Lyrics

Whip It Up (ver. 4)

Shout it from the rooftops
'Cause we don't really give a fuck
Let the neighbours hear us
Don't keep your spirit bottled up
No more tiptoeing in cotton undies in the sun

Whip it up
Whip-whip it up

[mumbling]

Shout it from the rooftops
'Cause we don't really give a fuck
Let the neighbours hear us
Don't keep your spirit bottled up
No more tiptoeing in cotton undies in the sun

Whip it up
Whip-whip it up

Whip It Up (ver. 6)

We went to a dark place
Darker than a prison cell
Beautiful boys in short shorts
On a cold night in Hell

I've always been into board games
I'll break us out of this joint
Murder, she wrote
Tripping in the Holiday Inn

Order milk for your gingerbread
Give me somethin' I can hold

Shout it from the rooftops
'Cause we don't really give a fuck
Let the neighbours hear us
'Cause all we really need is love
No more tiptoeing around the sanitarium
Whip it up
Whip-whip it up

We went to a dark place
Darker than a prison cell
