Shut up already, damn!

Tell me who n this house know about the quake? (We do)
I mean really, really (Haha...)
If U know how 2 rock, say "Yeah" (Yeah)
If U know how 2 party, say "Oh yeah" (Oh yeah)
But if U ain't hip 2 the rare housequake
Shut up already, damn!
Housequake, everybody jump up and down
Housequake, there's a brand new groove goin' round (Housequake)
N ur funky town (Housequake)
And the kick drum is the fault
U gotta rock this mutha, say "Uh" (Housequake)
We gotta rock this mutha, say "Uh uh" (Housequake)
We're gonna show U, uh, what 2 do
Now put ur foot down, huh, on the 2
U jump up on the 1, now U're havin' fun
Huh, U're doin' the Housequake
Hey, question: does anybody know about the quake? (Yeah!)
Bullshit!
U can't get off until U make the house shake
Now everybody clap ur hands, c'mon
Let's jam, y'all (Let's jam)
Don't wait 4 ur neighbor, green eggs and ham
We're doin' the Housequake

There's a brand new groove goin' around n ur city, n ur town
Housequake and the kick drum is the fault
Housequake (Housequake)
Housequake, U gotta rock this mutha (Gotta rock this mutha)
Housequake
Housequake, U gotta rock this mutha down, come on
Uh, Housequake
Uh, Housequake

Now that U got it, let's do the twist
A little bit harder than they did n '66
A little bit faster than they did n '67
Twist little sister and go 2 heaven
Come on, y'all, we got 2 jam b4 the police come
A groove this funky is on the run, hey
Shake ur body till ur neighbor stare at cha
Quake, quake, quake
Quake, quake, quake (Ahh, ooh)

Housequake, everybody, everybody jump up and down
Housequake, there's a brand new groove, groove that's goin' around
Housequake n this city, n this funky town
Housequake and the saxophone is the fault, check it out
If U can't rock steady, shut up already
Damn, U got 2 get off if U know what I'm talkin' about
On the 1, y'all say "Housequake"
Top of ur body, let me hear U shout, say "Housequake"
My Lord
Housequake
My Lord
Housequake
Bullshit! Louder, say it!
Housequake!
Ooh wee
Shockalocka boom!
What was that? Aftershock!
Everybody, everybody U gotta rock, U gotta rock, come on

We're gonna shake, we're gonna quake
Cuz we got the baddest groove that we could make
We on the 2, y'all, the drummer's gonna tap
We gonna sing it and rock this mother 2 the max
And that's a fact
Housequake, c'mon, say it (Housequake)
Whoo, c'mon
U can't follow it
We got the baddest jam n the land
Everybody shut up, listen 2 the band

Woo, Housequake
Shut up already, damn
