  • Rosanna's daddy had a car she loved to drive
    Stole the keys one night and took me for a ride
    Turned up the music just as loud as it could go
    Blew out the speakers in her daddy's radio

    She was shakin' (oh oh ooh oh)
    Snappin' her fingers (oh oh ooh oh)
    She was movin' round and round (oh oh ooh oh)
    That girl was shakin' (oh oh ooh oh)

    We started drinkin', wasn't thinkin' too straight
    She was doin' 80 and she slammed on the brakes
    Got so high we had to pull to the side
    We did some shakin til the middle of the night

    Shakin' (oh oh ooh oh)
    Snappin' her fingers (oh oh ooh oh)
    She was up and down and round and round
    Shakin' (oh oh ooh oh)
    Shakin' (oh oh ooh oh) (oh oh ooh oh)
    (Oh oh ooh oh) (oh oh ooh oh)

    I got a little nervous
    When she took her coat off
    She looked so pretty
    Ahh yeah

    I'm always talkin' baby, talkin' too much
    I love that little girl and I just can't get enough
    It takes a lonely night with nowhere to go
    Just call Rosanna, it's a hell of a show

    And she's shakin' (oh oh ooh oh)
    Snappin' her fingers (oh oh ooh oh)
    She'll be movin' round and round (oh oh ooh oh)
    Oh she's shakin' (oh oh ooh oh)

    Shakin' (oh oh ooh oh)
    Snappin' her fingers (oh oh ooh oh)
    She'll be movin' up and down (oh oh oo oh)
    Round and round and round (oh oh ooh oh)
    And shakin' (oh oh ooh oh)

    Sha sha sha sha sha she was shakin'
    Sha sha sha sha sha she was shakin'
    Sha sha sha sha sha she was shakin'
    Sha sha sha sha sha she was shakin' Writer/s: EDDIE MONEY, ELIZABETH MYERS, RALPH CARTER
