When a problem comes along, you must whip it

I can’t help it. This is one of my favorite songs. It makes me laugh, good day or bad.

Devo - Whip It 278x277“Whip It” by Devo
Crack that whip
Give the past the slip
Step on a crack
Break your mama’s back

When a problem comes along, you must whip it
Before the cream sits out too long, you must whip it
When something’s going wrong, you must whip it

Now whip it into shape
Shape it up
Get straight
Go forward
Move ahead
Try to detect it
It’s not too late to whip it
Whip it good

When a good time turns around, you must whip it
You will never live it down unless you whip it
No one gets their way until they whip it
I say whip it, whip it good
I say whip it, whip it good

Crack that whip
Give the past the slip
Step on a crack
Break your mama’s back

When a problem comes along, you must whip it
Before the cream sits out too long, you must whip it
When something’s going wrong, you must whip it

Now whip it into shape
Shape it up
Get straight
Go forward
Move ahead
Try to detect it
It’s not too late to whip it into shape
Shape it up
Get straight
Go forward
Move ahead
Try to detect it
It’s not too late to whip it
Whip it good

Songwriters: Mark Allen Mothersbaugh and Gerald Casale.
