The Mamas & The Papas – Twist And Shout lyrics

Shake it up, baby;
Now twist and shout.
Shake it, shake it up, baby;
C'mon and work it on out.

You know you move real good, girl;
(Shake it up baby, now...)
You know you move real fine.
(Twist and shout...)
C'mon and move a little closer;
(Shake it up baby, now...)
Show the world that you're mine
(Now work it on out...)
You know you got me goin'
(You know you got me goin'...)
Like I knew you would
You really really got me goin', yeah,
Just like I knew you could.
(Like I knew you could...)

C抦on, baby, (c抦on baby)
Twist and shout (c抦on baby).
Shake it up baby;
(C抦on and) work it on out.

You know you move real good;
You know you move real fine.
C抦on and move a little closer, girl;
And let 'em know you're mine
You know you got me goin? Girl,
Like I knew you would.
You really got me goin? Yeah,
Like I knew you could---
Like I knew you would.
Shake it up, baby;
Shake it, baby, c'mon
Move a little closer...
