A man inside a room is shaking hands with other men
This is how it happens, I carefully laid the plans
Shake it, shake it baby
Shake your ass out in that street
You gonna make 'em scream some day, you're gonna make it big
You love so deep so tender
Your people and your land
You love until they can't recall who they are again
Work it, work it baby,
Work your way around that room
You're gonna make it big someday, you're gonna make a Boom
But I am, But I am, But I am
Not a number, not a name
But I am, But I am, But I am
A carefully laid plan
Shake what you mama gave you,
you know that it won't last
you're gonna taste the ground real soon
you're gonna taste the grass
A man inside a room is shaking hands with other men
This is how it happens, our world under command
Shake it, shake it baby
Shake your ass out in that street
You gonna make us scream some day, you're gonna make us weep
You gonna make us scream some day, you're gonna make big
