Shake, Shake, Shake

Album: Shake! Shake! Shake! (2011)
  • Line the room

    Find a drink and drain the glass as fast as you can think to

    The cheap perfume

    In a room of people watching it intoxicates you

    They start to play

    Then they start to play

    It shakes the floor

    It stings your ears, but this is what we trade our hearing for

    The crowd stands still

    No one's moving, they’d just rather stand and wait until

    Someone starts to move

    Someone starts to move

    Shake, shake, shake

    It's all what you make of it, take what you will

    You know, know, know your only mistake

    Is if you stand still

    So shake, shake, shake

    It's all what you make of it, break it until

    You know, know, know your only mistake

    Is if you stand still

    It's only up to you

    It's only up to you

    Forget yourself

    This room is hot, but we can make it hotter with your help

    I’ll dance with you

    We’ll dance together until everybody’s moving too

    Everybody moves

    When everybody moves

    Chorus

    It's only up to you

    It's only up to you
