Rip It Up lyrics - Cliff Richard

Well, 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, baby, I feel fine

[Chorus:]
I'm gonna rock it up
I'm gonna rip it up
I'm gonna shake it up
I'm gonna ball it up
I'm gonna lock it up
At the ball tonight

Well, I got me a baby
And I won't be late
Pick her up in my 88
A shag going down
By the social hall
When the joint starts jumping
Gonna have me a ball

[Chorus]

Well, along about ten
I'll be flying high
I walk on out to
That groovy sky
But I don't care
If I spend my dough
'Cause tonight I'm gonna be
One happy soul

[Chorus]

Well, 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, baby, I feel fine

[Chorus]

Wake Up Little Susie lyrics - Cliff Richard

Wake up little Susie, wake up
Wake up little Susie, wake up
We both fell sound asleep
Wake up little Susie and weep
The movie's over, it's four O'clock
And we're in trouble deep

Wake up little Susie, wake up little Susie
Well, what are we gonna tell your mama?
What are we gonna tell your pa?
What are we gonna tell our friends
When they say "Ooh la la"?

Wake up little Susie, wake up little Susie
Well we told your mama that you'd be in by ten
Well Susie baby looks like we goofed again
Wake up little Susie, wake up little Susie
We gotta go home

Wake up little Susie, wake up
Wake up little Susie, wake up
The movie wasn't so hot
It didn't have much of a plot
We fell asleep, our goose is cooked
Our reputation is shot

Wake up little Susie, wake up little Susie
Well, what are we gonna tell your mama?
What are we gonna tell your pa?
What are we gonna tell our friends
When they say "Ooh la la"?

Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie

Wake up little Susie, wake up little Susie
Well, what are we gonna tell your mama?
What are we gonna tell your pa?
What are we gonna tell our friends
When they say "Ooh la la"?

Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie

Poetry In Motion lyrics - Cliff Richard

Poetry in motion
Walkin' by my side
Her lovely locomotion
Keeps my eyes open wide

Poetry in motion
See her gentle sway
A wave out on the ocean
Could never move that way

I love every movement
There's nothing I would change
She doesn't need improvement
She's much too nice to rearrange

Poetry in motion
Dancing close to me
A flower of devotion
A swaying gracefully

Whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whooooooooa

When I see my baby
What do I see
Poetry
Poetry in motion

Poetry in motion
See her gentle sway
A wave out on the ocean
Could never move that way

I love every movement
And there's nothing I would change
There's no need improvement
She's much too nice to rearrange

Poetry in motion
All that I adore
No number-nine love potion
Could make me love her more

Whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whooooooooa

Whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whooooooooa

She's poetry

Sealed With A Kiss lyrics - Cliff Richard

'Tho we gotta say goodbye for the summer
Darling I promise you this
I'll send you all my love
Every day in a letter
Sealed with a kiss

Guess it's gonna be a cold lonely summer
But I'll fill the emptiness
I'll send you all my dreams
Every day in a letter
Sealed with a kiss

I'll see you in the sunlight
I'll hear your voice everywhere
I'll run to tenderly hold you
But darling you won't be there

I don't wanna say goodbye for the summer
Knowing the love we'll miss
Oh let us make a pledge to meet in September
And seal it with a kiss

[Instrumental]

I don't wanna say goodbye for the summer
But I'll fill the emptiness
I'll send you all my love every day in a letter
Sealed with a kiss
Sealed with a kiss
Sealed with a kiss

Stood Up lyrics - Cliff Richard

(originally by Ricky Nelson)

Well, I've been waitin' ever since eight
Guess my baby's got another date
Stood up, broken-hearted, again

I'll bet she's out havin' a ball
Not even thinkin' of me at all
Stood up, broken-hearted, again

Well, I know just what I oughta do
I oughta find somebody new
But, baby, I couldn't forget about you
Stood up, broken-hearted, again

[Instrumental break]

