Alright,
Say yea (yea) ...

Shake it up, baby (shake it up, baby)
Twist and shout (twist and shout)
C'mon c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, baby (come on baby)
Come on and work it on out (work it on out)

You know you're lookin' so good (look so good)
You know you look so fine (look so fine)
Come on and twist a little closer (twist a little closer)
And let me know that you're mine (know you're mine)

Well, shake it, shake it, shake it, baby (shake it up, baby)
Shake it, shake it, shake it, baby, now (shake it up, baby)
Shake it, shake it, shake it, baby (shake it up, baby)
Ah ...

Baby (shake it up, baby)
Twist and shout (twist and shout)
C'mon c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, baby, now (come on baby)
Come on and work it on out (work it on out)

You know you look so good (look so good)
You know you look so fine (look so fine)
Come on and twist a little closer (twist a little closer)
And let me know that you're mine (let me know you're mine)

Shake it, shake it, shake it, baby (shake it up, baby)
Well, shake it, shake it, shake it, baby (shake it up, baby)
Well, shake it, shake it, shake it, baby, now (shake it up, baby)
Everybody say yea (yea) ...

Well, shake it, shake it, baby (shake it up, baby)
Twist and shout (twist and shout)
C'mon c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, baby, now (come on baby)
Come on and work it on out (work it on out)

You know you work it on out (work it on out)
You know you look so good (look so good)
You know you got me going (got me going)
Just like I knew that you would (knew you would)

Shake it up, baby (shake it up, baby)
Well, shake it, shake it up, baby, now (shake it up, baby)
Shake it, shake it, shake it, baby (shake it up, baby)
Shake it, shake it, baby, now (shake it up, baby)
Say yea (yea) ...
