>anybody has the lyrics for the beatles sonf "twist & shout".
This Isley Brothers song was excellently covered by the Beatles. They
Did several of their own versions, in terms of verse order and etc.,
Especially shortening it as time went on and they began using it to open
Every show (and tune up:-), before dropping it altogether when playing
Live.
Here (from memory - I *think* correct...) is the studio version - apologies
For any errors.
-----------
(Ascending "ah!"s, adding harmonies...)
Well, shake it up baby, now!
(Shake it up, baby)
Twist and shout!
(Twist and shout)
Well, come on baby now
(Come on, baby)
Come on and work it on out
(Work it on out - ooooh!)
Well, work it on out!
(Work it on out)
You know you look so good
(Look so good)
You know you got me goin' now
(Got me goin')
Just like I knew you would
(Like I knew you would - ooooh!)
- Lead break -
(Ascending "ah!"s again)
Shake it up baby, now!
(Shake it up, baby)
Twist and shout!
(Twist and shout)
Come on baby now
(Come on, baby)
Come on and work it on out
(Work it on out - ooooh!)
You know you're a twistin' little girl
(Twistin' little girl)
You know you twist so fine
(Twist so fine)
C'mon and twist a little closer now
(Twist a little closer)
And let me know that you're mine
(Let me know you're mine)
Well, shake it - shake it - shake it baby, now!
(Shake it up, baby)
Well, shake it - shake it - shake it baby, now!
(Shake it up, baby)
Well, shake it - shake it - shake it baby, now!
(Shake it up, baby)
(Ascending "ah!"s again, end)
