"Shut Up" is a song by The Power Station, released on the album Living In Fear by Chrysalis-Capitol-Guardian Records on 30 September 1996.

About the songEdit

The song was written in the pre-recording stage of Living In Fear, with the same lineup as for their previous album in 1985 (Robert Palmer, Andy Taylor, John Taylor and Tony Thompson). However, John Taylor was going through a divorce at the time, as well as entering drug rehab, and pulled out before the song was recorded. Instead Bernard Edwards, the producer, played bass guitar and took over as the group's official fourth member.

"Shut Up" is an up-tempo jazz funk song, which showcases Robert Palmer's vocal ranges.

LyricsEdit

Get 'em off me, get 'em off me

Get their hands and their legs from above me
When you want it and you need it
But you can't seem to quite understand it

Get 'em off me, get 'em off me

Take their legs and their elbows from around me
Schizophrenia don't mean that you're living -
In the world not a dream

I said shut up, you're not incurably ill
You got the motivation, you got the pill
Don't mess it up, I go down on my knees
Don't blow it big time babe, I'm begging you please

I said shut up

I said shut up
What you complaining about?
You got the tonic money, you got the truth

Don't mess it up
Let's stick together on this
We got everything and more, so baby -
Why should we quit?

I said shut up
