Little Richard – Rip It Up 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,
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, ...

'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, ...

    He has a hot date and he plans to show her a good time to the end of his pay check. He is planning to party hardy, get high and get laid. He picked his date up in his "oldsmobile 88" car and arrived early to where the dance was to take place and he had s** in the car while waiting for the dance hall to open. By ten P. M. He expects to be drunk or stoned as high as the clouds; and will feel his happiness and fullfillment down to his very soul.

    In the fifties, unions were the norm for a lot of working americans. Unions would have collective bargaining with corporations and small company's. That led to the crisis that we face today and is the reason for the demise of many corporations and small company's. Many jobs were shipped over seas because of the greed and corruption by union officials and politicians who felt that their unions should be paid more and more money. This song reminds me of that period in history. Think about the auto industry and realize that all that stimulus money was really wasted on gm when in reality it could of filed for bankrupcy and solved the problem.
