I'm Shakin'

Album: Blunderbuss (2012)
  • Yeah, when you touch my hand and talk sweet talk
    I got a knockin' in my knees and a wobble in my walk
    And I'm tremblin'
    That's right, you got me shakin'

    When you take me in your arms and talk romance
    My heart starts doin' that Saint Vitu's dance
    And I'm pantin'
    Oh and I'm shakin'

    Early in the morning time
    Late in the middle of the night
    Whenever this chill comes over me
    I wanna hug you with all of my might
    That's right and I'm sweatin'
    Oh, yeah you got me shakin'
    Mm, you got me sweatin'
    Oh, yeah you got me shakin' girl

    A chill and a fever, so I've been told
    Makes your head spin around and your feet run cold
    I got fever, yeah
    Fever yeah I burn forsooth

    I feel like I been run right through the mill
    And I can't move around and I can't stand still
    I'm Bo Didley
    Oh, you got me shakin'
    I'm so jittery
    That's right, you got me shakin'

    Well Samson was a mighty good man
    Strongest in his day (Then along came Delilah and clipped his wig)
    And it looks like you took me the same old way
    So I'm nervous
    Oh and I'm shakin'
    Alright, you got me nervous
    Yeah I'm shakin' and jumpin'

    A storm rocks a ship on a sea (A storm rocks a ship on a sea)
    The wind shakes the leaves on a tree (The wind shakes the leaves on a tree)
    And I'm a nervous wreck and I'm all shook up
    And that's what you're doin' to me right now
    And I'm jumpin'
    That's right, you got me shakin'
    Oh and I'm jumpin'
    That's right, you got me shakin'
    Oh, you got me shakin'
    That's right, you got me nervous
    But now I'm shakin'
    Oh, you got me shakin' Writer/s: RUDOLPH TOOMBS
