Lyrics of Rip it Up

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
Just spread your legs for the silver screen
From the bedroom baby to the city a' 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…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 a' 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 scene
Daddy done bought you a record deal
Bargain basement boy how does it feel
From the bedroom baby to the city a' light
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, rip it up

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

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

Rip it up, rip it up, rip it up, rip it up
Rip it up, rip it up, rip it up

'Rip It Up' is a song from Australian rock band Jet's second album 'Shine On'. It was released November 27, 2006 as the second single from that album in Australia. The song became controversial when the lead singer (at a concert) announced the song was about Paris Hilton. A music video was made for the single. 'Rip It Up' was originally titled 'Nothing to Lose'. It debuted at #67 on the ARIA Singles Chart and peaked at #49 for one week before leaving the top 50 altogether.

The song was also featured on the soundtrack for the 2007 animation film 'TMNT' and in the 2008 comedy 'Drillbit Taylor'. It was also played as a safety-car song in the 2007 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000. It was also played at the 2007 AFL Grand Final in the opening ceremony on the day. The song features a line from 'The Wizard of Oz': 'I'm gonna get you my pretty, and your little dog too'.

In Australia in 2007, the song was used in Holden commercials.

The song was released in the UK as the fourth single from 'Shine On' and a limited edition '7' vinyl was released there. The song failed to chart.
