"Shake the Boogie" as written by and John Lee Williamson....
Now, an my baby went out
An' stayed out all night long
She never came home
Until the break of dawn

C'mon, shake yo' boogie
Whoa, shake a-yo' boogie
C'mon, shake a-yo' boogie
Because your boogie's alright wit' me, yeah

I'm goin' to buy me a dog
On a wired nose
I even kill a man
About my jellyroll

But c'mon, shake a-yo' boogie
Oh, shake a-yo' boogie
C'mon an shake a-yo' boogie
Because yo' boogie's is alright wit' me

"Alright, John"

Oh, but look-a-here, baby
See what-a you've done, done
You taken my money
You got me on a bum

C'mon shake a-yo' boogie
Whoa, shake a-yo' boogie
C'mon an shake a-yo' boogie
Because yo' boogie alright wit' me

You know, me an my baby
Don't do nothin' but fuss an fight
I said, 'Look-a-here, baby
Things ain't goin' on right'

But c'mon, shake yo' boogie
Oh, shake a-yo' boogie
C'mon an shake a-yo' boogie
You know, yo' boogie alright wit' me, now

"Ride! Take it away, Lacey"

I don't need no steam-heatin'
By my bed
The little girl I got
Keep me, cherry red

But c'mon shake a-yo' boogie
Whoa, shake a-yo' boogie
C'mon an shake a-yo' boogie
Because yo' boogie's alright wit' me

"Now John, I got it this time by myself"
