Rip It Up
Little Richard Lyrics


Well, it's Saturday night and I just got paid
Fool about my money, don't try to save
My heart says go go, have a time
'Cause it's Saturday night and I'm feelin' fine

I'm gonna rock it up, I'm gonna rip it up
I'm gonna shake it up, gonna ball it up
I'm gonna rock it up, and ball tonight

Got me a date and I won't be late
Picked her up in my '88
Shag on down by the union hall
When the joint starts jumpin' I'll have a ball

I'm gonna rock it up, I'm gonna rip it up
I'm gonna shake it up, gonna ball it up
I'm gonna rock it up, and ball tonight

Long about ten I'll be flying high
Walk on out unto the sky
But I don't care if I spend my dough
'Cause tonight I'm gonna be one happy soul

I'm gonna rock it up, I'm gonna rip it up
I'm gonna shake it up, gonna ball it up
I'm gonna rock it up, and ball tonight (woah!)

Well, it's Saturday night and I just got paid
Fool about my money, don't try to save
My heart says go go, have a time
'Cause it's Saturday night and I'm feelin' fine

I'm gonna rock it up, I'm gonna rip it up
I'm gonna shake it up, gonna ball it up
I'm gonna rock it up, and ball tonight

Long about ten I'll be flying high
Walk on out unto the sky
But I don't care if I spend my dough
'Cause tonight I'm gonna be one happy soul

I'm gonna rock it up, I'm gonna rip it up
I'm gonna shake it up, gonna ball it up
I'm gonna rock it up, and ball tonight

Well, it's Saturday night and I just got paid,
Fool about my money, don't try to save,
My heart says go go, have a time,
'Cause it's Saturday night and I'm feelin' fine,

I'm gonna rock it up, I'm gonna rip it up,
I'm gonna shake it up, gonna ball it up,
I'm gonna rock it up, and ball tonight.

Got me a date and I won't be late,
Picked her up in my 88,
Shag on down by the union hall,
When the joint starts jumpin' I'll have a ball,

I'm gonna rock it up, I'm gonna rip it up,
I'm gonna shake it up, gonna ball it up,
I'm gonna rock it up, and ball tonight.

'Long about ten I'll be flying high,
Walk on out unto the sky,
But I don't care if I spend my dough,
'Cause tonight I'm gonna be one happy soul,

I'm gonna rock it up, I'm gonna rip it up,
I'm gonna shake it up, gonna ball it up,
I'm gonna rock it up, and ball tonight.

Well, it's Saturday night and I just got paid,
Fool about my money, don't try to save,
My heart says go go, have a time,
'Cause it's Saturday night and I'm feelin' fine,

I'm gonna rock it up, I'm gonna rip it up,
I'm gonna shake it up, gonna ball it up,
I'm gonna rock it up, and ball tonight.

'Long about ten I'll be flying high,
Walk on out unto the sky,
But I don't care if I spend my dough,
'Cause tonight I'm gonna be one happy soul,

I'm gonna rock it up, I'm gonna rip it up,
I'm gonna shake it up, gonna ball it up,
I'm gonna rock it up, and ball tonight.

You know a song is great if after 60 years old it puts you a smile on your face while listening to it.

In 1956, I was nine years old and heard Little Richard's, Rip It Up, on the jukebox. I've been hooked on Rock and Roll ever since. LR was a true rock icon. RIP.

@clinchco It's a 62' JazzMaster. Yes I have it. Top of the line back then, but I think an old Strat would be more valuable and useful today. Nowadays I just use a cheap Chinese Telecaster.
Yes, I know about James and also about Scotty Moore, Carl Perkins and the others
The old time great ones of R&R.
I Also played the High School Proms, etc. back in the day, but I never shot myself in the foot like Greg to avoid the Draft.

@Obe Doobie Little Richard inspired a lot of future rockers. I played in a rock band in high school and still have my Fender. Hope you still have yours, it's worth some money. That guitar player behind Ricky Nelson was James Burton...a great guitarist !
