Modern Poetry Edition #16, (A Ring A Ling A Ling - Shakin'...)


I guess those late votes for Eddie Money are not going to roll in, so it was
a tight one, but AC/DC edges out Zeppelin for the MPulitzer. Nice work,
Angus, Malcolm, Bryan, and the other guy.

No love at all for Otis and Elvis!? Hey aren't some of you voters in
Memphis?

Eddie came with a respectable 3 votes -- If you didn't read about Rosanna's
Daddy's Car, you dismissed him prematurely. It's great.

Next week -- maybe some more shakin' in edition #17.

Shake! 
[Everybody say it!] Shake!
[Early in the morning] Shake!
[Late in the evening] Shake!
[In the midnight hour] Shake!
[When the time's going bad, now] Shake!
Shake with the FEELING!
Shake with the FEELING!

Listen while I'm talkin' to you now
Tell you what I'm gonna do now
There's a new thing going around now 
I'll tell what to put down now 

You move your body all around
And just shake
Thats the way you do it Shake, Shake, Shake it baby 
Shake it like a bowl of soup 
Let your body loop de loop 
Put your hands on your hip 
Come on and let your backbone slip 
Move your body like your hip
And just shake! 

Shake early in the morning
Shake early in the evening

A Ring-A-Ling-a-Ling
Honey, Shakin' is the greatest thing
But if you really roll Gotta do the thing with SOUL! 

Shake shake with all your might now
If you do it, do it right now
Put your hands on your hip,yeah 
Come on and let your backbone slip 
Move your body like your hip 
And just shake 

[God have mercy now!]
Early in the morning
Early in the evening All night long, y'all! 

If you really want to roll
Gotta do the thing with SOUL!
Shake shake with all your might 
If you do it, do it right 
Let your body loop de lite 
Shake!
Everybody say it, Shake! 
One more time, Shake! 
Everybody louder, Shake! 
One more time, now, say Shake! 
Everybody a bit louder, Shake! 


Shakin' - Eddie Money
===================================================================
Rosanna's daddy had a car she loved to drive 
Stole the keys one night and took me for a ride 
Turned up the music just as loud as it could go 
Blew out the speakers in her daddy's radio 

She was shakin' (oh oh ooo oh) 
Snappin' her fingers (oh oh ooo oh) 
She was movin' round and round (oh oh ooo oh) 
That girl was shakin' (oh oh ooo oh) 

We started drinkin' wasn't thinkin' too straight 
She was doin' 80 and she slammed on the brakes 
Got so high we had to pull to the side 
We did some shakin' 'til the middle of the night 

Shakin' (oh oh ooo oh) 
Snappin' her fingers (oh oh ooo oh) 
She was up and down and round and round 
Shakin' (oh oh ooo oh) 
Shakin' (oh oh ooo oh) (oh oh ooo oh) 
(oh oh ooo oh) (oh oh ooo oh) 

I got a little nervous 
When she took her coat off 
She looked so pretty 
Ahh yeah 

I'm always talkin' baby talkin' too much 
I love that little girl and I just can't get enough 
It takes a lonely night with nowhere to go 
Just call Rosanna, it's a hell of a show 

And she's shakin' (oh oh ooo oh) 
Snappin' her fingers (oh oh ooo oh) 
She'll be movin' round and round (oh oh ooo oh) 
Oh she's shakin' (oh oh ooo oh) 

Shakin' (oh oh ooo oh) 
Snappin' her fingers (oh oh ooo oh) 
She'll be movin' up and down (oh oh oo oh) 
Round and round and round (oh oh ooo oh) 
And shakin' (oh oh ooo oh) 

Sha sha sha sha sha she was shakin' 
Sha sha sha sha sha she was shakin' 
Sha sha sha sha sha she was shakin' 
Sha sha sha sha sha she was shakin' 


You Shook Me - Led Zeppelin
===================================================================
You know you shook me. You shook me all night long.
You know you shook me. You shook me all night long.
You shook me so hard baby. Baby, baby, please come home. 

I have a bird that whistles and I have birds that sing. 
I have a bird that whistles and I have birds that sing. 
I have a baby, won't do nothing ...oh, buy a diamond ring. 

I said you shook me, baby. You shook me all night long. 
I said you shook me, baby. You shook me all night long. 
You shook me so hard, baby. You shook me all night long.


ACDC - You Shook Me All Night Long
===================================================================
She was a fast machine, She kept her motor clean,
She was the best damn woman that I ever seen,

She had a-sightless eyes, Telling me no lies,
Knockin' me out with those American thighs,

Taking more than her share, Had me fighting for air,
She told me to come, but I was already there,

'Cos the walls start shaking, The earth was quaking,
My mind was achin', And we were makin' it and you...
Shook me all night long,
Yeah you, shook me all night long.

Running double time on that seduction line,
She's one of a kind, She's just mine all mine,

Well her claws, Are just another cause,
Made a meal out of me, and come back for more,

Tried to cool me down, To take another round,
Well I'm back in the ring to take another swing,

But the walls were shaking, The earth was quaking,
My mind was aching, And we were making it and you...
Shook me all night long,
Yeah you, shook me all night long,

Knocked me out, I said you Shook me all night long,
Had me shaking and you, Shook me all night long,
Had me shaking, Well you shook me...


All Shook Up - Elvis Presley
===================================================================
Well bless my soul what's wrong with me
I met you like a man on a lovers spree
Friends say I'm acting white as a bug
I'm in love, I'm all shook up

Well my hands are shaking and my knees are weak
I can't seem to stand on my own two feet
Who do you think would have such luck
I'm in love, I'm all shook up

Well please don't ask me what's on my mind
I am a little mixed up, but I feel fine
When I meet a girl that I have wished
My heart bears so, it scares me to death

When she touched my hand, what a chill I got
My lips are like a volcano that's hot
I'm proud to say that she's my buttercup
I'm in love, I'm all shook up

My tongue gets tied when I try to speak
My insides shake like a leaf on a tree
There's only one cure for this body of mine
That's to have that girl and her love so fine

When she touched my hand, what a chill I got
My lips are like a volcano that's hot
I'm proud to say that she's my buttercup
I'm in love, I'm all shook up
