Music & Lyrics by Mark Croft

People start to worry when the band starts to play
Because my girl picks a rhythm and gets carried away
They call themselves my friends and they call me to complain
That "It's your good reputation that she's gonna betray
She don't leave much to the imagination dancing that way”
But I'm not worried, no

They said "if she's gonna shake it like that,
Tell me boy are you gonna be alright?
They said "if she's gonna shake it like that,
Tell me boy are you gonna be alright?
I said "if she's gonna shake it like that,
I'm gonna shake it like this and we're gonna be fine (break)

Superstitious women start to spit on the street
And the looks they're shooting at her would make most women retreat
But she can't, and she won't, once she start moving her feet
Cause she's a sucker for a rhythm with a zydeco beat
Most times I feel like jumping in and getting indiscreet
Right by her side

They said "if she's gonna shake it like that,
Tell me boy are you gonna be alright?
They said "if she's gonna shake it like that,
Tell me boy are you gonna be alright?
I said "if she's gonna shake it like that,
I'm gonna shake it like this and we're gonna be fine

The preacher gets to thinking that the devil's at play
Because she can shake her hips in supernatural ways
That you've never seen but you gotta know she puts on quite a display
And that low cut Sunday dress gives all her secrets away
But I said, "Trying to stop her is like you're trying to stop a hurricane
It’s not gonna happen…

They said "if she's gonna shake it like that,
Tell me boy are you gonna be alright?
They said "if she's gonna shake it like that,
Tell me boy are you gonna be alright?
I said "if she's gonna shake it like that,
I'm gonna shake it like this and we're gonna be fine

They said "if she's gonna shake it like that,
Tell me boy are you gonna be alright?
They said "if she's gonna shake it like that,
Tell me boy are you gonna be alright?
I said "if she's gonna shake it like that,
I'm gonna shake it like this and we're gonna be fine
