(boogie intro)

Now, an my baby went out
An' stayed out all night long
She never came home
Until the break of dawn

C'mon, shake yo' boogie
Whoa, shake a-yo' boogie
C'mon, shake a-yo' boogie
Because your boogie's alright wit' me, yeah

I'm goin' to buy me a dog
On a wired nose
I even kill a man
About my jellyroll

But c'mon, shake a-yo' boogie
Oh, shake a-yo' boogie
C'mon an shake a-yo' boogie
Because yo' boogie's is alright wit' me

'Alright, John'

(harmonica & instrumental)

Oh, but look-a-here, baby
See what-a you've done, done
You taken my money
You got me on a bum

C'mon shake a-yo' boogie
Whoa, shake a-yo' boogie
C'mon an shake a-yo' boogie
Because yo' boogie alright wit' me

You know, me an my baby
Don't do nothin' but fuss an fight
I said, 'Look-a-here, baby
Things ain't goin' on right'

But c'mon, shake yo' boogie
Oh, shake a-yo' boogie
C'mon an shake a-yo' boogie
You know, yo' boogie alright wit' me, now

'Ride! Take it away, Lacey'

(harmonica & instrumental)

I don't need no steam-heatin'
By my bed
The little girl I got
Keep me, cherry red

But c'mon shake a-yo' boogie
Whoa, shake a-yo' boogie
C'mon an shake a-yo' boogie
Because yo' boogie's alright wit' me

'Now John, I got it this time by myself'

(harmonica & instrumental to end - but not John)
