"Shake You Donkey Up" as written by and Andy Partridge....
Here he come again
Dress in all that skin
Like he was still human being

Look at he long ears
And he big brown eyes
And with them truth he is seeing

Isn't it a shame you kicked that girl
Isn't it a shame she kicked you back, jackass

She really shake you donkey up
She really make you donkey up
She really shake you donkey up, quite a packet

How she carry you
Over thick and thin ice
You still dug you spurs in
Now you forced to walk
Laden down with shame
It's not just you back that's hurting

Now children saddle him for riding
Pick a fight with love and she will
Tan your hide in

She really shake you donkey up
She really shake you donkey up

Shake you donkey!

    General Commentit's sort of interesting. The language has a sort of Jamaican patois thing to it, while the music is clearly hilbilly inspired.

    General CommentAlso, the donkey is clearly a feller who has recently become quite whipped.

    General CommentTo me, it's always seemed like one of the few XTC songs that give off a sexual, or at least sexy, vibe. The cryptic lyrics combined with the crack-hillbilly music sounds, to me, like a description of backwoods dominatrix. Could just be me, though. ;)
