Where ’round, know that I’m somewhere
Shake em on down, babe, oh god

What’s hollering, whats goin’ on, shake ’em on down
Me and my baby we was in the field
Heard that train as it left mo-bile.
I’m style-o

I’m so tired of hollering I told shake ’em on down

Me and my baby we’re gonna get somebody
Got back down, shove ’em down twice, yeah
What’s going on?

Yeah, best I’m hollerin’
Best I’m hollerin’, shake ’em on down

Shaking ’em on down
All night crazy
Shaking ’em on down, gonna tell ya
Somebodies lazy, what’s going on?
