I feel uptight on a Saturday night
Nine o'clock, the radio's the only light
I hear my song and it pulls me through
Comes on strong, tells me what I got to do, I got to

Get up (everybody's gonna move their feet)
Get down (everybody's gonna leave their seat)
You gotta lose your mind in Detroit
Rock City

Get up (everybody's gonna move their feet)
Get down (everybody's gonna leave their seat)

Getting late, I just can't wait
Ten o'clock, and I know I gotta hit the road
First I drink, then I smoke
Start the car and I try to make the midnight show

Get up (everybody's gonna move their feet)
Get down (everybody's gonna leave their seat)

Moving fast down 95
Hit top speed, but I'm still moving much too slow
I feel so good, I'm so alive
Hear my song playing on the radio, it goes

Get up (everybody's gonna move their feet)
Get down (everybody's gonna leave their seat)

Twelve o'clock, I gotta rock
There's a truck ahead, lights staring at my eyes
Oh, my God, no time to turn
I got to laugh 'cause I know I'm gonna die, why?

Get up (everybody's gonna move their feet)
Get up (everybody's gonna leave their seat)
Get up!
