Shake That Thing

Ethel Waters

Down in Georgia, got a dance that's new
Ain't nothin' to it, it's easy to do
Called, "Shake that thing", oh, shake that thing
I'm gettin' sick and tired of telling you to shake that thing

Now, the old folks start doin' it, the young folks, too
But the old folks learn the young ones what to do
About shakin' that thing, ah, shake that thing
I'm gettin' sick and tired of tellin' you to shake that thing

Now, Grandpapa Johnson grabbed Sister Kate
He shook her like you shake jelly on a plate
How he shook that thing, oh, he shook that thing
I'm gettin' sick and tired of telling you to shake that thing

Why, there's old Uncle Jack, the jellyroll king
He's got a hump in his back from shakin' that thing
Yet, he still shakes that thing, for an old man, how he can shake that thing
And he never gets tired of tellin' young folks how did he shake that thing

Now, it ain't no Charleston, ain't no pigeon wing
Nobody has to give you no lessons, to shake that thing
When everybody can shake that thing, oh, I mean, shake that thing
I'm gettin' tired of telling you, how to shake that thing

Ooh, ooh, with this kind of music, who wouldn't shake that thing?
