Uh, lately everybody's so self-conscious,
People talk about each other so heartless,
But I don't wanna hear those conversations,
I just wanna feel the good vibrations,

Whatever happened to the simple pleasures,
It's hard to live when there's so much pressure,
But I don't wanna think about the ending,
'Cause every moment is a new beginning,
Ohhhh ohhh, you know life's to short to be complicated,
Ohhhh ohhh, sometimes, sometimes, sometimes you gotta,

Shake, shake what your momma gave you,
Pull out your Michael J moves,
And dance with the record on,
Sometimes you gotta get down, down at the supermarket,
Even if there's people watchin'
Just because you like the song
Sometimes you gotta just shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake,
Sometimes you gotta just shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake,

(Uh, yeah) Yeah,

Do we really even know what matters,
When we're stuck inside the same old patterns,
You know it's easy to forget that feeling,
When the kid in your heart stops dreaming,

It doesn't matter if you're 6 or 60,
It doesn't matter if you're rich or thrifty,
If the moment feels right just do it,
Who cares if you're looking foolish,
Ohhhh ohhh, you know life's to short to be complicated,
Ohhhh ohhh, sometimes, sometimes, sometimes you gotta,

Shake, shake what your momma gave you,
Pull out your Michael J moves,
And dance with the record on,
Sometimes you gotta get down, down at the supermarket,
Even if there's people watching,
Just because you like the song,
Sometimes you gotta just shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake,
Sometimes you gotta just shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake,
Oooohhhhhhh,

Tell me, is it wrong if it makes you feel right,
You'll never know if you don't even try,
Let it go, you might find that you like to,

Shake, shake what your momma gave you,
Pull out your Michael J moves,
And dance with the record on,
Sometimes you gotta get down, down at the supermarket,
Even if there's people watching,
Just because you like the song,
Sometimes you gotta just shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake,
Sometimes you gotta just shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake,

Shake, shake what your momma gave you,
Pull out your Michael J moves,
And dance with the record on,
Sometimes you gotta get down, down at the supermarket,
Even if there's people watching, (hey)
Just because you like the song (just because you like the song),
Sometimes you gotta just shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, (Shake a little, shake a little now)
Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, (Shake a little, shake a little now)
Sometimes you've gotta shake,
Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, (Shake a little, shake a little now)
Ohhhhhhh,
shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, (Shake a little, shake a little now)

Sometimes you've gotta just shake.

    This song is to cheer you up, don't be shy, and this song is to support you, even if you're shy. And those people who laughs at you, don't even think about'em, or should I say, let them laugh at you, just let your feeling out, no matter if they laugh at you or making fun of you. If they do, they gonna be sorry for what they did to you. And that sorry feeling is never gonna end until you forgive them a what they did. And if you not, they gonna be sorry "Forever."
