I'm Shakin'

Little Wille John

(Rudy Toombs, KING 5342, 1960)

When you touch my hand and talk sweet talk
I got a knockin' in my knees and a wobble in my walk
I'm tremblin', and I'm shakin'
And when you take me in your arms to talk romance
My heart starts doin' the Saint Vitus' dance
And I'm pantin', and I'm shakin'

Early in the mornin' time
Late in the middle of the night
Whenever this chill comes over me
I wanna hug you with all of my might
And I'm sweatin', and I'm shakin'

A chill and a fever so I been told
Makes your head spin around and your feet run cold
I got fever, and I'm shakin'
Feel like I been run through the mill
I can't move around and I can't stand still
I'm so jittery, and I'm shakin'

Samson was a mighty good man, strongest in his day
And then along came Delilah and clipped his wig
And it looks like it took me the same old way
So I'm nervous, and I'm shakin'

Well, the storm rocks the ship on the sea
The wind shakes the leaves on a tree
I'm like a nervous wreck, I'm all shook up
And that's what you are doin' to me
'Cause I'm jumpin', and I'm shakin'
And I'm jumpin', and I'm shakin'
Shakin', shakin', shakin', shakin'
Shakin', mm-mm-mm, I'm shakin'
Shakin', shakin', oh-oh-oh, shakin'
