Ray Charles – Shake Your Tail lyrics

{ D } shake your tail Ray Charles
{ lead voice, keys, solo }
Well I heard about the fella you've been dancing with
All over the neighbourhood
So why didn't you ask me baba
Or didn't you think I could
{ band joins in }
Well I know that the Boogiloo is out of sight
But the shingaling she's paying tonight
But if that were you and me hotta baba
I would have shown you how to do right
Do it right, (ah ha), do it right
Do it right, (do it right), ((do it right)) { C # }
((Twisting, shake-it shake-it shake-it shake-it baba))
((Heaven go loop-dee-loop)), shake it up baba
((Heaven go loop-dee-li))
{ low } Bend over and let me see you shake your tail feather
{ mid joins } Bend over and let me see you shake your tail feather
{ All } Come on and let me see you shake your tail feather
Come on and let me see you shake your tail feather
{ repeat chorus }
Come on! Come on baba!
Come on-on, yeah come on babe
Alright, do the twist
Do the fly, oh!
Do the swim, ha ha ha
And do the bird
Wo do the jerk
And do the monkey
Hey hey watoosie
And uh what about the fool
Do the mash potato!
What about the boogiloo
Or the phoney moroney
Come on and do the twist
Twisting, shake-it shake-it shake-it shake-it baba
Twisting, skake-it shake-it shake-it shake-it baba
{ end }
