One, two, three go

My baby, don't mess around because she loves me so
And this I know for sure
But does she really want to but can't stand to see me
Walk out the door

Don't try to fight the feelin' 'cause the thought alone
Is killin' me right now
Thank God for mom and dad for stickin' through together
'Cause we don't know how

Hey ya, hey ya, hey ya, hey ya
Hey ya, hey ya, hey ya, hey ya

You think you've got it, oh, you think you've got it
But got it just don't get it 'til' there's nothin' at all
We get together, oh, we get together
But separates always better when there's feelin's involved

If what they say is, nothin' is forever
Then what makes it, then what makes it, then what makes it
Then what makes it, then what makes it love the exception
So why oh, why oh, why oh, why oh, why oh are we so in denial?
When you know we're not happy here

Y'all don't want me here you just wanna dance

(Hey ya, hey ya)
Don't want to meet your daddy
(Hey ya)
Just want you in my caddy
(Hey ya)

Don't want to meet your momma
(Hey ya)
Don't want to meet your momma
(Hey ya)

I'm, I'm, I'm just bein' honest
(Hey ya)
I'm just being honest
(Hey ya)

Hey, common now, alright now, fellows, yeah
Now what's cooler than bein' cool? Ice cold
I can't hear ya, I say, what's, what's cooler than bein' cool? Ice cold

Alright, alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright

Okay now ladies, yeah
We gonna break this thang down in just a few seconds
Now don't have me break this thing down for nothin'
Now, I wanna see y'all on y'all baddest behavior
Gimme some sugar, I am your neighbor

Here we go
Shake it, shake it, shake it
Shake it, shake it, shake it
Shake it, shake it, shake it
Shake it like a Polaroid picture

Shake it, shake it, shake it
Shake it, shake it, shake it
Shake it, shake it, shake it
Shake it like a Polaroid picture

Shake it, shake it, shake it
Shake it, shake it, shake it
Shake it, shake it, shake it
Shake it like a Polaroid picture

Shake it, shake it, shake it
Shake it, shake it, shake it
Shake it, shake it, shake it
Shake it like a Polaroid picture

Hey ya, hey ya, hey ya, hey ya
Hey ya, hey ya, hey ya, hey ya
