~ S H A K I N ' S T R E E T ~ (Words and Music by Fred 'Sonic' Smith)
Little Orphan Annie and Sweet Sue too / They've been coming around / Gives 'em somethin' to do / Their mamas all warned 'em not to come to town / It got into their blood / Now they gonna get down / Shakin' street it's got that beat / shakin' street where all the kids meet / Shakin' street it's got that sound / Shakin' street say you gotta get down / Streetlight Sammy decided to make the trip / All the way from New Jersey / On his girlfriend's tip / He pulled into town and met Skinny Leg Pete / Said come here, boy I heard about the streets / I heard about the place where all the kids go / Now, I'm about to flip / I just gotta know about / Well the kids on shakin' street never give in / 'Cause all of their lives they've been livin' in sin / You know that they're bad / You know that they're mad / They take for the takin' / They shake for the shakin' / Shakin' Shakin' Shakin' / The folks keep complaining they find it so shockin' / All the kids wanna do is just keep on rockin' / They ain't got no time to think about stoppin' / They gotta get down and do a little stompin' / Now Sally Baker wants to shake her shaker / And Bobby C. says he's gonna take her to / Shakin' street . . .
