Standby,
We interrupt this for a message from the father.
We’ve given many years of funk to you,
And y’all still don’t know what to do,
And if I should die and I’m gone tomorrow,
Funk will be in sorrow.
Who’s gonna take it to the next level?
Must be the chosen one, but not the devil.
So shake that thing, baby.

Shake, shake it, baby.
Shake, shake it.
Shake, shake it, baby.
Shake it by me.

Shake, shake it, baby.
Shake, shake.
Shake, shake it, baby.
Shake ya booty, shake ya booty.

Oh, you move that body,
Move that body the way you move.
Oh baby, yeah, yeah, yeah;
I’m so into you.
Oh, it’s the way you move,
The way you move.
Shake it baby, shake it baby.
All around the world, boys and girls,
Ease up, and join the fun.
I just want you to see the reality,
Teddy, dance for me. Yeah.

Shake, shake it, baby.
Shake, shake it.
Shake, shake it, baby.
Shake it by me.
Shake, shake it, baby.