Why must I always be the one
Left behind never havin' any fun?
Stood up, broken-hearted, again

But I guess I'll go on bein' a fool
Sittin' around just waitin' for you
Stood up, broken-hearted, again

Well, I know just what I oughta do
I oughta find somebody new
But, baby, I couldn't forget about you
Stood up, broken-hearted, again

Stood up, broken-hearted, again
Stood up, broken-hearted, again

Such A Night lyrics - Cliff Richard

(originally by The Drifters)

It was a night oo-oo what a night
It was it really was such a night
The moon was bright oh how so bright
It was it really was such a night
The night was alight with stars above
When she kissed me
I had to fall in love

It was a kiss oo-oo what a kiss
It was it really was such a kiss
How she could kiss oh what a kiss
It was it really was such a kiss
Just the thought of her lips
And it sets me afire
I reminisce and I'm filled desire
But I'd gave my heart to her in sweet surrender
How well I remember, I'll always remember

Oh, what a night oo-oo what a night
It was it really was such a night
Came the dawn and my heart and my love
And the night was gone
But I'll never forget that kiss
The kiss in the moonlight
Oo-oo such a kiss, such a night
I'd gave my heart to her in sweet surrender
How well I remember, I'll always remember

It was a night oo-oo what a night
It was it really was such a night
Came the dawn and my heart and my love
And the night was gone
But I'll never forget that kiss in the moonlight
Oo-oo such a kiss, such a night

Now she's gone, gone, gone
Yes she's gone, gone, gone
Came the dawn, dawn, dawn
And the night was dawn
And my heart love was gone
And her love was gone
But before that dawn
Oo-oo, oo-oo such a night

School Days lyrics - Cliff Richard

(originally by Chuck Berry)

Up in the mornin' and out to school
The teacher is teachin' the Golden Rule
American history and practical math
You study' em hard and hopin' to pass
Workin' your fingers right down to the bone
And the guy behind you won't leave you alone

Ring ring goes the bell
The cook in the lunchroom's ready to sell
You're lucky if you can find a seat
You're fortunate if you have time to eat
Back in the classroom open you books
Gee but the teacher don't know
How mean she looks

Soon as three o'clock rolls around
You finally lay your burden down
Close up your books, get out of your seat

Down the halls and into the street
Up to the corner and 'round the bend
Right to the juke joint you go in

Drop the coin right into the slot
You gotta hear something that's really hot

With the one you love you're makin' romance
All day long you been wantin' to dance
Feelin' the music from head to toe
'Round and 'round and 'round you go
'Round and 'round

Drop the coin right into the slot
You gotta hear something that's really hot

With the one you love you're makin' romance
All day long you been wantin' to dance
Feelin' the music from head to toe
'Round and 'round and 'round you go
'Round and 'round

Hail, hail rock'n'roll
Deliver me from the days of old
Long live rock'n'roll
The beat of the drum is loud and bold
Rock rock rock'n'roll
The feelin' is there body and soul

Teddy Bear & Too Much lyrics - Cliff Richard

Baby let me be your lovin' teddy bear
Put a chain around my neck
And lead me anywhere
Oh, let me be
Your teddy bear

I don't wanna be a tiger
'Cause tigers play too rough
I don't wanna be a lion
'Cause lions ain't the kind you love enough

I just wanna be, your teddy bear
Come on put a chain around my neck
And lead me anywhere
Oh, let me be
Your teddy bear

Well, honey I love you too much
I need your lovin' too much
When I want some loving', you're gone
Don't you know you're treating' your teddy wrong
Now you got me started
Don't you leave me broken hearted
Cause I love you too much

I need your lovin' all the time
Need you hugging', please be mine
Need you near me, stay real close
Please, please, hear me, cause you're the most
Now you got me started
Don't you leave me broken hearted
Cause I love you too much

I don't wanna be a tiger
'Cause tigers play too rough
I don't wanna be a lion
'Cause lions ain't the kind you love enough

