Shake up the station, a night up ahead
We're going to wake up the nation, don't be no drag
Shake up the station, a night on our hands

We're going to wake up the nation, don't be no drag
Shake up the station, a night up ahead
We're going to wake up the nation, don't be no drag
Shake up the station, a night on our hands
