I'm good, I'm good, I'm great
Know it's been a while, now I'm mixing up the drank
I just need a girl who gon' really understand
I just need a girl who gon' really understand
I'm good, I'm good, I'm great
Know it's been a while, now I'm mixing up the drank
I just need a girl who gon' really understand
I just need a girl who gon' really understand

And I've seen her get richer in the pole
I've seen her, I knew she had to know
I've seen her take down that tequila
Down by the liter, I knew I had to meet her
Ooh, she mine, ooh girl, bump and grind
Ooh, she mine, ooh girl, bump a line
Angelina, lips like Angelina
Like Selena, ass shaped like Selena

I'm like, got up, thank the Lord for the day
Woke up by a girl, I don't even know her name
Woke up by a girl, I don't even know her name
(Woke up, woke up by a girl, I don't even know her name)
Got up, thank the Lord for the day
Woke up by a girl, I don't even know her name
Woke up by a girl, I don't even know her name

I've been poppin', just took three in a row
I'm down to do it again, I'm on a roll
I've seen him outside tryna reach her
You tryna leave him, you said I'm the reason
Tell me lies, ooh girl, tell me lies
Say you're mine, I'm yours for the night
I'm the realest, she said I'm the realest
Head be genius, dick game be the meanest

I'm like got up, thank the Lord for the day
Woke up by a girl, I don't even know her name
Woke up by a girl, I don't even know her name

(Woke up, woke up by a girl, I don't even know her name)

Got up, thank the Lord for the day
Woke up by a girl, I don't even know her name
Bitches in my new spot, crowdin' up my space
Had to check the safe, check the dresser for my chains
Got up, thank the Lord for the day
Woke up by a girl, I don't even know her name
Bitches in my new spot, crowdin' up my space
Had to check the safe, check the dresser for my chains

Overall Meaning

The Weeknd’s “Party Monster” is a song about the singer’s hedonistic lifestyle, which is typified by his ability to mix drinks, pop pills, and have sex with various women. The lyrics speak of his need for a girl who would be able to understand him, and his appreciation for a woman who drinks tequila “down by the liter.” The woman has lips shaped like Angelina Jolie and an ass shaped like Selena Gomez, and the singer is immediately attracted to her.


Throughout the lyrics, the singer is seen waking up beside a woman whose name he doesn’t even know. He doesn’t care about her identity or her feelings, as long as she is willing to engage in casual sex with him. There is an underlying tone of paranoia that runs through the song, which is evident in the repetition of the word ‘paranoid.’ The singer is always looking over his shoulder, trying to see if anyone is watching him.


The Weeknd manages to translate the repetitive lyrics into a hypnotic rhythm, which is complemented by the haunting electronic beats that underscore the track. The music video features The Weeknd and his band rocking out in a desert, surrounded by beautifully dressed women, cars, and a giant cross that looms over the proceedings. Overall, “Party Monster” is a perfect example of The Weeknd’s signature sound, which is characterized by a combination of R&B, pop, and electronic music.

I've had this song on my phone for years now, Throwback to my junior year of highschool (4 years ago) I had one of the most surreal experiences listening to this song. I was walking home from school and had my earbuds in, The chorus made me just stare up into the sky. The day was beautiful and it was the first time I've felt just pure euphoria while sober. I've battled depression since I was 12, Almost every day feeling dark and gloomy. That feeling I got while listening to this song makes me want to tear up thinking about it. Feeling something so amazing felt almost completely life changing just for the small moment I was able to experience it.



Just adding this to say that I hope that everyone who is battling depression with me keeps their head high. We can get through this, Sometimes just stop and think about how amazing it is to be in this world rather than expecting the worst. Try your best just to make every day as good as it can be, We never know when it'll be our last.
