  • Lyrics
  • When you move in right up close to me
    That's when I get the shakes all over me
    Quivers down my back bone
    I've got the shakes down the kneebone
    Yeah, havin' the tremors in the thighbone
    Shakin' all over

    Just the way you say goodnight to me
    Brings that feeling on inside of me
    Quivers down my back bone
    I've got the shivers down the thighbone
    Yeah, the tremors in my back bone
    Shakin' all over

    Quivers down my back bone
    Yeah, I have the shakes in the kneebone
    I've got the tremors in the back bone
    Shakin' all over

    Well, you make me shake and I like it, baby
    Well, you make me shake and I like it, baby
    Well, you make me shake and I like it, babyWriter/s: Johnny Kidd
