Lynn, Cheryl - Shake It Up Tonight Lyrics




I can't wait until the sun goes down
I'm gettin' ready
See the moonlight on the town
I'm gettin' ready

I'm gonna put on my steppin' shoes
'Cause I'm gettin' ready
Walk the streets and spread the news
I'm gettin' ready

I'm gonna call you on the telephone
Gonna tell somebody there's a party goin' on

Shake it up tonight
Show you how to party right
Shake it up tonight
Show you how to party right

Gonna be a lot of people there
Don't you wanna be ready
There'll be coming from everywhere
I'm gettin' ready

Don't you know I wanna be with you tonight?
Come on, baby, 'cause we're gonna do it right
I'm gettin' ready

Just put the pillow rhythm in your heart
Just put your hands together when the music starts

Shake it up tonight
Show you how to party right
Shake it up tonight
Move your body left and right

Shake it up tonight
Show you how to party right
Shake it up tonight
Dance the night away

Shakin' my body up and down tonight
Said the time is right
Oh, I'm gonna shake my body tonight
And move my hips from left to right
I'm gonna shake my body tonight
I wanna shake it down now

I can't wait until the sun goes down
I'm gettin' ready
See the moonlight on the town
I'm gettin' ready

I'm gonna put on my steppin' shoes
'Cause I, I wanna be ready
Walk the streets and spread the news
There's a party

Call my friends on the telephone
Let's all get together and we'll get off
Now let's party

Shake it up tonight
Show you how to do it right
Shake it up tonight
Show you how to party right

I wanna show you how to party right
I wanna show you how to get down tonight
I wanna show you how to have some fun
I wanna show you how it can be done

Shake it, shake it up tonight
Show you how to party right
Shake it up tonight
Show you how to party right

Shake it, shake it up tonight
Show you how to party right
Shake it, shake it up tonight
Show you how to party right
Shake it, shake it up tonight
Show you how to party right

Shake it, shake it up tonight
Show you how to party right
Shake it, shake it up tonight
Show you how to party right

    In the this case Allen McGrier
    Another big example just below

    https://youtu.be/HG0Il_SA3Yo

    Claude Sledge

    @Daniel Little ...Soo,was this Allen McGrier's artistry featured on Cheryl Lynn's track,"Shake It Up Tonight"? If soo,he was with BBQ,CHANGE and Cheryl Lynn.

    Daniel Little

    @Claude Sledge yes, he was. But as Ray Parker Jr was the Producer took the credits. So he plays and Parker Jr was featured. And about Change and BBQ I can't tell you. I think he wasn't because both of them where an Italian/American projects and really don't know if was Allen. Maybe you can tell better than me.

  85. Steve Ellis
