"Rip It Up" as written by Christopher Cester, Cameron Thane Muncey and Nicholas John Cester....
Did you ever get the feeling you were born to lose
Smacked in the face with a silver spoon
Skinny doll gimme your magazine queen
Spread your legs for the silver screen
From the bedroom baby to the city of light
You look pretty good but you're not so bright

Flashin' your stash ain't nothin' new
I'm gonna get ya my pretty and your little dog too
Make me rich, your doctor said
And if you ever break down I'll cut you up again
On the bedroom wall the stars look bright
But they don't belong in the city of light

Get on your feet boys
Rip it up, rip it up if your ever gonna make it!
Get on your feet girls
Rip it up, rip it up if your ever gonna make it!

Well,well, well what a wild wild dream
Monkey do, what a monkey seen
Daddy done bought you a record deal
Bargain basement boy how does it feel
From the bedroom baby to the city of light
You look pretty good but you're not so bright

Get on your feet boys
Rip it up, rip it up if your ever gonna make it!
Get on your feet girls
Rip it up, rip it up if your ever gonna make it!
Rip it up, rip it up, rip it up,
Rip it up, rip it up, rip it up

Get on your feet girl
Rip it up, rip it up if your ever gonna make it
Get on your feet boy
Rip it up, rip it up if your ever gonna make it

Get on your feet girl
Rip it up, rip it up, rip it up
Rip it up, rip it up, rip it up

    General CommentReally, this song seems to me, like they're talking about the entertainment industry. At first, it seems they're making a reference to movie stars such as "spread your legs for the silver screen" and when they say "make me rich your doctor said" they're talking about cosmetic surgery.

    Then they talk about record deals and bargain basement, of course, speaking about untalented artists getting record deals out of the luck of the draw, so to speak.

    General CommentThis song is written about Paris Hilton. Cam said so when I saw them in concert in Dallas. That makes the song make a lot more sense. "I'm gonna get you my pretty and your little dog too". HAHAHA

    Cheers

    General CommentI don't think my version has this part:

    "Get on your feet boys
    Rip it up, rip it up till it's amputated

    Get on your feet girls
    Rip it up, rip it up to the high rotation

    Get on your feet boys
    Rip it up, rip it up watch em go home wasted

    Get on your feet girls
    Yeah i know your gonna make it

    Get on your feet boys
    Rip it up, rip it up got a lot don't waste it

    Get on your feet girls
    Rip it up, rip it up get a new decoration

    Get on your feet boys
    Rip it up, rip it up money face is waitin'

    Get on your feet girls
    Rip it up, rip it up get a new fascination

    Get on your feet boys
    Kiss, blow a kiss to the wall your facin'

    Get on your feet girls
    It's time to collect from the bank generation"

    Is this part even real? BTW I have Rip It Up from the TMNT soundtrack.
