"Rip It Up" as written by and Edwyn Stephen Collins....
Hey girl, get on the dancefloor
And rip it up, yeah
That's what it's there for
That's what it's there for
So rip it up, yeah
Ah rip it up and tear it up
Until you really don't know why
Until you don't know why

I seen a man there
Down at the station
He's got a head of ideas
Has just too many reservations
It turns me round, yeah
It breaks my heart, yeah
It rips me up and tears me up
You know I really don't know why
You know I don't know why

She says love is the law
Why don't you come round no more?
She says I loved you so much more
When you were down on the floor

I said well well
That ain't nothing
You got to rip it up
You got to pick a stitch
And turn me round, yeah
And break my heart, yeah
And rip me up and tear me up
You know I really don't know why
I really don't know why

Hey girl, get on the dance floor
Just like I told you
That's what it's there for
That's what it's there for
So rip it up, yeah
Ah rip it up and tear it up
Until you really don't know why
Until you don't know why
So rip it up, yeah
And tear it up. yeah
And just please don't stop
And rip it up

    General CommentWat a great song! I think the whole "get on the dancefloor and rip it up yea that wat its there for" bit is just about just getting up and dancing and losing any reservations and just having a really good time not caring about anything, going with ur feelings. I think the whole songs about just going letting ur feelings take control "it turns me round yea, and breaks my heart yea" and realising u cant always understand them "and rips me up and tears me up you know i really don't know why" lol well thst just wat its says to me :-)
