SHE'S A SEX MACHINE
SHE KEEPS HER ENGINE HOT
HER MOTOR CLEAN
WAY SHE MOVES ACROSS THE FLOOR
THE WAY SHE SHAKES HER HIPS
AND LICKS HER LIPS
COME ON THERE GIRL, WONTYA SHAKE
THAT THING

DOING THE RATTLESNAKE SHAKE
SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE
RATTLESNAKE SHAKE
MAKE MY BODY ACHE
RATTLESNAKE SHAKE
SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE
RATTLESNAKE SHAKE
IT'S ALL I CAN TAKE

SHE'S GOT SASSY CLASS
BRING YOU TO YOUR KNEES
WHEN SHE SHAKES HER ASS
SHE'S A VOODOO, VOODOO CHILD
JUST ONE LOOK WILL DRIVE YOU WILD
SLIDES THROUGH THE NIGHT
WITH A VIPER'S SMILE
COME ON THERE GIRL, WONTYA SHAKE
THAT THING

DOING THE RATTLESNAKE SHAKE
SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE
RATTLESNAKE SHAKE
MAKE MY BODY ACHE
RATTLESNAKE SHAKE
SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE
RATTLESNAKE SHAKE
IT'S ALL I CAN TAKE

SEXY MOTION, JUST TAKE MY TIME
THE WAY SHE MOVES HER LIPS
UP AND DOWN MY SPINE
GOT THE RATTLE
SNAKE WANTS TO SPIT
CALL 9-7-6 AND LET MY HAND DO THE REST

DOING THE RATTLESNAKE SHAKE
SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE
RATTLESNAKE SHAKE
MAKE MY BODY ACHE
RATTLESNAKE SHAKE
SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE
RATTLESNAKE SHAKE
IT'S ALL I CAN TAKE

    Sorry, guy, this IS Motley Crue. Skid row also has a song called "Rattlesnake Shake," but if you'd read the lyrics, you'd know this isn't it.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it's about them wanting some babes to shake their asses? Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.

Midnight
Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.

Sunglasses at Night
Corey Hart
In the 1980s, sunglasses were a common fashion for people who wanted to adopt a "tough guy" persona (note all the cop shows from that era -- Simon & Simon, Miami Vice, etc. -- where the lead characters wore shades). So I think this song is about a guy who wears shades as a way of hiding his insecurity after learning that his girlfriend is cheating on him. He's trying to pretend that he's a "tough guy" to hide the fact that his girlfriend's affair is disturbing him.

Indigo
Of Mice & Men
This track is about is about questioning why the sky would choose to be blue if it had the choice to be anything else, “blue also meaning sad,” states frontman Aaron Pauley. “It's about comforting a loved one in a time of loss by telling them you feel blue, too.”