Just wanna be, your teddy bear
Put a chain around my neck
And lead me anywhere
Oh, let me be
Your teddy bear

Let me be
Your teddy bear
I just wanna be your teddy bear

Don't Let Go lyrics - Cliff Richard

Hear that whistle, it's ten o'clock (don't let go, don't let go)
Come on, baby, it's time to rock (don't let go, don't let go)
I'm so happy I got you here (don't let go, don't let go)
Keeps me grinnin' for ear to ear (don't let go, don't let go)

Oowee, this feelin's killin' me, ah, shucks
I wouldn't stop for a million bucks
I love you, so
Just hold me tight and don't let go

Thunder, lightning, wind and rain (don't let go, don't let go)
Love is stormin' inside my brain (don't let go, don't let go)
I'm so eager, I'm nearly dyin' (don't let go, don't let go)
You've been keeping your lips from mine (don't let go, don't let go)

Oowee, this feelin's killin' me, ah, shucks
I wouldn't stop for a million bucks
I love you, so
Just hold me tight and don't let go

Don't let go!

Hound dog barkin' up side the hill (don't let go, don't let go)
Love is draggin' him through the mill (don't let go, don't let go)
If it wasn't for havin' you (don't let go, don't let go)
I'd be walkin' and-a howlin' too (don't let go, don't let go)

Oowee, this feelin's killin' me, ah, shucks
I wouldn't stop for a million bucks
I love you, so
Just hold me tight and don't let go

One day, baby, you'll get me yet
I'll be cryin' and soakin' wet
One thing, baby, I'll never stand
Is your lips kissin' another man

Oowee, this feelin's killin' me, ah, shucks
I wouldn't stop for a million bucks
I love you, so
Just hold me tight and don't let go

Hold me tight and don't let go (don't let go, don't let go)
Hey, baby, it's ten o'clock (don't let go, don't let go)
Come on, baby, it's time to rock (don't let go, don't let go)
Hey, baby, it's time to go (don't let go, don't let go)
Hey, baby, you can't say "no" (don't let go, don't let go)

Dream Lover lyrics - Cliff Richard

(originally by Bobby Darin)

You know I need someone
Someone I can call my own
You know I need somebody, need somebody
'Cause I don't want to be alone

Every night I hope and pray a dream lover will come my way
A girl to hold in my arms and know the magic of her charms
'cause I want a girl to call my own
I want a dream lover so I don't have to dream alone

Dream lover, where are you with a love, oh, so true?
And I hand that can hold, to feel you near as I grow old?
'cause I want a girl to call my own
I want a dream lover so I don't have to dream alone

Well, someday, I don't know how, I hope she'll hear my plea
Some way, and I don't know how, she'll bring her love to me

Dream lover, until then, I'll go to sleep and dream again
That's the only thing to do, till my lover's dreams come true
'cause I want a girl (a girl) to call (to call) my own
I want a dream lover so I don't have to dream alone

'cause I want a girl (a girl) to call (to call) my own
I want a dream lover so I don't have to dream alone
please don't make me dream alone
I want a dream lover so I don't have to dream alone
Don't make me dream alone
I want a dream lover so I don't have to dream alone

Stuck On You lyrics - Cliff Richard

(originally by Elvis Presley)

You can shake an apple off an apple tree
Shake, shake sugar
But you'll never shake me
Uh uh uh no sir-ee, uh, uh
I'm gonna stick like glue
Stick because I'm stuck on you

I'm Gonna run my fingers through your long black hair
Squeeze you tighter than a grizzly bear
Uh uh uh, yes sir-ee, uh, uh
I'm gonna stick like glue
Stick, because I'm stuck on you

Hide in the kitchen, hide in the hall
Ain't gonna do you no good at all
'Cause once I catch ya and the kissin' starts
A team o' wild horses couldn't tear us apart

Can take a tiger from his daddy's side
That's how love is gonna keep us tied uh uh uh
Uh uh uh, yes sir-ee, uh, uh
I'm gonna stick like glue
Stick, because I'm stuck on you

Hide in the kitchen, hide in the hall
Ain't gonna do you no good at all
'Cause once I catch ya and the kissin' starts
A team o' wild horses couldn't tear us apart

Can take a tiger from his daddy's side
That's how love is gonna keep us tied uh uh uh
Uh uh uh, yes sir-ee, uh, uh
I'm gonna stick like glue
Stick, because I'm stuck on you

Stuck on you!

