Lyrics for Wake Me up Before You Go-Go by Wham!:

Intro
Jitterbug
Jitterbug
Jitterbug
Jitterbug

Verse 1
You put the boom boom into my heart
You send my soul sky high when your lovin' starts
Jitterbug into my brain (Yeah, yeah)
Goes a bang-bang-bang 'til my feet do the same

Pre-Chorus
But something's buggin' me
Something ain't right
My best friend told me what you did last night
Left me sleepin' in my bed
I was dreamin' but I should've been with you instead

Chorus
Wake me up before you go-go
Don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
I don't wanna miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go-go
'Cause I'm not plannin' on going solo
Wake me up before you go-go
Take me dancing tonight
I wanna hit that high
Yeah, yeah

Verse 2
You take the grey skies out of my way
You make the sun shine brighter than Doris Day
Turned a bright spark into a flame (Yeah, yeah)
My beats per minute never been the same
'Cause you're my lady, I'm your fool
It makes me crazy when you act so cruel
Come on, baby, let's not fight
We'll go dancing, everything will be all right

Chorus
Wake me up before you go-go
Don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
I don't wanna miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go-go
'Cause I'm not plannin' on going solo
Wake me up before you go-go
Take me dancing tonight
I wanna hit that high
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Baby

Post-Chorus
Jitterbug
Jitterbug

Bridge
Cuddle up, baby, move in tight
We'll go dancing tomorrow night
It's cold out there, but it's warm in bed
They can dance, we'll stay home instead
Jitterbug

Chorus
Wake me up before you go-go
Don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
I don't wanna miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go-go
'Cause I'm not plannin' on going solo
Wake me up before you go-go
Take me dancing tonight
Wake me up before you go-go
(Don't you dare, to leave me hanging on like a yo-yo-yo-yo-yo)
Don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
(Take me dancing)
I don't wanna miss it when you hit that high
(A boom-boom-boom-boom, oh)
Wake me up before you go-go
'Cause I'm not plannin' on going solo
(A boom-boom-boom-boom, yeah, yeah, yeah!)
Wake me up before you go-go
Take me dancing tonight
Yeah, yeah

Song Facts

The idea for the chorus of the song came from a note left by bandmate Andrew Ridgeley:

Don’t forget to wake me up up before you go go, George

Apparently it wasn’t a cute way of saying “before you go”, it was just a typographical error.
