Lyrics

  • SHAKE IT BABY BEFORE IT SHAKES YOU
  • GET IT BABY AND LET IT TAKE YOU WHERE YOU WANT IT TO
  • DON’T SAY MAYBE, THAT JUST WON’T DO
  • YOU SAY I’M CRAZY, BUT THIS MUSIC’S GOT ME FEELING GOOD
  • I KNOW IT’S FEVER BUT I DON’T NEED A CURE
  • YOU’RE THE DOCTOR AND I’M YOUR PATIENT THAT’S FOR SURE
  • AND I’M YOUR PATIENT THAT’S FOR SURE
  • HEAR IT BABY SNEAKING ON THROUGH
  • YOU’LL KNOW IT BABY
  • WHEN THAT RHYTHM GETS INSIDE YOUR SHOES
  • NOW DON’T SAY MAYBE YOU KNOW IT’S GOOD FOR YOU
  • DON’T DRIVE ME CRAZY, JUST TELL ME WHAT YOU’RE GONNA DO
  • DON’T RUN BABY I’M TELLING YOU
  • AND IT’S TOO LATE BABY ‘COS THIS RHYTHM IS CREEPING UP ON YOU
  • YOU KNOW IT’S CREEPING UP ON YOU
  • WE GOT THAT JACK KNIFE BEAT A KILLER OF A BACK BEAT
  • SOUNDS LIKE AN ICE TRUCK ROLLING DOWN A BACK STREET
  • WE GOT THE WHOLE THING GOING LIKE A PNEUMATIC DRILL
  • THE GUITAR MANS PLAYING LIKE HE’S FIT TO KILL
  • OH YEAH
  • WE GOT THAT JACK KNIFE BEAT A KILLER OF A BACKBEAT
  • SIPHON OFF THE SYRUP LET IT TAKE A BACKSEAT
  • WHAT’S COOKING IN THE KITCHEN HAS BOILED TO THE BRIM
  • WHAT’S BREWING IN THE BASEMENT IS BOUND TO OVERSPILL
  • OH YEAH
  • SHAKE IT BABY BEFORE IT SHAKES YOU
  • GET IT BABY AND LET IT TAKE YOU WHERE YOU WANT IT TO
  • DON’T SAY MAYBE, THAT JUST WON’T DO
  • YOU SAY I’M CRAZY, BUT THIS MUSIC’S GOT ME FEELING GOOD
  • CALL IT FEVER BUT I GOT THE CURE
  • YOU’RE THE DOCTOR AND I’M YOUR PATIENT THAT’S FOR SURE
  • AND I’M YOUR PATIENT THAT’S FOR SURE
