Lyrics

You Make Me Feel Like Dancing

Ooh ooh,

Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo, ooh ooh

Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo, ooh ooh.

Shimmie Shake.

Let's all do the Shimmie Shake.

Shaking all way down low,

Shaking all high.

[Chorus]

Shimmie, shimmie, shimmie, shimmie shimmie,

Shimmie, shimmie, shimmie, shimmie shimmie.

Hear the drum beat, hear the guitar,

When you dance this way, you do the Shimmie Shake.

Ooh ooh,

Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo, ooh ooh

Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo, ooh ooh

I can shake, I can do the Shimmie Shake.

I can shake way down low, I can shake high.

[Chorus]

Let's all shake (we can shake),

Let's all move our arms about (do the Shimmie shake).

Really move our arms around.

Shimmie shake shake.

[Chorus]

Twist and shake, let's all take a twisting break.

Really take a twisting break.

We're twisting wide!

[Chorus]

(Ooh ooh)

(Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo, ooh ooh) Repeats 8x while bottom part is sang.

Oh yeah the Shimmy Shimmy Shake.

Oh yeah the Shimmy Shake

Oooohhh, The Shimmy Shake.

Come on, let's all do the Shimmy,

Shimmy, shimmy, shimmy, shimmy, shimmy, shimmy, shimmy shake.

Oh yeah the Shimmy shimmy shake.

Come on and do the Shimmy Shake.

Dance Dance!

Shimmie Shake.

Let's all do the Shimmie Shake.

Shake it on way down low.

Shake it on high.

Shimmie, shimmie, shimmie, shimmie, shimmie, shimmie

Shimmie, shimmie, shimmie, shimmie, shimmie, shimmie.

Hear the drumbeat, hear the guitar.

When you dance this way, you do the Shimmie Shake

Twistin' break

Let's all take a twistin break.

Really take a twistin break.

We're twisting wide.

Shimmie, shimmie, shimmie, shimmie, shimmie, shimmie

Shimmie, shimmie, shimmie, shimmie, shimmie, shimmie.

Hear the drumbeat, hear the guitar.

When you dance this way, you do the Shimmie Shake!
