Get out from that kitchen,
And rattle those pots and pans,
Well, roll my breakfast,
'Cause I'm a hungry man.

I said, shake, rattle, and roll,
Well, you'll never do nothing,
To save your doggone soul.

Wearing those dresses,
Your hair done up so nice,
You look so warm,
But your heart is cold as ice.

I'm like a one-eyed cat,
Peeping in a sea food store,
I can look at you,
'Til you don't love me no more.

I believe you're doing me wrong,
And now I know,
The more I work,
The faster my money goes.

I said, shake, rattle, and roll,
Well, you'll never do nothing,
To save your doggone soul.

    General CommentThis relative Beatles obscurity can be found on the truly truly appalling Ain't She Sweet collection.

    General CommentI believe this was originally done by Big Joe Turner in 1954. It was covered by Elvis, and Bill Haley and His Comets.
