Rip It Up

Rip It Up

Escrita por Robert Blackwell y John Marascalco

Interpretada por Little Richard (Specialty 579, 1956)

Buddy y Jerry Allison grabaron de manera informal su revisión de este gran éxito de Little Richard a finales de 1956 y, posiblemente, en la misma casa de los Holley. En octubre de 1963 Norman Petty supervisó los arreglos de The Fireballs y en el verano de 1964 "Rip It Up" apareció en el álbum "Showcase".

Well it's Saturday night and I just got paid

I'm a fool about my money, don't try to save

My heart says "go go, have a time"

Saturday night and I'm feelin' fine

 

Gonna rock it up, gonna rip it up

Gonna shake it up, gonna ball it up

We're gonna rock it up, and a ball tonight

 

Well along about ten I'll be flying high

I'll rock on out unto the sky

I don't care if I spend my dough

It's Saturday night I'm a happy, happy soul

 

Gonna rock it up, gonna rip it up

Gonna shake it up, gonna ball it up

Gonna rock it up, and a ball tonight

 

Well along about ten I'll be flying high

I'll rock on out unto the sky

I don't care if I spend my dough

It's Saturday night I'm a happy, happy soul

 

Gonna rock it up, gonna rip it up, gonna rip it up

Gonna shake it up, gonna ball it up

We're gonna rock it up, and a ball tonight
