LyricsEdit

[Verse 1]
Uh, lately everybody's so self-conscious
People talk about each other so heartless
But I don't wanna hear those conversations
I just wanna feel the good vibrations
Whatever happened to the simple pleasures
It's hard to live when there's so much pressure
But I don't wanna think about the ending
'Cause every moment is a new beginning

[Pre-chorus]
Ohhhhh ohhh
You know life's too short to be complicated
Ohhhhh ohhh
Sometimes, sometimes, sometimes you gotta

[Chorus]
Shake, shake what your momma gave you
Put out your Michael J. moves
And dance with the record on
Sometimes you gotta get down, down at the supermarket
Even if there's people watchin'
Just because you like the song

[Post-chorus]
Sometimes, you gotta just shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
Sometimes, you gotta just shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake

[Verse 2]
Yeah, do we really even know what matters
When we're stuck inside the same old patterns
You know it's easy to forget that feelin'
When the kid in your heart stops dreamin'
It doesn't matter if you're 6 or 60
It doesn't matter if you're rich or thrifty
If the moment feels right just do it
Who cares if you're looking foolish

[Pre-chorus]
Ohhhhh ohhh
You know life's too short to be complicated
Ohhhhh ohhh
Sometimes, sometimes, sometimes you gotta

[Chorus]
Shake, shake what your momma gave you
Pull out your Michael J. moves
And dance with the record on
Sometimes, you gotta get down, down at the supermarket
Even if there's people watchin'
Just because you like the song

[Post-chorus]
Sometimes, you gotta just shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
Sometimes, you gotta just shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake

[Bridge]
Ohhhhh ohhhhh
Tell me, is it wrong if it makes you feel right
You'll never know if you don't even try
Let it go, you might find that you like to

[Chorus]
Shake, shake what your momma gave you
Pull out your Michael J. moves
And dance with the record on
Sometimes, you gotta get down, down at the supermarket
Even if there's people watchin'
Just because you like the song
Sometimes you gotta just
Shake, shake what your momma gave you
Pull out your Michael J. moves
And dance with the record on
Sometimes, you gotta get down, down at the supermarket
Even if there's people watchin' (hey)
Just because you like the song (just because you like the song)

[Outro]
Sometimes, you gotta just shake, shake a little, shake a little now (shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake)
Shake a little, shake a little now (shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake)
(Sometimes you gotta shake)
Shake a little, shake a little now (shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake)
Woooaaah
Shake a little, shake a little now (shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake)
Sometimes, you gotta just shake
