed with her last cd, though I liked several songs on it. I’m so glad she is taking herself, her true sound, to this new level. AMAZING AMAZING SONG!!!

  29. This is the most spectacular song that Madonna has done! I love this song! It’s wonderful!

  30. Wow. I’ve been a Madonna fan since she first started in the early 80s and this song is another mega-blaster-hit Jeezuz Where does she GET this stuff? From another planet?!
    Perfect and no surprise! It’s Madonna!
    Call me, Madonna!

  31. Steve… your message is very powerful, you can do it . It can be done, I was just like you, but have been clean for 8 years. Life is more important than the drug trust me.

  32. Got to dance to this. The single is out now so please download CELEBRATION from iTunes and

  33. Message to Steve:

    Hang in there. You are not alone. There are plenty of us who are lost or feel lost along the way. I’ve been in recovery for nine years and it is a constant struggle. I hope you are going to meetings. Much Love.


  34. great song love that old lady hahaahahah no she is super hor i want someone like that 51 years old and looking great love the song and love her even more hahahaahahah cant waight for her next concert

  35. To Steve:

    I totally relate to your story. I didn’t do drugs to become someone else, or to destroy myself. I did drugs to have fun and dance all night long for three nights in a row. And before too long, the shit would kick in, and I would end up totally and UTTERLY alone beating off to porn in some dark corner at a sex club. It was NOT what I signed up for. I’m now 2 and 1/2 years clean and sober, and I’ve gotten that spiritual shift that you also mentioned. Life is good.

    Interesting observation on the song. It sounded to me like M is talking about doing drugs. The getting higher, the temperature rising, the word “party” and especially the part about doing it if it feels good. I like the song, but it kind of strikes me as a throwaway that was meant to be a B side to some of her better numbers. It takes me back to C+C Music Factory, and 2 Unlimited…which is kinda/sorta kewt but not groundbraking WHATSOEVER!!!

    The bitch can still make me dance though.


  36. I totally agree with you guys. Madge is AMAZING -I’m 38 now and was about 14 when I first heard holiday. so many many many many amazing new sounds she has given us.. I feel blessed just to hear her songs whenever they come out for the first time. the feeling is incredible. it gives me hope and warmth and a sense of “being”. AND it brings out my dancemonkey!!!!. Madonna, queen of pop, thank you thank you thank you – this song rocks just like so many others. Where do you get this talent from? Love Dazza from australia XOXOXOXO


  38. Hottttt song!!!!
    5 out of 5 youtube-stars 🙂

  39. Hang in there, Steve. Life can be good. Get lost in music.

  40. I am in love with this song… the queen has done it again!! It makes me smile everytime I hear it n I just have to sing along… can’t wait for the album now!! Madonna, you really are the Queen of Pop n let no1 take your crown mrs!!xxxxxxxxx

  41. Madonna z th amazing .tha song is great.i looo…ove it.

  42. I was raised in a Christian home and Madonna was all but forbidden from me while I was growing up. In the past year I’ve come out to my mother and lost the man I consider the love of my life. I spent so much time dwelling on it all, absolutely depressed. At times, suicidal. I was at the library one day early this summer, browsing their music selection and happened to check out Like A Prayer. I’ve been obsessed/in love with Madonna since. I can’t explain what it is about her music and its message, but its really empowered me, helped me to have a better hold on myself, etc. Celebration is the first single to come out since I’ve become a fan and its message has really helped me move on. I’ve been getting out, dating, and dancing my ass off. Madonna truly is my savior.
