In the song Jeepers creepers by Louis Armstrong, there is a line that goes like this:
Oh, gosh all, git up, how'd they get so lit up?
It refers to the eyes of a person. My question is: what does "gosh all, git up" mean in this sentence? I think gosh all is a simple exclamation. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines git-up as
drive, energy, aggressiveness.
This makes no sense to me.
