Shake My Tree
Coverdale/Page Lyrics


Now I don´t want to be your slave
You´re trying to drive me to an early grave
All I ever hear, is that you live an´ breathe for me
But, all you ever do, babe, is shake my tree

´Cos you keep on pushing, baby
Like you never, ever been in love before

I told you once an´ I told you twice
I ain´t no schoolboy you can sacrifice
You want my love an´ you want it now
You try to love me, baby, but you don´t know how

So you keep on pushing, baby
Like you never, ever been in love before

I need love an´ I need time
An´ a little bit of both, if you want to be a friend of mine
I don´t want no woman, drive me outta my head
An´ you´re the kind of girl, guaranteed to wreck my bed

Love is what you need
But, you cut down to the bone an´ make me bleed
I give you everything an´ still you cry
Ooh, mama, the price of loving you is way too high

But, you keep on talking, baby, I´ve heard it all before
Now I don´t want you hanging around, or kicking at my door

But, you keep on pushing, mama
Like you never, ever been in love before

I know love an´ I know shame
An´ I ain´t gonna get caught up in your game
It took a little time to make me see
I ain´t lookin´ for a woman like you to shake my tree

So keep on talking, baby, keep on hangin´ around
Everything you do to me, is sure to drag me down

An´ you keep on pushing, mama
Like you never, ever been in love before

Shake my tree

I don´t want to be your slave
You´re trying to drive me to an early grave
You keep on talking, no matter what you say
I´ve had enough of your kind of love, to last me all my days

So keep on pushing baby, I´ve heard it all before
I don´t want you hanging around, or kicking at my door

Now I don´t want your loving, baby, I can´t take it anymore
I don´t want you hanging around, kicking at my door
If I see your face again, I´ll give you what´s in store
But, you´ll keep on pushing, baby
´Cos you´ve never, ever been in love before

(Sorry for such a late reply but YT nor Google informed me that anyone had responded heh.)

Thank you for the nice response. My parents did well with installing an eclectic taste and just a general love for all music in me from a young age. Im sure your kids will remember the stuff they grew up listening to thru you...I know for me and my friends, that had such a huge impact on us.

There were a few albums played a lot on my folks' stereo and those albums set me up with a damned good mind-set about music.
This album along with LOTS of Zeppelin. Physical Graffiti ended up being my favorite tho.
INXS's 'Kick'.
Joe Jacksons "Look Sharp!"
Radiohead - Pablo Honey
Depeche Mode - Violator
Snopp Dogg - Doggystyle (My Dad had a real LOVE for hip-hop and I adore him for it)
Stone Temple Pilots - Core

Just to name a few :D But yeah, about your kids...never be all, "Ohh, dont listen to this genre and I think you'll do well. Encourage them to like..listen to the people that influenced whom/what they listen now. That helps a lot in finding new music.

One of the most underrated álbuns of all time.

heavy duty reviews

Agreed!

Gina Bonelli

Bought it the moment I heard this song on the radio.

Guitar & Gaming 4 Life

I agree, also one of the most underrated riffs too

Norm Rosen

I agree that they are underrated.
But most commercial radio in all their stupidity, didn't give it much airplay.

Rodney Guerin

I agreee!!

A lot of people didn't get it when it came out but this was a damn good album !! wish they made a second together

Derek M

I was one of those people. I thought guitar hero shreddy shit was going to rule forevermore. Now that I'm older, I'm having a blast going through music like this to see what I missed.

Ozzy Singer

They are working together in 2021

Greg Muilwyk

The problem they had with a 2nd album was a rights issue and bad timing. The other thing was David coverdale came into some vocal issues but working in the music industry and having this conversation with David in person I can't confirm or deny but look for a surprise in 2023.(health pending)
