Black Eyed Peas - I Gotta Feeling - Lyrics Meaning

The lyrics for I Gotta Feeling by the Black Eyed Peas explains how after being stressed out, there is a need to kick back and relax, and to simply have a good time. Dealing with the daily monotonous drone of life, it is necessary to break it up a little bit and enjoy themselves. The lyrics portray how they have a feeling that tonight will be the night for them to have fun, and that it will be a good night.

Tired of having responsibilities and obligations, they are ready to be irresponsible and not worry about future obligations. For tonight, the fact that they were just paid means that they have money to spend to have fun, and as long as they are having a good time, they are willing to "spend it up". Letting go of inhibitions while enjoying themselves allows them to release their energies and celebrate, with others motivated to "take it off".

The sole purpose of these lyrics is for those to relate to their feelings that the daily obligations can add up, and without the opportunity to blow some steam and relax, that they will not be able to enjoy their life.
