About Rip It Up

"Rip It Up" is a song from Australian rock band Jet's second album Shine On. It was released 27 November 2006 as the second single from that album in Australia. Fellow band members and brothers, Chris Cester and Nic Cester, together with Cameron Muncey, co-wrote the track. At a concert at London's Brixton Academy Nic, the lead singer, announced "Here's a song we've written about Paris Hilton – it's called 'Rip It Up'", he referred to the United States socialite, Paris Hilton. Contactmusic.com's reporter claims that the track "includes lyrics threatening to kill Hilton's pet dog... [and] includes a reference to her infamous sex video." The lyrics include a line from the 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz: "I'm gonna get you my pretty, and your little dog too." A music video was made for "Rip It Up". The track was originally titled "Nothing to Lose". It debuted at No. 67 on the ARIA Singles Chart and peaked at No. 49 for one week before leaving the top 50 altogether. "Rip It Up" was released in the United Kingdom as the fourth single from Shine On and as a limited edition "7" vinyl. It failed to chart in the UK.

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
Spread your legs for the silver screen
From the bedroom baby to the city of 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 and 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 of 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 seen
Daddy done bought you a record deal
Bargain basement boy how does it feel
From the bedroom baby to the city of light
You 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

Get on your feet girl
Rip it up, rip it up if your ever gonna make it
Get on your feet boy
Rip it up, rip it up if your ever gonna make it

Get on your feet girl
Rip it up, rip it up, rip it up
Rip it up, rip it up, rip it up
