Shake Your Waist
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


Ah gonna get a gallon ah liniment
To rub you down in the night
′Cause to keep me happy and content
Girl you have to be moving light
You got arthritis in your hip bone
You got rheumatism in your spine
When ah want to move like a cyclone
You be telling me "take meh time"

All you doing is eating and drinking
And you getting fat like a hog
(Doh come back in meh place
'Til you learn to shake your waist)
You′re bussing up all de bed spring
And you're heavier than a log
(Doh come back in meh place
'Til you learn to shake your waist)

Woman before I touch you you′re bawling
Ah got to choke you for you to stop
Ah believe is police you calling
And you want them to lock me up
Women you giving me too much trouble
You driving me out meh damn mind
Why you doh make yourself a little souple
Ah tired teaching you how to wine

All you doing is eating and drinking
And you getting fat like a hog
(Doh come back in meh place
′Til you learn to shake your waist)
Lawd, you are bussing up all de bed spring
And you're heavier than a log
(Doh come back in meh place
′Til you learn to shake your waist)

Oh, girl!

You is the stiffest woman that ever
Come to give me a little play
But you move and twist like quicksilver
When there's money to come your way
Give me back meh money you damn cheat
You have more tricks than little Bo Peep
Like a macajuel who just done eat
As you lay down you want to sleep

All you doing is eating and drinking
And you getting fat like a hog
(Doh come back in meh place
′Til you learn to shake your waist)
Lawd, you bussing up all de bed spring
And you're heavier than a log
(Doh come back in meh place
′Til you learn to shake your waist)

Ah-ha!

The other night ah jook you wid a needle
Ah throw ice water on your head
And still you ain't move a muscle
Ah say, maybe meh woman dead
Since you born you never perspire
It don't seem to me like your concern
But any time dis bed catch on fire
Ah gonna leave you there ′til you burn

All you doing is eating and drinking
And you getting fat like a hog
(Doh come back in meh place
′Til you learn to shake your waist)
Mama yo, you bussing up all de bed spring
And you're heavier than a log
(Doh come back in meh place
′Til you learn to shake your waist)

Ooooh!

(Doh come back in meh place
'Til you learn to shake your waist)
