Little low mama
Cheatin' brown
Done quit hollerin', gotta
Shake 'em on down

Now, must I holler
Oh, must I shake 'em on down
I done quit hollerin', babe
I believe I'll shake 'em on down

Look here, mama
Don't you see?
Shakin' that thing is 'bout-ta
Kill po' me

Now, must I holler
Oh, must I shake 'em on down
I done quit hollerin', babe
I believe I'll shake 'em on down

Get my nightshirt
Get yo' gown
Let's get together
Try to shake 'em on down

Now, must I holler
Yes, yes
Oh, must I shake 'em on down
I done quit hollerin'
Babe, I believe I'll shake 'em on down

(Shake 'em down now a little while)

(Yes, yes)

(Yes, yes)

(Yes, man)

(Yes, yes)

(Yeah, play a long time)

(You know you ain't playin' right
(Get that right, now)

(Get in there)

(Yes, yeah)

(Yeah)

(Yeah)

(Mmm-mmm-mmm)
(Mmm-mmm-mmm)
(Hmmm)

Mama goin' to town
Papa don't care
Give your chillun'
You know he's here

Oh, must I holler
Oh, must I shake 'em on down
I done quit hollerin', babe
I've got to shake 'em on down

My mama tol' me
Papa started to cry
'Son, cheat ev'ry man that have 'em
Women yo' side'

Oh, must I holler, now
Oh, must I shake 'em on down
I done quit hollerin', babe
I believe I'll shake 'em on down.
