Shake it, shake it, what's my line
Shake it, shake it, what's my line
I feel like a sail-boat
Adrift on the sea
It's a brand new day
So when you gonna phone me

Shake it, shake it, what's my line
I could take you to heaven
I could spin you to hell
But I'll take you to New York
It's the place that I know well

Shake it, shake it, what's my line
Sitting on a flagstone talking to a faceless girl
Shake it, shake it, what's my line
And I'm wondering what to say but my eyes do the talking so well

Duck and I sway, what's my line
Shoot at a full moon, what's my line
So what's my line, shake it, shake it baby
Shake it, shake it, ooh

'Cause love is the answer
Love's talking to me
I'd scream and I'll fight for you
You're better than money

Shake it, shake it, what's my line
We're the kind of people who can shake it if we're feeling blue
Shake it, shake it, what's my line
When I'm feeling disconnected, well I sure know what to do

Shake it, shake it, what's my line
Ah, shake it baby
Ah, shake it shake it
I duck and I sway, what's my line
I shoot at a full moon, what's my line
So what's my line, shake it shake it baby
Shake it, shake it
Shake it, shake it, what's my line
Shake it, baby
Shake, shake it
Shake it, shake it, what's my line
Shake it baby
Shake it, shake it
