The Night Is Still Young - Nicki Minaj



The Experience: How dare we sit quietly and watch the world pass us by... You can't waste any time. There's so much to do and so little time to do it in...


Music video: Nicki Minaj alternates shots of her scantily clad self with couples on their way to a party. That fixation on herself takes away from the strength of her have-a-good-time message. Is the song just an excuse to showcase herself? Or does she truly have something to say?

The Meaning of The Night Is Still Young: The irony of Nicki Minaj's latest pop offering is that the world will pass you by if you dedicate your life to alcohol - twisted - drugs - lifted - and sex - plankin' and slaughtered. If the night is still young, and so are we, you can do more than get wasted. You can get a life, and actually live it. What Nicki Minaj is singing about - the urge to live free and aim for the stars - is very real. But her conclusion - make mistakes - is an anthem that won't get you very close to those stars.

Ask yourself: Why do talented people waste the best years of their lives on drugs, sex and drink?

LYRICS:

Yo, ayo tonight is the night that I'ma get twisted
Myx Moscato and vodka, I'ma mix it
Roll that spaceship, we about to get lifted
Live in the present, that gift is for the gifted
This what you came, this what you came for
You get what you buy, this what you paid for
So make sure the stars is what you aim for
Make mistakes though

I never worry, life is a journey
I just wanna enjoy the ride
What is the hurry? It's pretty early
It's ok, we'll take our time

The night is still young
The night is still young
The night is still young
And so are we
The night is still young (How dare we sit quietly)
The night is still young (And watch the world pass us by)
The night is still young (How dare we sit quietly)
So are we

Ayo, drinks on you or the drinks is on me
We ain't going nowhere like tanks is on E
We still getting money, what bank it's gon' be?
If he's sexy, he plankin' on me
So where them big boys with all of that?
Hey! Tell the bartender, say my order back
Hey! It's bottle service, he ordered that
Hey! Might let him take it home and slaughter that
He got friends for all of my friends
They ain't leavin' til we say when
And we gonna hangover the next day
But we will remember this day
So drop the pop and get low
Or we can drop the top and just cruise
We fresh to death, down to the shoes
My only motto in life is don't lose

I never worry, life is a journey
I just wanna enjoy the ride
What is the hurry? It's pretty early
It's ok, we'll take our time

The night is still young
The night is still young
The night is still young
And so are we
The night is still young (How dare we sit quietly)
The night is still young (And watch the world pass us by)
The night is still young (How dare we sit quietly)
So are we

We're just gettin' started, yeah, yeah
We're just gettin' started, yeah, yeah
Can't you see the night's still early
And we gon' get it wild and crazy

We're just gettin' started, yeah, yeah
We're just gettin' started, yeah, yeah
Can't you see the night's still early
And we gon' get it wild and crazy

The night is still young
The night is still young
The night is still young
And so are we
The night is still young (How dare we sit quietly)
The night is still young (And watch the world pass us by)
The night is still young (How dare we sit quietly)
So are we

(How dare we sit quietly)
(And watch the world pass us by)
(How dare we sit quietly)
(And watch the world pass us by)
