The Rubettes is een Britse popgroep die in 1973 wordt opgericht. Hun eerste single Sugar Baby Love wordt een wereldhit en staat in 1974 zeven weken op 1 in de Top 40. Het is het begin van een indrukwekkende reeks: binnen slechts twee jaar worden nóg zes hits gescoord waarvan er maar liefst vijf in de top 10 belanden. Daarna is het plots afgelopen: Under One Roof (1976) en Baby I Know (1977) komen niet verder dan de Tipparade.

De groep kent een lange lijst leden en ex-leden en treedt in de loop der jaren in allerlei wisselende samenstellingen op. In 2016 viert de groep haar 40-jarig bestaan met een tournee met Alan Williams, die in 1981 ook nog solo de Tipparade bereikte met de single Doing Things With You.

Ah-thinkin' 'bout guitars when I was just a kid
Just lookin' back on the things we did

Like hangin' round at the local hop
With my candy
and my soda pop.

I guess I never really stood a chance
I liked the music
but I couldn't dance
I guess I've really learnt a lot since then

'Cause I can really do it now it's back again.

Yeah
I can do it
I can do it
I can really move
From my head right down to my blue suede shoes
I can really make the groove
I can do it

I can do it
I can really move.

I can really rock
ooh
I can do it
. . .

Dancin' was trouble thinkin' 'bout it now
I had no girl friend to show me how
I was too young to date
too old to wait.
It's kinda sad I was born too late
But like I said I learnt a lot since then
And I can really do it now
it's back again
I can do the jive
I can do the stroll
It's just another name for rock 'n' roll.

Yeah
I can do it
I can do it
I can really move

Yeah
I can do it
yeah I can do it
yeah.
I can really rock
ooh
I can do it
