About Shake It Up Tonight

"Shake It Up Tonight" is a song by American singer Cheryl Lynn. Since the success of her debut single, "Got to Be Real", the acclaimed R&B-dance track peaked at No. 5 on both the R&B and Hot Dance Club Play charts, and it also scored number 70 on the Billboard pop charts. It failed to chart in the UK. "Shake It Up Tonight" appears on Lynn's LP In the Night, and was written by Mike and Brenda Sutton. The B-side is "Baby", written by Cheryl Lynn and Ray Parker Jr. The ready-made disco song was a moderate success. It became a defining song for Lynn. The 7" version of the song was recorded and produced by Ray Parker Jr. who has worked with her. Jamaican singer Luciano covered the song as a number-one reggae hit in 1993. The 12" version was mixed and produced by Ray Parker Jr. The song was especially popular in the Los Angeles market. During late August it peaked at number 5 on KUTE and number 11 on KRLA.

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

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

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

[Chorus:]

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 want to be ready
There'll be coming from everywhere
I'm getting ready

Don't you know I want to be with you tonight
Come on baby, 'cause we're gonna do it right
I'm getting 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

Shaking 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 want to shake it down now

I'm gonna put on my steppin shoes
'Cause I, I want to 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 want to show you how to party right
I want to show you how to get down tonight
I want to show you how to have some fun
I want to 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