Take a tiger from his daddy's side
That's how love is gonna keep us tied uh uh uh
I'm gonna stick like glue
Stick, because I'm stuck on you
I'm gonna stick like glue
Yeah yeah, because I'm stuck on you
I'm gonna stick like glue
Baby, because I'm stuck on you

Fabulous lyrics - Cliff RIchard

(originally by Charlie Gracie)

Well I always knew, I was crazy for you
But now I know you’d thrill me so?
If this is love, well it’s fabulous

Your lips close to mine, I get chills up my spine
And when we touch, I thrill so much
If this is love, well it’s fabulous

I read in a book about love and it’s charms
But I, I never knew until I held you in my arms

When I held you tight, I know, I know I am right
Cause only you can do what you do
If this is love, well it’s fabulous

Well I always knew, I was crazy for you
But now I know you’d thrill me so?
If this is love, well it’s fabulous

I read in a book about love and it’s charms
But I, I never knew until I held you in my arms

When I held you tight, I know, I know I am right
Cause only you can do what you do
If this is love, well it’s fabulous
If this is love, it’s fabulous
If this is love, well it’s fabulous

Rave On lyrics - Cliff Richard

(originally by Sonny West)

The little things you say and do
Make me want to be with you
Rave on it's a crazy feeling and
I know it's got me reeling
When you say I love you, rave on

The way you dance and hold me tight
The way you kiss and say goodnight
Rave on it's a crazy feeling and
I know it's got me reeling
When you say I love you, rave on

Well, rave on it's a crazy feeling
And I know it's got me reeling
I'm so glad that you're revealing your love for me
Rave on, rave on and tell me, tell me, not to be lonely
Tell me, you love me only rave on to me, rave on

Well, rave on it's a crazy feeling
And I know it's got me reeling
I'm so glad that you're revealing your love for me
Rave on, rave on and tell me, tell me, not to be lonely
Tell me, you love me only rave on to me

The way you dance and hold me tight
The way you kiss and say goodnight
Rave on it's a crazy feeling and
I know it's got me reeling
When you say I love you, rave on

Well, rave on it's a crazy feeling
And I know it's got me reeling
I'm so glad that you're revealing your love for me
Rave on, rave on and tell me, tell me, not to be lonely
Tell me, you love me only rave on to me, rave on

Johnny B. Goode lyrics - Cliff Richard

(originally by Chuck Berry)

Deep down Louisiana close to New Orleans
Way back up in the woods among the evergreens
There stood a log cabin made of earth and wood
Where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode
Who never ever learned to read or write so well
But he'd play the guitar just like a ringing a bell

Go go, go Johnny go
Go, go Johnny go
Go, go Johnny go
Go, go Johnny go
Go go, Johnny B. Goode

He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack
Go sit beneath the tree by the railroad track
The engineerswould see him sitting in the shade
Strumming with the rhythm that the drivers made
People passing by they would stop and say
Oh my that little country boy could play

Go go, go Johnny go
Go, go Johnny go
Go, go Johnny go
Go, go Johnny go
Go go, Johnny B. Goode

His mother told him "Someday you will be a man
And you will be the leader of a big old band
Many people coming from miles around
To hear you play your music when the sun go down
Maybe someday your name will be in lights
Saying Johnny B. Goode tonight."

Go go, go Johnny go
Go, go Johnny go
Go, go Johnny go
Go, go Johnny go
Go go, go go, Johnny B. Goode
