"Shake It" as written by and Terence Curtin Boylan....
Here she comes ridin'
Rollin' it down the line
Slipin' and slidin'
Takin' her sweet old time

And laughin' all the way to the parking lot
Knowin' in the back of her mind
She's gonna show the boy what she's really got
And stop him in the nick of time

[Chorus:]
Shake it baby, shake it all you can tonight
Go on and, and break 'em baby
Break 'em all you can tonight
'Cause it won't last forever
But do it for worse or for better
And give the boy somethin' to dream on later

Here she comes slidin'
Shakin' it down the hall
She's got a picture in her locker
An autographed basketball

She's got a purse that was made in Mexico (Mexico)
A mind that was made for love
She's got a new way of dancin' slow
She knows what you're thinkin' of

[Chorus]

It won't last forever
But do it for worse or for better
And give the boy somethin' to dream on later, and

[Chorus to Fade]

    I remember this song. It's from my Play Station 2 game, "The Warriors". This song is one of my favorites.

    General CommentGreat song back in the 70's. My mother remembers this song from the "Stealin' Home" lp.

    General CommentI think all the 'em's in the lyrics should be 'im's, short for "him," not "them."

    A very attractive young student is going to get into a car with a boy and tease him but "stop him in the nick of time." The singer suggests that she take things further because it won't last very long and it'll give him something to dream of later. Sounds more rapey nowadays than it did in the Seventies. The album was titled "Stealin' Home" which has overtones that are very rapey, but with deniable plausibility.

    This was later used in the movie "Little Darlings" which is squarely about teens' first sexual experiences, but the song was released two years before the movie.
