I'll take you home if you don't leave me at the front door (leave me at the front door)
Your body's cold, but girl we're getting so warm
And I was thinking of ways that I could get inside (get inside)
Tonight you're falling in love (let me go now)
This feeling's tearing me up (here we go now)

Now if she does it like this, will you do it like that?
Now if she touches like this, will you touch her right back?
Now if she moves like this, will you move her like that? (Come on)

Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it
Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it
Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it
Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it
Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it

Your lips tremble but your eyes are in a straight stare (straight stare)
We're on the bed but your clothes are laying right there
And I was thinking of places that I could hide (I could hide)
Tonight you're falling in love (let me go now)
This feelings tearing me up (here we go now)

Now if she does it like this, will you do it like that?
Now if she touches like this, will you touch her right back?
Now if she moves like this, will you move her like that? (Come on)

Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it
Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it
Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it
Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it
Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it

I saw you dancing and I couldn't get you off my mind
(I could tell that you could tell that I was takin' my time)
I was thinking of ways that you would stay and be mine
(Your body's shaking, turn me on, so I can turn off the lights)

Now if she does it like this, will you do it like that?
Now if she touches like this, will you touch her right back?
Now if she moves like this, will you move her like that? (Come on)

Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it
Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it
Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it
Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it
Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it


Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it
Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it
Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it
Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it
Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, uh shake it

    To Shibby. I never said shocked. Trust me, I'm not shocked at all. The "awkward" was more of a play on words since the guitarists sister is Miley Cyrus, who (annoying) always says "Awkward!".
    I wish people would stop and think about it. I agree with the person that wrote about "if you aren't ready for a kid, you're not ready for sex". Even if you take out Christian morals, you should keep that in mind. Because the only gaurantee for no baby is abstinence. Plain and simple.
    The reason why I mentioned the Christian background is because that's what the Cyrus family claims to be. I won't go off on a tangent. But I will say that a family in the public eye shouldn't be throwing that word around unless they are ready to be watched on their every move.
    To the guy saying to get our minds out of the gutter. Stop fooling yourself. It's about s*. Just has a catchy tune so people will dance to it.

    Superstar123 (oh what do you know, another irony, bet he or she or it couldn't be a superstar to save their life. Anyway.) it's not all americans at all, shall I tell you why? Cos I'm british, and every british friend that I have spoken too, like this song. So what if the lyrics are a little. Oh how did you put it?. Oh yeah, rude. Isn't that what society lives in today? How old are you? 2 or 102? Cos they're the only age groups that don't like 'rude' things, cos one's too young and the other is too old. Or has done it that many times, it becomes boring.
    What you need to do, superstar, is find songs you like, and comment on them, instead of commenting on songs you don't like, cos that just tells me that you have a secret fetish for the song.
    Anyway, tis a cool song.

    Sexybabi500.
    The shaking is part of the lapdance. Look closely at the lyrics. "I was thinking of ways that I could get inside". "Your lips tremble but your eyes are in a straight stare. You're on the bed but your clothes are laying right there".
    And about the question of why they are posting the song out for kids. Think of "I Kissed a Girl" and "Hollaback Girl" and "Lolipop" and the list goes on and on and on and on.

    Hey superstar123. You need to shut the h*l up and go back to Britain. No one wants to hear you b*ch on and on about some band that you don't like. I bet most Americans don't even like the music you listen to. I'm not saying this to be mean but what you said was really stupid and so what if we like Metro Station? Most people do and if they don't then they don't. It's their opinion and like I said no one cares what you think anyway. You need to shut your big, fat, bi*chy mouth and just crawl in a whole and listen to that crappy music that you listen to and leave us alone. If you want to be a b*ch about it then no one wants to hear it. So shut up.

    Superstar123, I looked on your profile and you've been saying all this crap about different songs and sooner or later your gonna get a lot of people pissed off and every song you listen to you either type a super b! Tchy meaning or something like that. Like I said before some people have different opinions and if you actually think this is funny. It's not. Go back to your little crawl space of a room and sit there a think of how many people you pissed off because seriously I'm getting really freakin ticked off about it and alot of people are ticked off about it. And I read one of your meanings and it said "I got touched way more than Ke$sha"! And I'm pretty sure Ke$ha is nicer and prettier than you will ever will be so shut up! Oh yeah and if you have been touched that much your probably a H0e!
