  • 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 Writer/s: SAM COOKE
