  • Why's everything a problem why's everything a beef with you
    Not tired of playing games that you always lose
    Turning your brain to mush with that rhythm and booze
    Dissin love from those that always cared for you

    Back then you didn't listen to what was true…shake it loose
    Now its all we wanna hear wanna hear it from you…shake it loose.
    Its not about right its not about wrong…shake it loose
    Like marvin gaye said lets get it on

    Shake that monkey off your back
    Shake it loose
    Break these chains and this noose
    Not gunna hunt you, hunt no more
    Shake that monkey off your back
    And free your soul

    Back in the day I did alot of things I wish I coulda changed
    Back in the day I seen stuff that stayed the same
    My brothers used to say dont be scared of life
    My mama used to say she'll make everything alright

    See back then you didn't listen to what was true…shake it loose
    Now its all we wanna hear wanna hear it from you…shake it loose.
    Its not about right its not about wrong…shake it loose
    Like marvin gaye said lets get it on

    Shake that monkey off your back
    Shake it loose
    Break these chains and this noose
    Not gunna hunt you, hunt no more
    Shake that monkey off your back
    And free your soul Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
