You want us to think that you're just messing around, yeah
You play your life like it's a game of two hand touch
You think if you screw up that you will never live it down
And it won't matter if you suck if you don't take it serious

But when I really love you is when you're out there on the floor
And I can see it in your eyes that you just don't care anymore
Making a mistake is just a chance you gotta take
When you gotta shake-a-booty, shake-a-booty, shake shake

Shake-a-booty, yeah, yeah, shake-a-booty
Shake-a-booty, yeah, shake-a-booty, shake
Well, making a mistake is just a chance you gotta take
When you gotta shake-a-booty, shake-a-booty, shake-a-booty, shake
You gotta shake-a-booty, shake-a-booty, shake, shake

If you live your life the way you live it when you dance
You know the whole world will be at your feet
Nothing ever happens if you never take a chance
And as long as you live life like this, you'll never be complete

But when I really love you is when you're out there on the floor
And I can see it in your eyes that you just don't care anymore
Making a mistake is just a chance you gotta take
When you gotta shake-a-booty, shake-a-booty, shake-a-booty, shake
You gotta shake-a-booty, shake-a-booty, shake, shake

Shake-a-booty, yeah, yeah, shake-a-booty
Shake-a-booty, yeah, shake-a-booty, shake
Well, making a mistake is just a chance you gotta take
When you gotta shake-a-booty, shake-a-booty, shake-a-booty, shake
You gotta shake-a-booty, shake-a-booty, shake, shake

I can tell you want this life, and I can tell you want it bad
Can you tell me that this isn't the most fun you've ever had?
Everybody sucks, yeah, we all make mistakes
But no one can shake-a-booty like you shake it, shake, shake

Shake-a-booty, yeah, yeah, shake-a-booty
Shake-a-booty, yeah, shake-a-booty, shake
Well, making a mistake is just a chance you gotta take
When you gotta shake-a-booty, shake-a-booty, shake-a-booty, shake
You gotta shake-a-booty, shake-a-booty, shake, shake

Shake-a-booty, yeah, yeah, shake-a-booty
Shake-a-booty, yeah, shake-a-booty, shake
Well, making a mistake is just a chance you gotta take
When you gotta shake-a-booty, shake-a-booty, shake-a-booty
Yeah, you gotta shake-a-booty, shake-a-booty, shake, shake

    My InterpretationThis song is a deep and metaphorical techno ballad, beginning by explaining that a girl pretends not to care about what she does just in case she fails. But Hank expresses his love of her dancing, when she just lets go and takes the risk of putting it all on the dance floor.
    The song is also about shaking your booty.
