Shake Lyrics

by Alesha Dixon

Little lady with electric fever
All the guys, they run and hide
They're afraid of this pioneer
But peek-a-boo, I see you

Don't hold me down
I'm irrepressible
Dangerous ground
Stop bossing me around

The only time you can tell me what to do
Is when we're dancing
The only time you can tell me what to do
Is when we're dancing

Take this chance right now
To be my leader
Lay it on me, wow
Make me smile from ear to ear

Shake me up and break me down
I've got my dancing shoes on
So make me move
'Til I cry out like a hound

A pretty bird sitting in her birdcage
Should be up in the air to fly
Now you're here trying to clip these wings
But that won't do, who the hell are you?

I'll say it loud
Step back from the scene of the crime
I won't allow
Stand behind the yellow line

The only time you can tell me what to do
Is when we're dancing
The only time you can tell me what to do
Is when we're dancing

Take this chance right now
To be my leader
Lay it on me, wow
Make me smile from ear to ear

Shake me up and break me down
I've got my dancing shoes on
So make me move
'Til I cry out like a hound

Shake your pepper
Shake your tail feather
Shake your money maker
Hell even shake your grandma

Let it all hang out
And just scream and shout
Like me, like me, like me

Take this chance right now
To be my leader
Lay it on me, wow
Make me smile from ear to ear

Shake me up and break me down
I've got my dancing shoes on
So make me move
'Til I cry out like a hound
