(The Queen of dance hall 
Representing you done know Michael 
They ready for shake their thing like a tambourine you know?
What you say?)
I'm ready Lady Saw
Uh uh
You're perfect just the way you are (I know), 
Just the way you are

Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
Like a tambourine
Come ma
Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
You're the one for me
Shake it, shake it, shake it
Come on ma
Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
You the dance hall queen

Shake it, shake it mama, you the one for me
I'm realizin' you the only one that's meant to be
And when I wake up in the morning all I wanna see
Is the sun that is shinin' on you next to me
You got a little broken nail, got a hair outta place
You got a little bit of extra middle right around the waist
With all of them things I never ever hesitate
'Cause the thing about you baby is the smile on your face
I'm blowin' kisses at you girl and I hope they didn't miss
The way you move your body made it hard for them to hit you
I wish you would come a little closer
Rub a little closer
Mama say, mama kosa saying

Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
Like a tambourine
Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
You're the one for me
Shake it, shake it, shake it
Come on ma
Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
You're the one for me
Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
And we run the scene
Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
You the one for me
Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
I like that
Come mama
Shake it, shake it, shake, 
You the dance hall Queen

I got love for you baby, never givin' it up
And I love the way you love me, never gettin' enough
I love the way you shake that little extra bit of butter
When I see you move your body, girl it makes my heart a flutter
When I see you dancin' on the living room floor, 
On the kitchen table better open up the door
Bring the party to the street 
Because the street will love it more
And if the people love the beat, 
Then the beat will love them more
With the music blastin', the people clappin', 
The speakers shakin', the kids'll take it
You're perfect, just the way you are
You're perfect just the way you are

Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
Like a tambourine
Shake it, shake it shake it, 
You're the one for me
Shake it, shake it, shake it
Come on ma
Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
You're the one for me
Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
And we run the scene
Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
You the one for me
Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
I like that
Come mama
Shake it, shake it, shake, 
You the dance hall Queen

Hey gyal them a bubble like a pot pon fire
Waist a move like it make out a wire
Firm and sturdy like a truck tire
When we shake it man bawl fire.
When Jamaican gyal dem a shake
We know say ity in da place
Slide pon de drum and romp on in de bass
Watchin' 'em make me wine out mi waist me say
We shake it like we got no bones
Shake it like we oh so stoned
When we shake it man gather round
That's how we get down.

Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
Like a tambourine
Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
You're the one for me
Shake it, shake it, shake it 
And we run the scene
Come on ma
Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
You're the one for me
Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
I like that
Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
You the one for me
Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
I'm the Dance hall Queen
Come mama
Shake it shake it, shake, 
You the dance hall Queen

Shake it on the beach girl, vamos a la playa
Hotter than the sun, you know you set this soul on fire
A bird in the sky, you make me feel like a flyer 
Higher, higher, higher, higher
I got love for you baby, like every single day
I got love for you baby, in every single way
I got love for you, in everything that I cook
It's not the way that you look, 
It's the way that you shook

Shake it, shake it, shake it, 
I like that
Shake it, shake it shake it, 
You're the one for me
Shake it, shake it, shake it 
Me the dance hall Queen
Come on ma
Shake it shake it, shake it, 
You're the one for me
Shake it shake it, shake 
Uh c'mon
Shake it shake it, shake it, 
You the one for me
Shake it shake it, shake it, 
Uh c'mon
You're the one for me
Shake it shake it, shake it, 
Uh c'mon
