Shake!

Hey, hey people, what U come here 4?
Come on everybody, let's get out on the floor
All the pretty girls shakin' what they got (Shake...)
The boys swear 2 God that they're all 2 hot

Everybody shake!
U got 2 shake something! My Lord
Shake! U got 2 shake something!

Come on pretty baby, now don't b shy
New liberated girl ask a guy
We can go dancing, baby, every night (Shake...)
But U got 2 shake that body till the early, early light

Everybody shake! (Shake shake shake)
U got 2 shake something! My Lord
Shake! (Shake)

Sing with me now
Oh, oh

Ruby standin' there with the bought hair on (Do do do...)
Don't shake it 2 hard or the hair'll b gone (Oops) (Da da)
Brother so worried about his 2 left feet
When he need 2 b worried 'bout keepin' on the beat

Shake, shake, U got 2 shake something!
