"Everybody Have Fun Tonight" as written by Peter F. Wolf, Nick Feldman and Jack Hues....
I'll drive a million miles
To be with you tonight
So if you're feeling low
Turn up your radio
The words we use are strong
They make reality
But now the music's on
Oh baby dance with me yeah

Rip it up
Move down
Rip it up
Move it down to the ground
Rip it up
Cool down
Rip it up
And get the feeling not the word

Everybody have fun tonight
Everybody have fun tonight
Everybody Wang Chung tonight
Everybody have fun tonight
Everybody Wang Chung tonight
Everybody have fun

Deep in the world tonight
Our hearts beat safe and sound
I'll hold you so close
Just let yourself go down

Rip it up
Move down
Rip it up
Move it down to the ground
Rip it up
Cool down
Rip it up
Get out what's inside of you

Everybody have fun tonight
Everybody have fun tonight
Everybody Wang Chung tonight
Everybody have fun tonight
Everybody have fun tonight
Everybody Wang Chung tonight
Everybody have fun

On the edge of oblivion
All the world is Babylon
And all the love and ev'ryone
A ship of fools sailing on
(Everybody)
Everybody have fun tonight
(Everybody)
Everybody have fun tonight

Across the nation
Around the world
Everybody have fun tonight
A celebration so spread the word

Everybody have fun tonight
Everybody have fun tonight
Everybody Wang Chung tonight
Everybody have fun tonight
Everybody Wang Chung tonight
Everybody have fun tonight
Everybody have fun

Everybody
Everyone

    General CommentI always knew this song was a sexual cannotation for hot lusty chinese sex! If you sing it with that in mind it makes perfect sense.

    General CommentThe name Huang Chung literally translates from Chinese as "yellow bell", but refers to the standardized bass pitch of ancient China. Early on the band summarized the definition as "perfect pitch" and later, on American Bandstand, which they claimed was the sound a guitar made.

    General CommentLoL !!!!
    I'm guessing that no one who is listening to this song or is into this band has any idea what a "Wang Chung" is! It is a BDSM piece of equipment (very large) tht originally was a Chinese torture apparatus! I have been commissioned to build another one for a private home dungeon for someone I know. I'll be building it the summer of 2018 and will this time take lots of pictures of this new one!
    (I built one several years ago for in my own personal dungeon, but as it was set into the concrete floor I sold it as one of the 5 large dungeon components that went with that house!)
    And as far as the meaning of this song......well it's about having "fun" in the dungeon on the Wang Chung! Duh!
    "Rip it up, move down, rip it up, move down to the ground!"
    "Get out what's inside of you!'
    "Deep in your world today, I hold you so close, just let yourself go down!"
    There's much to learn about the Wang Chung and the many ways to use it. They are all kinds of "fun"!
    "On the edge of oblivion, all the world's a Babylon!"
    "Everybody have fun tonight, everybody Wang Chung tonight!"
    I can hardly wait to finish and initiate a new Wang Chung this coming summer!

    Let the punishments begin, and everyone enjoy them fully, everybody have FUN!

    General CommentBTW, where did they get this line "And get the feeling not the word"? The line in that part is "You're hanging on the borderline"! Has anyone ever actually listened to the lyrics?
