Bonnie Raitt – Shake A Little lyrics

In the shadow of your father
Sweet brown eyes of the one I love
I can't wait another minute baby
To do the things that we never done
Everybody gets hungry sometimes
Your love is like a kettle on
In the shadow of your father
Guess I get a little sad sometimes

Shake a little for me baby
Take me to the water when my well runs dry
Shake a little for me baby
Just a little now
Just a little now

Everybody gets lonely sometimes
Guess a stranger is a friend in need
In the shadow of this New York skyline
All these stories looking down on me
Everybody feels the water rising
Could go under or enjoy the ride
Ah when you're dancing for me now baby
I don't feel so small against the tide

Shake a little for me baby
Take me to the water when my well runs dry
Shake a little for me baby
Shake a little for me baby
Take me to the water when my cup runs dry
Shake a little for me baby
Just a little now
Just a little now
Just a little now
