Lyrics
Well, my baby and me went out late Saturday night

I had my hair piled high and my baby just looked so right

Well-ell, pick you up at ten, gotta have you home at two

Mama don't know what I got in store for you

But that's all right, 'cause we're looking as cool as can be



Well, we found a little place that really didn't look half bad

I had a whiskey on the rocks, and changed half a dollar for the jukebox

Well-ell, I put a quarter right into that can, but all they played was disco, man

Come on, baby, baby, let's get out of here right away



We're gonna rock this town

Rock it inside out

We're gonna rock this town

Make 'em scream and shout

Let's rock, rock, rock, man, rock

We're gonna rock till we pop

We're gonna rock till we drop

We're gonna rock this town

Rock it inside out

(Rock it, rock right in!)



(Whoa!)

(Whoo!)

(Oh my god)

Whoo!



Well, we're having a ball just a-bopping on the big dance floor

Well, there's a real square cat, he looks a 1974

Well-ell, he looked at me once, he looked at me twice

Look at me again and there's a-gonna be fight

We're gonna rock this town

We're gonna rip this place apart



We're gonna rock this town

Rock it inside out

We're gonna rock this town

Make 'em scream and shout

Let's rock, rock, rock, man, rock

We're gonna rock till we pop

We're gonna rock till we drop

We're gonna rock this town

Rock this place apart



We're gonna rock this town

Rock it inside out

We're gonna rock this town

Make 'em scream and shout

Let's rock, rock, rock, man, rock

We're gonna rock till we pop

We're gonna rock till we drop

We're gonna rock this town

Rock it inside out



We're gonna rock this town

Rock it inside out

We're gonna rock this town

Rock it inside out

Whoo!

AHHHHHH THIS IS DELIGHTFUL! That is what I said out loud the moment this vid was done playing. What pure and utter joy you have created here. I notice that you put heavy emphasis on Kevin Kline's falling down AND on his sexy dancing, for which I acknowledge and appreciate you, friend. There are SO MANY great moments throughout - The Pirate King and Frederick with their foreheads together screaming on Rock, Rock, Rock! - that I can't even name them all. You definitely captured the pure glee I have always felt about this production and distilled it down into something concentrated and hilarious and adorable. I know I will watch this many many times when I need a pick me up.

Thank you thank you thank you for making me such an amazing vid!!!! <3

:D It was a fandom of my youth! I had it on a VHS tape recorded off of the Family Channel and watched it a LOT.

Same! I had the double-album on cassette also, and used to try to sing ALL the parts.

This is wonderful! It has been far, far too long since I saw this film.

Perfect choice of music, too.

This is awesome and delightful and I am very disturbed at how well the song fits the tempo of the dancing and choreography.

Nice job, really well done!

Somehow when I last watched this movie way back in the mid-80s I had no idea how gloriously slashy it was! I loved how you matched the choreography to the music down to that little flourish at the end.

Everything I know about this movie I've learned through Festivids. I feel like I seriously need to see this movie, but I'm worried that it can't possibly be as bonkers and amazing as you've made it out to be. That was a bunch of fun and then some!

You managed AMV-level parity between the music and dancing and on-screen singing.

GREAT!

This is AMAZING.

I usually find vids like this don't work, because I remember and can't help but prefer the original music, but wow, this is a wonder. (I did wish there were more of the girls, though.)

LOL. I always forget just how ridiculous Kevin Kline was in this. What a beautiful encapsulation.
