Jitterbug
Jitterbug
Jitterbug
Jitterbug

You put the boom boom into my heart (hoo, hoo)
You send my soul sky high when your lovin' starts
Jitterbug into my brain (yeah, yeah)
Goes a bang-bang-bang 'til my feet do the same
But something's bugging you (ha-ha, ha-ha)
Something ain't right (ha-ha, ha-ha)
My best friend told me what you did last night (ha-ha, ha-ha)
Left me sleepin' in my bed (ha-ha, ha-ha)
I was dreaming, but I should have been with you instead (ha-ha)

Wake me up before you go-go
Don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
I don't want to miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go-go
'Cause I'm not plannin' on going solo
Wake me up before you go-go
Take me dancing tonight
I wanna hit that high (yeah, yeah)

You take the grey skies out of my way (hoo, hoo)
You make the sun shine brighter than Doris Day
Turned a bright spark into a flame (yeah, yeah)
My beats per minute never been the same
'Cause you're my lady, I'm your fool (ha-ha, ha-ha)
It makes me crazy when you act so cruel (ha-ha, ha-ha)
Come on, baby, let's not fight (ha-ha, ha-ha)
We'll go dancing, everything will be all right (ha-ha)

Wake me up before you go-go
Don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
I don't want to miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go-go
'Cause I'm not plannin' on going solo
Wake me up before you go-go
Take me dancing tonight
I wanna hit that high (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Jitterbug (baby)
Jitterbug (woo)

Cuddle up, baby, move in tight
We'll go dancing tomorrow night
It's cold out there, but it's warm in bed
They can dance, we'll stay home instead

Jitterbug

Wake me up before you go-go
Don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
I don't want to miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go-go
'Cause I'm not plannin' on going solo
Wake me up before you go-go
Take me dancing tonight

Wake me up before you go-go (don't you dare)
Don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
(Leave me hanging on like a yo-yo, yo-yo, yo)
Wake me up before you go-go
I don't want to miss it when you hit that high
(Take me dancing)
(A boom-boom-boom-boom, oh)
Wake me up before you go-go
'Cause I'm not plannin' on going solo
(A boom-boom-boom-boom)
Wake me up before you go-go (ah)
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Take me dancing tonight

Ooh ah
Yeah

    Oh I love this song. Such a nice and jolly, lively feel to it. "Wake me up before you go go" - he doesn't want to miss a thing, wants to be a part of it, go out, do stuff. Enjoy.

    I'm guessing this song is about a guy who meets a girl/guy who's been cheating on him, but he doesn't care because he's so in love with him/her. That's what the lyrics suggest to me.

    This song rocks. It always makes me happy upon hearing it. I used to think it was about a one night stand thing and the fella had fallen in love with the girl...or something. But whatever, this song is bubbly and bright. Always puts cheer in me, this one.

    well I think this song is about a guy, who had a ONS, but fell in love with the girl. And so he don't want her to leave, without waking him up. And he's eager to go dancing again or just stay at home in bed with her. Thats it. pretty obvious innit?

    I think this song is about him wanting her to wake him up before she goes out .. for ex: dancing .. not gay masterbation .. even if hes gay he wants the guy to wake him up before HE goes out.

    AND Zoolander is an awesome movie :P

    such an awesome feel good song. the song has a cleaver double meaning though, 1. wake me up before you leave me and never come back, but it also can mean wake me up before you go dancing as back in the 70's and 80's they had go-go girls who performed a style of dancing called go-go dancing so the term "take me dancing tonight" could mean wake me up before you go go dance (as it can be a bit promiscuous). great song, love it :)
