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 killing me right now
Thank God for Mom and Dad
For sticking 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
Till there's nothing at all

We get together
Oh, we get together
But seperate's always better
When there's feelings involved

If what they say is, "Nothing is forever"
Then what makes it, then what makes it
Then what makes it, then what makes it
Then what makes it, love 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! Hey ya!
(Just want you in my Caddy)
(Don't want to meet your momma)

Hey ya! Hey ya!
(Just want to make you cumma)
(I'm, I'm, I'm just being honest)
Hey ya! Hey ya!
(I'm just being honest)
Hey ya!

Hey, alright now
Alright now fellows, yeah
Now what's cooler than bein' cool?
Ice Cold
I can't hear ya
I say 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
Now 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
Lend me some suga, I am your neighbor
Here we go

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

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

(Now all Beyonce's and Lucy Liu's)
Shake it, shake it, shake it
Shake it, shake it, shake it
(And baby dolls, get on the floor)
Shake it, shake it
Shake it like a Polaroid picture, suga

(You know what to do)
Shake it, shake it, shake it
(You know what to do)
Shake it, shake it, shake it
Shake it, like a Polaroid picture
(You, know what to do)

Hey ya! Hey ya!
Hey ya! Hey ya!
Hey ya! Hey ya!
Hey ya! Hey ya!
Hey ya!
