Prince – Shake! lyrics

Performed by the time

Hey, hey people what you come here 4?
Come on everybody, lets get out on the floor.
All the pretty girls shaking what they got
The boys swear to God that they're all 2 hot

Everybody shake.
You got to shake something. My lord.
Shake! You got 2 shake something.

Come on pretty baby now don't be shy.
New liberated girl, ask a guy
We can go dancing baby every night
Shake! Shake, shake shake! Shake!
But you got 2 shake your body til the early, early light.

Everybody shake. (shake, shake, shake)
You got 2 shake something. My lord.
Shake! (shake, shake, shake)
You got 2 shake something
Sing with me now...

Lucys standing there with the false hair on
Don't shake it 2 hard or that hair will be gone (oops)
Marilyns so worried about her 2 left feet
Pretty thing keeps worrying about keeping on her feet

That don't matter yall, come on
Shake! Oh lord. You got 2 shake something.
Everybody shake. (shake, shake, shake)
You got 2 shake something. (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Shake! Come on yall. You got 2 shake something.
Shake! (shake, shake, shake)

Hey, hey, people what you come here 4? We want to shake something.
Come on everybody lets get out on the floor. Gotta shake something.
You shake it 2 the north, you can shake it 2 the south. Gotta shake something.
(somebody help me with this)
Shake! If you come 2 party now open up your mouth. Gotta shake something.
Come on, oh yeah. Yeah.
Shake! Shake. You gotta shake something.
Oh don't stop. Oh. Shake! (shake, shake, shake)
Shake! (shake on it... For me)
Ure hired. Lets go. Shake! Shake!
Got to shake something
