about

An infectious working-class anthem originally written by ex-pat Novocastrian Larry Van Kriedt for his band Non Stop Dancers. The "hit the town after work" sentiment of the lyric belies a 40s-era sophistication which is exploited to great effect with wild sax solos from jazz legend Andy Firth.

lyrics

Wake up cats You bussed into the city hard labour
I spend my days workin’ and sweatin’
On the factory floor
But I don’t mind cuz I don’t owe nobody no favours
Yeah 5 O’clock I’m walkin' right out the door

Be-bop party night and the mood is right
Were gonna shake 'em up
Shake 'em down
Shake 'em all down in be-bop town

Were gonna shake this city
Shock this town
Were gonna turn this city upside down
Shake this city (Yeah yeah)
Shock this city (Yeah yeah)
Shake this city to the ground

Well there’s a party tonight
And the bathroom mirror is steaming
I’m all dressed up and like flash I’m out the gate
A little later on and my automobile is cruising
My girl’s at the wheel I’m runnin’ ‘bout a minute late

Be-bop party night and the mood is right
Were gonna shake 'em up
Shake 'em down
Shake 'em all down in be-bop town

Were gonna shake this city
Shock this town
Were gonna turn this city upside down
Shake this city (Yeah yeah)
Shock this city (Yeah yeah)
Shake this city to the ground

Be-bop party night and the mood is right
Were gonna shake 'em up
Shake 'em down
Shake 'em all down in bebop town

Were gonna shake this city
Shock this town
Were gonna turn this city upside down
Shake this city (Yeah yeah)
Shock this city (Yeah yeah)
Shake this city to the ground
Shake this city
Shock this City
Gonna shake this city to the ground
Yeah shake this city
Shock this city
Gonna shake this city to the ground
