Shake Em Up Rock

T. Texas Tyler

(T. Texas Tyler, 4 STAR EP-35-C, 1958)

She's a pretty little gal and she got great big blue eyes
She's a pretty little gal and she got great big blue eyes
When she looks at me, I think I'm in paradise

Well, I walk about you, talk about you, shake 'em up again, oh-hi-ho
Well, I walk about you, talk about you, shake 'em up again, oh-hi-ho
Well, I walk about you, talk about you, shake 'em up again, oh-hi-ho rock

She dances like a cat, swingin' on a rusty gate
She dances like a cat, swingin' on a rusty gate
And she goes like a fire truck twenty-four hours late

Walk about, talk about, shake 'em up again, oh-hi-ho
Walk about, talk about, shake 'em up again, oh-hi-ho
Well, I walk about you, talk about you, shake 'em up again, oh-hi-ho rock

When I blow my whistle, baby start to tune your horn
When I blow my whistle, baby start to tune your horn
And then start shakin' like a jelly on a frosty morn

Well, I walk about you, talk about you, shake 'em up again, oh-hi-ho
Well, I walk about you, talk about you, shake 'em up again, oh-hi-ho
Well, I walk about you, talk about you, shake 'em up again, oh-hi-ho rock

Also recorded by Benny Cliff (DRIFT R 1441, 1958)

Heard on different cover versions:

Well, I walk about you, talk about you, shake 'em up Jimbo, howdy ya all
Well, I walk about you, talk about you, shake 'em up Jimbo, howdy ya all
Well, I walk about you, talk about you, shake 'em up Jimbo, howdy ya all
