"Twist And Shout" as written by Bert Berns and Phil Medley....
Yo Salt your mic



Yo Pepa your mic



Yo Spin you hype



We're def you're right



The bass shakin' dancin' all night



Booties shakin' from left to right



Salt and Pepa rockin' the mic



So that you might







Shake it up baby now (Shake it up baby)



You gotta twist and shout (Twist and shout)



c'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon baby now (Come on baby)



Go ahead and work it on out (Work it on out)



Oooo, work it on out now, baby (Work it on out now)



You know you look so good (Look so good)



You really got me going now, boy (Got me going)



Just like I knew you would (Like I knew you would)







Oooo, hey baby, listen, I think they're playin' our song



What up? You gonna get up? Well shut up and come on



I want to feel your body close to me, lovin' and holdin' me



Tight like a vice grip squeezin' all over me



Yeah, that's the way, hey, don't get carried away



The other boy, do what the record say







And shake it up, baby, now (Shake it up, baby)



You make me twist and shout (Twist and shout)



c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, baby, now (Come on, baby)



Work it, work it on out (Work it on out)



Work that bootie on out now, baby, ha (Work it on out now)



You know you look so good (Look so good)



You really got me going now (Got me going)



Just like I knew you would (Like I knew you would)







Yeah, gimme gimme gimme all you got boyfriend, you should be enjoyin'



A sexy girl might ease that antedote to poison



Boys in the jam ask me to dance, but I say no chance



I want a man who's advanced in the art of dance



So when we get on a floor, he can take me on a tour



And we can do it till the fluid or sweat starts to pour



Down like the rain and the thunderstorm hard and strong



Boy, come on, don't wait too long







You better shake it up, baby, now (Shake it up, baby)



Twist and shout (Twist and shout)



c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, baby, now (Come on, baby)



Go ahead, and work it on out (Work it on out)



Yeah, work it on out now, boyfriend (Work it on out now)



You know you look so good (Look so good)



You really got me going now with that stuff (Got me going)



Like I knew you would (Like I knew you would)







Oooo, (Ah) get higher, baby



(Ah) Higher, baby



(Ah) Oooo, get higher, baby



(Ow) Yeah, now break it down







One good twist deserves a better one, a deffer one



We're Salt and Pepa, together we'll have lots of fun



Do it again, babe, for the hit parade



'cause Spinderella does a hell of a job keepin' the record playin'



Shout like ya just sold your soul to rock 'n roll



You lost control, go hit the floor







And shake it up, baby, now (Shake it up, baby)



Come on, twist and shout (Twist and shout)



Go 'head, go 'head, go 'head, go 'head, baby, now (Come on, baby)



Go ahead, and work it on out (Work it on out)



Oooo, work it on out now, baby (Work it on out now)



You know you look so good (Look so good)



You really got me going now, boy (Got me going)



Just like I knew you would (Like I knew you would)







Shake it up, baby, now (Shake it up, baby)



Shake it, shake it, shake it, baby, now (Shake it up, baby)



Come on, shake it up, baby, now (Shake it up, baby)



Sh-sh-sh-sh-shake it, baby, now (Shake it up, baby)



Shake it, shake it, shake it, baby, now (Shake it up, baby)



Shake, shake, shake, baby, now (Shake it up, baby)



Why don't you shake it up, baby, now? (Shake it up, baby)



Shake it, shake it, shake it, baby, now (Shake it up, baby)



(Ad lib / fade)
