Romantics, The - Rock You Up Lyrics

You know, you look a little lonely
Well, I can keep you company
You want to make it with somebody
Well baby, won't you make it with me

I wanna have a good time, it's all right
Oh baby whatcha doin' later on tonight
I wanna rock you up
Rock you up
Rock you up
Rock you up

You want to do a little dancing
Well, music never let you down
But if you're ready for romancing
Well, honey, better hang around, yeah

I wanna have a good time, it's all right
Oh baby whatcha doin' later on tonight
I wanna rock you up
Rock you up
Rock you up
Rock you up
I wanna rock you up
Rock you up
Rock you up

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha

You know, you look a little lonely
Well, I can keep you company
When I see you move your little body
Well, don't you know you put me in heat, ha

I wanna have a good time, it's all right
Oh baby whatcha doin' later on tonight

I wanna rock you up
Rock you up
Rock you up
Rock you up
I wanna rock you up
Rock you up
Rock you up
Rock you up
I wanna rock you up
Rock you up
Rock you up
Rock you up
I wanna rock you up
Rock you up
Rock you up
Rock you up
I wanna rock you up
Rock you up
Rock you up
Rock you up
I wanna rock you up

  24. Enrique Ventura

    thanks for given me life in early 1980s .. was about give up then!! thank you!!!

  25. Ken Spurlock

    This is the epitome of power pop to me. One of the best live shows I have ever seen. Stumbled into a bar in Washington DC back in '81 (I think lol). Small joint - 2 sets - came out black leather, black guitars/drums. Second set was red leather suits, red guitars, red kit.  LOUD !!  Jaw dropper !!

    Sands of time

    Personally I've stumbled in on a few myself, back when. One night in Boston I came in out of the cold, and saw The Youngbloods just before they hit with "Get Together". Maybe a dozen other people there that night. Down in Key West one night on Duval St. I walked in to a joint and saw Tommy Tutone Jenny 867-5309. Sometimes it's just a matter of being in the right spot at the right time.

  36. SongsMyFatherWrote

    I remember when I worked in Ferndale, MI, circa 1995, The Romantics practice & recording studio shared a wall with the research lab that I was working in.  They were doing quite a bit of touring at the time, and when they prepared to go on the road,  they'd come and practice in their studio before heading out on tour.  I remember this particular song would shake the whole lab when they'd practice it.  It was cool.  I also remember talking to them about all kinds of music whenever they'd sit outside while on practice breaks.  They were really nice guys.

  45. Dman X

    The Romantics are pretty damn good! Never knew that, but I do just adore "Talking in Your Sleep," so I downloaded this!;)

    Steven .Wilkes

  52. Siva Prasad

    fantastic,superb,thank u!

  53. raythackston1960

    Their drummer left and started his own band...The Motor City Rockers in the late 80's early 90's. My old band did a show with them and they did rock for sure! The rest of the band played off and on with a different drummer and they still play some here and there. Not sure if the drummer is ever been back with them, I think there was some bad blood between them.

  54. American Born Patriot.

    They even appeared on Soul Train. I wonder what song was that, I'm very curious.

    Mike Simon

    Talking in your sleep was the song The Romantics played on Soul Train

  55. CrispyBacon

    I think this is their best song.

    They are playing in downtown Royal Oak tomorrow night for the free New Years Eve show, c'yall there!!

  56. john smith

    Tremendo rock. Nunca pasara de moda sin duda.

  61. john smith

  72. indiodormido

    Tremenda agrupación pionera de su epoca en el verdadero rock. Los extrañamos.

  73. R.U. Kiddingme

    A staple in my group's cover shows back in the 80s. We got to open for them a couple times back in these days. No, we didn't cover them. We played our own stuff. VERY nice guys and totally ROCK!

  74. KEITH T.

    this is also one of my favorite Romantics songs the funny thing about it it also reminds me of Marshall Crenshaw also of the Detroit Power Pop era
