"You Shook Me" as written by and J.b. Lenoir Willie Dixon....
You know you shook me
You shook me all night long.
You know you shook me, baby
You shook me all night long.
You shook me so hard baby
Baby, baby, please come home.

I have a bird that whistles
And I have birds that sing.
I have a bird that whistles
And I have birds that sing.
I have a baby, won't do nothing oh!
Oh, oh, buy a diamond ring.

You know you shook me, baby
You shook me all night long.
I know you really, really, did baby.
I said you shook me, baby.
You shook me all night long.
You shook me so hard, baby.
You shook me all night long

    General CommentThis song is about the Hobbit. In it Smaug bemoans his deathly defeat at the hands of Bard the Bowman through the line "You shook me all night long".

    The bird is obviously one of the thrushes of the Lonely Mountain who could sing but could also "whistle", in a language understood by the Men of Dale. Thrush overheard Bilbo telling the dwarves about the bare patch in Smaug's "diamond-encrusted" underside. By "blowing the whistle", Thrush betrayed Smaug's weakness to the Bard hence enabling his victory. The descending slide guitar which accompanies the word "loooong" emphasises Smaugs fatal fall from the skies back the muddy waters from whence he came.

    General CommentHa ha, Mr. Skeetstan, your jest is of most excellent wit. Either that or you're a total fuckhead who deserves to be fucked and burned at the first opportunity.

    General Comment"I have a bird that whistles and I have birds that sing."

    This lyric is one of the best blues lyrics of all time. As far as I know, blues legend Robert Johnson wrote the line, but back then, musicians "borrowed" lyrics here and there. The Lemon Song stole from Robert Johnson some too. Anyhow Blues bassist/writer Willie Dixon wrote the song. Anyhow, it's about having two women, one that whistles - that's the one you got at home, and one that "sings" - that's the other woman, the one on the side!

    General CommentI love the dueling of Jimmy's guitar and Robert's voice. He hits a high A a full octave higher than high A.
