We were rippin' up
We were rockin' up
Roll it over and lay it down

We were shakin' up 
We were breakin' up
We were rockin' to the shang-a-lang sound of the music

Hey, hey, rockin' to the music
Hey, hey, rocking to the music
Rocking every night and day, hey hey

Well we sang shang-a-lang as we ran with the gang
Doin' doo wop be dooby do ay
We were all in the news
With our blue suede shoes
And our dancin' the night away

Yeah we sang shang-a-lang
And we ran with the gang
Doin' doo wop be dooby do ay
With the jukebox playing and everybody saying that
Music like ours couldn't die

We were grooving
We were movin'
Pussyfootin' and putting it round
We were boppin'
We were hoppin'
We were jumping to the shang-a-lang sound of the music

Hey, hey, rockin' to the music
Hey, hey, rockin' to the music
Rocking every night and day, hey hey

We sang shang-a-lang
And we ran with the gang
Doin' doo wop be dooby do ay
We were all in the news
With our blue suede shoes
And our dancin' the night away

Yeah we sang shang-a-lang
And we ran with the gang
Doin' doo wop be dooby do ay
With the jukebox playing and everybody saying that
Music like ours couldn't die

Shang-a-lang,
Shang-a-lang,
Shang-a-lang
Shang-a-lang, shang-a-lang, shang-a-lang

Yeah we sang shang-a-lang
And we ran with the gang
Doin' doo wop be dooby do ay
With the jukebox playing and everybody saying that
Music like ours couldn't die

Well we sang shang-a-lang
And we ran with the gang
Doin' doo wop be dooby do ay
We were all in the news
With our blue suede shoes
And our dancin' the night away

Bay City Rollers

The Bay City Rollers were a Scottish pop band whose popularity was highest in the 1970s. The British Hit Singles & Albums noted that they were "tartan teen sensations from Edinburgh", and were "the first of many acts heralded as the 'Biggest Group since The Beatles' and one of the most screamed-at teeny-bopper acts of the 1970s". For a relatively brief but fervent period (nicknamed "Rollermania"), they were worldwide teen idols. The group's line-up featured numerous changes over the years, but the classic line-up during its heyday included guitarists Eric Faulkner and Stuart Wood, singer Les McKeown, bassist Alan Longmuir, and drummer Derek Longmuir. more »
