  • (The Queen of dance hall
    Representing you done know Michael
    They ready for shake their thing like a tambourine you know?
    What you say?)
    I'm ready Lady Saw
    Uh uh
    You're perfect just the way you are (I know),
    Just the way you are

    Shake it, shake it, shake it,
    Like a tambourine
    Come ma
    Shake it, shake it, shake it,
    You're the one for me
    Shake it, shake it, shake it
    Come on ma
    Shake it, shake it, shake it,
    You the dance hall queen

    Shake it, shake it mama, you the one for me
    I'm realizin' you the only one that's meant to be
    And when I wake up in the morning all I wanna see
    Is the sun that is shinin' on you next to me
    You got a little broken nail, got a hair outta place
    You got a little bit of extra middle right around the waist
    With all of them things I never ever hesitate
    'Cause the thing about you baby is the smile on your face
    I'm blowin' kisses at you girl and I hope they didn't miss
    The way you move your body made it hard for them to hit you
    I wish you would come a little closer
    Rub a little closer
    Mama say, mama kosa saying

    Shake it, shake it, shake it,
    Like a tambourine
    Shake it, shake it, shake it,
    You're the one for me
    Shake it, shake it, shake it
    Come on ma
    Shake it, shake it, shake it,
    You're the one for me
    Shake it, shake it, shake it,
    And we run the scene
    Shake it, shake it, shake it,
    You the one for me
    Shake it, shake it, shake it,
    I like that
    Come mama
    Shake it, shake it, shake,
    You the dance hall Queen

    I got love for you baby, never givin' it up
    And I love the way you love me, never gettin' enough
    I love the way you shake that little extra bit of butter
    When I see you move your body, girl it makes my heart a flutter
    When I see you dancin' on the living room floor,
    On the kitchen table better open up the door
    Bring the party to the street
    Because the street will love it more
    And if the people love the beat,
    Then the beat will love them more
    With the music blastin', the people clappin',
    The speakers shakin', the kids'll take it
    You're perfect, just the way you are
    You're perfect just the way you are

    Shake it, shake it, shake it,
    Like a tambourine
    Shake it, shake it shake it,
    You're the one for me
    Shake it, shake it, shake it
    Come on ma
    Shake it, shake it, shake it,
    You're the one for me
    Shake it, shake it, shake it,
    And we run the scene
    Shake it, shake it, shake it,
    You the one for me
    Shake it, shake it, shake it,
    I like that
    Come mama
    Shake it, shake it, shake,
    You the dance hall Queen

    Hey gyal them a bubble like a pot pon fire

    Firm and sturdy like a truck tire
    When we shake it man bawl fire.

    When we shake it man gather round
    That's how we get down.

    Shake it, shake it, shake it,
    You're the one for me
    Shake it, shake it, shake it
    And we run the scene

    I got love for you, in everything that I cook
