Singing

Give It Up is a song performed by Jade West and Cat Valentine at the Karaoke Dokie in the Victorious hour long special Freak the Freak Out. The in-universe original artist is unknown. It was written by Dan Schneider, Michael Corcoran and CJ Abraham.

Give

In the show

Though the song was performed by both Cat and Jade, it was picked by Jade, who had to be under the impression that Cat was going to do as well with the song as she did. In the context of the Schneider-verse, "Give It Up" is an already existing somewhat risqué pop song. Thus, it can be heard as part of the DJ's playlist in the iCarly episode that crosses over with Victorious, called iParty with Victorious, though there is a goof - the song heard in the episode is played as sung by Cat and Jade.

In Tori Goes Platinum, the song is performed by Tara Ganz during her audition to Platinum Music Awards' contest.

In real life

According to Dan Schneider's twitter, the song was supposed to be released on iTunes in early December. Instead an illegal copy was added on January 2, 2011, and removed later on that month. It was also listed in Amazon as an MP3 illegally under similar circumstances. The listing can be found here, but the song is no longer available. Ariana Grande stated on her Twitter that the song was inspired by "Lady Marmalade". The song is on the Victorious soundtrack, both on CD and on legal downloads as of August 2, 2011.

Lyrics

Liz:
Someday, I'll let you in
Treat you right
Drive you out of your mind
Both:
Ooh
Ariana:
You never met a chick like me
Burn so bright
I'm gonna make you blind

Both:
Always want what you can't have
Is it so bad if you don't get what you wanted?
Make you feel good
As I whip you into shape, yeah boy
Let's get it started!

Give it up, you can't win
'Cause I know where you been
Such a shame you don't put up a fight
That's a game that we play at the end of the night
It's the same old story but you never get it right
Give it up

Come a little closer
Come a little closer baby, baby
Come a little closer
Come a little closer baby, baby

Liz:
So stop trying to walk away
No, you won't ever leave me behind
Ariana:
Nooooo
You better believe
That I'm here to stay (Liz: That's right)
'Cause you're the shade
And I'm the sunshine
Ooooooh

Both:
Look at me, boy
'Cause I got you where I want you
Isn't it so exciting?
Wanna shake you, wanna break you
Take the backseat, boy
'Cause now I'm driving

Give it up, you can't win
'Cause I know where you been
Such a shame you don't put up a fight
That's a game that we play at the end of the night
It's the same old story
But you never get it right
Give it up

Ariana:
Ooooooooooh (Liz: Ooooh)
Huhhhhhh
Hey, yeah, ohhhhhhhhh

Both:
Come a little closer
Come a little closer, baby, baby
Come a little closer
Come a little closer; baby, baby
Come a little closer
Come a little closer, baby
If you are my baby then I'll make you crazy tonight (Ariana: Ooooh)

Look at me boy
'Cause I got you where I want you
Isn't it so exciting?
Wanna shake you, wanna break you
Take the backseat, boy,
'Cause now I'm driving

Give it up, you can't win
'Cause I know where you been
Such a shame you don't put up a fight
That's a game that we play at the end of the night
It's the same old story
But you never get it right
Give it up, ohh whoa, yeah

Jade:
Someday, I'll let you in
Treat you right
Drive you out of your mind
Cat and Jade:
Ooh
Cat:
You never met a chick like me
Burn so bright
I'm gonna make you blind

Cat and Jade:
Always want what you can't have
Is it so bad if you don't get what you wanted?
Make you feel good
As I whip you into shape, yeah boy
Let's get it started!

Give it up, you can't win
'Cause I know where you been
Such a shame you don't put up a fight
That's a game that we play at the end of the night
It's the same old story but you never get it right
Give it up

[Vega household]
Tori: You gotta take this!
Trina: No! [struggles with Tori and swings on her]
Tori: [ducks] Did you just swing on me?!
Trina: Maybe.
Tori: Take the pill!
Trina: No! [tussles with Tori who gets it in her mouth]
Tori: Ha! [grabs a water bottle] Now swallow it! [dumps the water over Trina who protests] Get it down there!
