Little Feat – Shake Me Up lyrics

Bill Payne, Martin Kibbee, Paul Barrere, Craig Fuller
Jump start my heart I'm all broke down
Hot wired and short of cash just outside of town
Roll the dice, I'll take the chance
Played out... there ain't no doubt I need a new romance

Seems I'm short a dime on my nickel bet
Waitin' for my number, but it ain't come up yet
Change my luck.. I'm on my knees
Let's see how good it gets

Shake me up, (shake me up)
Shake me up, (shake me up)
Shake me up
Baby I can take it
Don't care how ya do it
Just shake it

Spendthrift and foolish, beaten like a mule
Cotton mouthed... so confused... stumblin' like a fool
Hold me up... I'm sinkin' low...
I got... one shot... so come on girl let's go

Got that kinda something that turns my head around
Got the walk... got the talk
Let's take it on downtown

Shake me up, (shake me up)
Shake me up, (shake me up)
Shake me up
Come on girl get to it
I don't care how ya do it
Just shake me

Sounds like a diamond back, feels like a heart attack
When ya shake it
Love the way ya move and everything you do
Got me runnin' hot... I'm shakin now... so please don't stop

I got it bad but baby that's no crime
On a flight tomorrow night... somewhere down the line
Treat me right, shake me while you can
Feel free... give me everything you can

Shake me up, (shake me up)
Shake me up, (shake me up)
Shake me up
Baby let's get through it
I don't care how ya do it
Just shake me
