  • I'd like to be somebody else and not know where I've been
    I'd like to build myself a house out of plasticine
    Ah, shake along with me
    Ah, shake along with me

    I've been driving in my car with my friend Mister Soft
    Mister Clean and Mister Ben are living in my loft
    Ah, shake along with me
    Ah, shake along with me

    I'm sorry but I just don't know
    I know I said I told you so
    When you're happy and you're feeling fine
    Then you'll know it's the right time
    Then you'll know that it's the right time

    To shake along with me
    Shake along with me
    Shake along with me
    Shake along with me

    Mister Sifter sold me songs
    When I was just sixteen
    Now he stops at traffic lights
    But only when they're green

    Ah, shake along with me
    Ah, shake along with me
    Ah, shake along with me
    Ah, shake along with me
    Shake along with me
    Shake along with me
    Shake along with me
    Shake along with them
    Shake along with me
    Shake along with them
    Shake along with me Writer/s: Billy Davis, Noel Gallagher, Roger Cook, Roger Greenaway, William Backer
