Run the red light / grand theft auto – does hearing seeing stuff make us do it?? Lesson based on contrary song lyrics – also see Miley Cyrus Do

It's our party we can do what we want
It's our party we can say what we want
It's our party we can love who we want
We can kiss who we want
We can see who we want (2x)

Red cups and sweaty bodies everywhere
Hands in the air like we don't care
Cause we came to have so much fun now
Bet somebody here might get some now

If you're not ready to go home
Can I get a hell no
Cause we gonna go all night
Till we see the sunlight alright

So la da di da di, we like to party
Dancing with Miley
Doing whatever we want
This is our house
This is our rules
And we can't stop
And we won't stop
Can't you see it's we who own the night
Can't you see it we who bout' that life
And we can't stop
And we won't stop
We run things, Things don't run we
We don't take nothing from nobody

It's our party we can do what we want
It's our party we can say what we want
It's our party we can love who we want
We can kiss who we want
We can see who we want

To my home girls here with the big butt
Shaking it like we at a strip club
Remember only God could judge ya
Forget the haters cause somebody loves ya
And everyone in line in the bathroom
Trying to get a line in the bathroom
We all so turned up here
Getting turned up, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

So la da di da di, we like to party
Dancing with Miley
Doing whatever we want
This is our house
This is our rules
And we can't stop
And we won't stop
Can't you see it's we who own the night
Can't you see it we who bout' that life
And we can't stop
And we won't stop
We run things
Things don't run we
We don't take nothing from nobody yeah yeah

It's our party we can do what we want
It's our party we can say what we want
It's our party we can love who we want
We can kiss who we want
We can see who we want

It's our party we can do what we want to
It's our house we can love who we want to
It's our song we can sing if we want to
It's my mouth I can say what I want to
Yea, Yea, Yeah

And we can't stop
And we won't stop
We run things
Things don't run we
We don't take nothing from nobody
Yea, Yea, Yea

Some ideas

Attitudes, values, ideology (teen defiance, rebellion, sense of individuality, freedom and independence, liberal moral codes, living for the moment, living life to the full).

Social mores - liberal attitudes of the 1920's, permisive 1960's. (NB context in which changing attitudes took place and societies this restricted to).

Censorship; morality (I Don't Care, I Can't Stop, and I Love It: Miley Cyrus and Ironic Decadence).

Purpose, audience

Perspective

Voices

Reading for meaning - party as analogy for life; "can't stop, wont' stop" reading of title.
