I will find a way
To get to you some day.
Oh, but I, babe, I'm so afraid I'll fall, yeah.
Now can't you hear me call?

Shake some action's what I need
To let me bust out at full speed.
I'm sure that's all you need
To make it all right.

It's taken me so long
To get where I belong
Oh, but, oh, please don't send me back that way, yeah.
For I will make you pay.

Shake some action's what I need
To let me bust out at full speed.
I'm sure that's all you need
To make it all right.

If you don't dig what I say
Then I will go away.
And I won't come back this again. No.
'Cause I don't need a friend.

Shake some action's what I need
To let me bust out at full speed.
I'm sure that's all you need
To make it all right.

    General CommentDamn, 40-50 year old GREAT song, and not one comment...see, this is one example of how crappy radio has been since the 70s...it took me 49 years of life to finally hear Shake Some Action. Inexcusable. This song should have reached more people!!! Took way too long to discover bands like The Replacements too, where were you supposed to hear it? Damn shame... anyway, I’m happy to have heard it at all...life changing!
