Get this party started on a Saturday night
Everybody’s waitin’ for me to arrive

I got lotsa style, check my gold diamond rings
I can go for miles if you know what I mean

 I’m comin’ up so you better get this party started
I’m comin’ up so you better get this party started

Sendin’ out the message to all of my friends
We’ll be lookin’ flashy in my Mercedes Benz

I got lotsa style, check my gold diamond rings
I can go for miles if you know what I mean

Get this party started on a saturday night
Everybody’s waitin’ for me to arrive

I’m comin’ up so you better get this party started
I’m comin’ up so you better get this party started

Pumpin up the volume, breakin down’to the beat
Cruisin’ through the west side
We’ll be checkin’ the scene

Boulevard is freakin’ as I’m comin’ up fast
I’ll be burnin’ rubber, you’ll be kissin’ my a**

Pull up to the bumper, get out of the car
License plate says stunner #1 superstar

I’m comin’ up so you better get this party started
I’m comin’ up so you better get this party started

Get this party started (4)

Makin’ my connection as I enter the room
Everybody’s chillin’ as I set up the groove

Pumpin’ up the volume with this brand new beat
Everybody’s dancin’ and their dancin’ for me

I’m your operator, you can call anytime
I’ll be your connection to the party line

I’m comin’ up so you better get this party started
I’m comin’ up so you better get this party started

Get this party started(6)

Shirley Bassey LPs

Over the years I have received quite a lot of collections from (deceased) fans from all over the word. Lots of material I use for this blog but there also loads of LPs, singles, CDs, DVDs and videotapes.
As for the LPs there are many records I have 4 or more copies of. That is why I now offer you the chance to update your collection. Let me know which LPs are missing from your collection and I will send them to you for only the post and package costs.
