Don't be feelin' down and lonely
Stand on your two feet.
Don't close your eyes and try to hide
From your reality.

Because at 25 and half a life
You never found you're groove.
You gotta get on the bus
You gotta shake it up
'Cause you got no time to lose.

You gotta shake it up
You gotta shake it up
Shake it up baby

Rock n' roll n' party girls
I'm up by 9 at night.
Alcohol and smoky bars
It's just my way of life.

Well I've never had much money
Have damn holes down to my knees.
Well I just duck my eyes and I reach to the skies
And it gives me what I need.

And I'll shake it up
You gotta shake it up
Shake it up baby

Well I know you think you got tomorrow
You say that time is on your side.
You find stones and dimes that you borrow
So you're a cattle child and mother never smiles.
Ha ha
Yeah yeah

Sha-shake it...

The kids in the rut they all say about how to run my life
They said settle down start growing up and find yourself a wife.
Well I raised my voice in anger I said 'what the hell do you think you know'
You gotta get on the bus, gotta shake it up.
Starve your breath go home?

You gotta shake it up
You gotta shake it up
Shake it up baby
...
