  • Ooh I feel somethin' baby
    And I want you to know about it
    See I want you to feel it, too
    So just listen to me baby

    Can't stop me now hear what I say
    My feet want to move so get out my way
    I'm gonna have my say
    I'm going to every discotheque
    I'm gonna dance dance dance dance ooh
    'Till the break of day I say

    Shame shame shame hey shame on you
    If you can't dance too
    I said shame shame shame shame shame shame shame
    Shame on you
    If you can't dance too

    Don't stop the motion
    If you get the notion
    You can't stop the groove
    'Cause you just won't move
    Got my sunroof down
    Got my diamonds in the back
    Put on your shaky wig woman
    If you don't I ain't comin' back

    Shame shame shame hey shame on you
    If you can't dance too
    I said shame shame shame shame shame shame shame
    Shame on you
    If you can't dance too

    If you don't want to go
    Remember one monkey don't stop no show
    My body needs action ain't gonna blow
    Yes I'm going out and find a dancin' man

    If you really think you're fast
    Try to catch me if you can
    And I said shame shame shame yeah (ah) shame on you
    If you can't dance too
    It's a shame shame shame shame shame shame shame
    Shame on you
    If you can't dance too

    Shame shame shame hey shame on you
    If you can't dance too
    I said shame shame shame shame shame shame shame
    Shame on you
    If you can't dance too

    Don't stop the motion
    If you get the notion
    You can't stop the groove
    'Cause you just won't move
    Got my sunroof down
    Got my diamonds in the back
    Put on your shaky wig woman
    If you don't I ain't comin' back

    Shame shame shame hey shame on you
    If you can't dance too
    I said shame shame shame shame shame shame shame
    Shame on you
    If you can't dance too

    Shame, shame, shame, shame on you
    If you can't dance too
    Shame, shame, shame, shame on you
    If you can't dance too
    Shame, shame, shame, shame on you
    If you can't dance too Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Camille from Toronto, OhPairing veteran blues vocalist Shirley Goodman with All Platinum artist Jesus Alvarez was a stroke of genius! This is one of those songs that leaves you much happier than your were just before you heard it. Love how Shirley's voice is so pure and then Jesus comes in screaming, altho still very much in tune. They should play this more on the radio. I'm surprised to see it was popular in 1975, I would have thought it came out in the late 70s or early 80s.
  • Paul from Croydon, PaI remember skipping school in 74-75, taking the train to center city Philly and hearing this song blaring from the music shops along Chestnut St. alongside of the movie theaters when the Who's "Tommy" was the big sensation. With such an infectious beat and guitar/banjo riff, you could'nt help but smile at and get involved in a little sidewalk shuffling with the sisters standing in the doorways... we weren't quite sure what was around the corner musically but songs like this helped lead the way for what was to come. A simple song - and yes, simple pleasures are truly the BEST! Shake 'yo tailfeathers, mama! Peace!
  • Alf from Kingston, CanadaAwesome song, grade 6 memories, luv it.
