Lyrics

Single version

Ke$ha:
It's goin' down
I'm yellin' timber
You better move
You better dance
Let's make a night
You won't remember
I'll be the one
You won't forget

Ooh (timber)
Ooh (timber)
Ooh (it's goin' down)
Ooh (timber)
Ooh (timber)
Ooh (it's goin' down)

Pitbull:
The bigger they are the harder they fall
These big-ddy boys are dig-gidy dogs
Have 'em like Miley Cyrus, clothes off
Twerking in their bras and thongs
Timber

Face down, booty up
Timber
That's the way we like to what?
Timber
I'm slicker than an oil spill
She say she won't
But I bet she will
Timber


Swing your partner round and round
End of the night
It's goin' down
One more shot
Another round
End of the night
It's goin' down

Swing your partner round and round
End of the night
It's goin' down (Ke$ha: oh)
One more shot
Another round
End of the night
It's goin' down

Ke$ha:
It's goin' down
I'm yellin' timber
You better move
You better dance
Let's make a night
You won't remember
I'll be the one
You won't forget

It's goin' down (it's goin' down)
I'm yellin' timber
You better move (you better move)
You better dance (you better dance)

Let's make a night
You won't remember
I'll be the one
You won't forget
You won't forget

Whoa (timber)
Whoa (timber)
Whoa (it's goin' down)
Whoa (timber)
Whoa (timber)
Whoa (it's goin' down)


Pitbull:
Look up in the sky
It's a bird, it's a plane
Nah, it's just me
Ain't a damn thing changed
Live in hotels
swing on plane
Blessed to say money ain't a thing
Club jumping like Lebron, now voli
Order me another round, homie
We about to clown, why?
'Cause it's about to go down


Swing your partner round and round
End of the night
It's goin' down
One more shot
Another round
End of the night
It's goin' down

Swing your partner round and round
End of the night
It's goin' down (Ke$ha: oh)
One more shot
Another round
End of the night
It's goin' down


Ke$ha:
It's goin' down
I'm yellin' timber
You better move
You better dance
Let's make a night
You won't remember
I'll be the one
You won't forget

It's goin' down (it's goin' down)
I'm yellin' timber
You better move
You better dance (you better dance)

Let's make a night (let's make a night)
You won't remember
I'll be the one (I'll be the one)
You won't forget
You won't forget (you won't forget)

Whoa (timber)
Whoa (timber) (hey)
Whoa (it's goin' down) (Pitbull)
Whoa (timber)(oh)
Whoa (timber)
Whoa (it's goin' down)


Whoa (timber)
Whoa (timber) (c'mon)
It's goin' down
Whoa (timber
Whoa (you won't forget)
Whoa (timber)

Solo Verse

So you say you wanna g-g-get ratchet
You came to the right bitch, I got a hatchet
Chain saw, Timber, you're going down
I juggle them dudes just like I'm a clown
Turn around and shake that ass for me
Show me that human anatomy
You think you're bad, but I'm worse
You're going down first!
