  • I'll drive a million miles
    To be with you tonight
    So if you're feeling low
    Turn up your radio
    The words we use are strong
    They make reality
    But now the music's on
    Oh baby dance with me yeah

    Rip it up
    Move down
    Rip it up
    Move it down to the ground
    Rip it up
    Cool down
    Rip it up
    And get the feeling not the word

    Everybody have fun tonight
    Everybody have fun tonight
    Everybody Wang Chung tonight
    Everybody have fun tonight
    Everybody Wang Chung tonight
    Everybody have fun

    Deep in the world tonight
    Our hearts beat safe and sound
    I'll hold you so close
    Just let yourself go down

    Rip it up
    Move down
    Rip it up
    Move it down to the ground
    Rip it up
    Cool down
    Rip it up
    Get out what's inside of you

    Everybody have fun tonight
    Everybody have fun tonight
    Everybody Wang Chung tonight
    Everybody have fun tonight
    Everybody have fun tonight
    Everybody Wang Chung tonight
    Everybody have fun

    On the edge of oblivion
    All the world is Babylon
    And all the love and ev'ryone
    A ship of fools sailing on
    (Everybody)
    Everybody have fun tonight
    (Everybody)
    Everybody have fun tonight

    Across the nation
    Around the world
    Everybody have fun tonight
    A celebration so spread the word

    Everybody have fun tonight
    Everybody have fun tonight
    Everybody Wang Chung tonight
    Everybody have fun tonight
    Everybody Wang Chung tonight
    Everybody have fun tonight
    Everybody have fun

    Everybody

  • Esskayess from Dallas, TxThere are 2 versions of this song. The longer one has an extra synth-drenched bridge where you hear a fellow ask "Does anybody know what a Wang Chung is?"
  • Esskayess from Dallas, TxA friend of mine played this at his wedding party. Fit the mood perfectly. Everybody was Wang Chung-ing like crazy!
  • Paul from Detroit, MiA great song, that only reached #76 in the UK? WHAT??!
  • Marcus from Houston, TxOne of the best party/ dance songs of the 80's. Great club music.
  • Eric from Beaverton, OrI'm surprised there are no comments on this song. :) As for the meaning of "Everybody Wang Chung tonight", I always thought that "Wang Chung" as a verb meant to listen to Wang Chung. :)
