Shake Everybody say it (shake) Eearly in the morning (shake) Late in the evening (shake) In the midnight hour (shake) When the time's going bad, now (shake) Shake with the feeling (shake) Shake with the feeling
Listen while I talk to you, now Tell you what I'm gonna do, now There's a new thing going around, now I'll tell what I'm puttin' down, now
You move your body all around and just shake Oh, g'on, g'on, baby, now Oh, that's the way you do it Shake, shake, shake it, baby Shake it like a bowl of soup Let it go loop-de-loop, now Put your hands on your hip, now Come on and let your backbone slip Move your body like your hip and just shake!
Got to, got to have it, shake in the morning Early in the evening
A ring-a-ling-a-ling Honey, shakin' is the greatest thing But if you really roll Got to do the thing with soul Shake-it, shake with all your might now But if you do it, do it right now Put your hands on your hip, yeah Come on and let your backbone slip Move your body like your hip and just shake
Lord have mercy, now Early in the morning Late in the evening All night long, y'all
If you really want to really roll, now Gotta do the thing with soul, now Shake-it, shake with all your might, yeah Now, if you do it, do it right, now Let your body loop de lite and just
Lord have mercy, shale Everybody say it, shake One more time, said shake Everybody say it, said shake Everybody say it, said shake One more time, now, said shake Everybody louder Little bit louder

"White "Christmas" was so popular that Bing had to re-record the song five years after the original 1942 recording because the original masters had been worn out from all the pressings. This is the version that became a holiday tradition.
