Spoken:
'Yas, yas, ev'rybody
It's time to shake!
Look at that little gal out there
Doin' that shake dance.
Well, alright then.
That's what I'm talkin' about.
Well, alright

Sung:
Talkin' about shakin
On yo' hands and knees
Do that shake dance, as you please

Do the shake dance, mama
Do that shake dance, mama
Do that shake dance, mama
Do it as you please

I've got a woman
She's long an tall
Sleeps in the kitchen
With her feets in the hall

Do the shake dance, mama
Do that shake dance, mama
Do that shake dance, mama
Do it as you please

'Now, shake it for me'

(instrumental & sax)

Do that shake, mama
Just as you please
Do that shake
I mean, shake yo' knees!

Do the shake dance, mama
Do that shake dance, mama
Do that shake dance, mama
Do it as you please

Raise yo' hands high
Back against the wall
With the way you shake, mama
They are sho' bound to fall

Do the shake dance, mama
Do that shake dance, mama
Do that shake dance, mama
Do it as you please

'Play it, boy, play it'

(instrumental & piano)

'Shake it for me now'

(instrumental & sax)

'Shake it, shake it'

'Play it a long time'

(instrumental w/piano to end)

'Play it a long time'.
