Shake That Thing

Lyrics: Papa Charlie Jackson
Music: Papa Charlie Jackson

Played by Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions in 1964

Shake that thing (diddle-de-dum)
Shake that thing (diddle-de-dum)
Well there ain't nothing to it, mama, if you shake that thing
Not a thing

Well it ain't the Charleston, ain't the chicken wing
All you got to do is shakae that thing
Shake that thing (diddle-de-dum)
Shake that thing (diddle-de-dum)
Well there ain't nothing to it, mama, if you shake that thing
Not a thing

Well here I am, the General King
Got a hump on my back from shaking that thing
Shake that thing (diddle-de-dum)
Shake that thing (diddle-de-dum)
Well there ain't nothing to it, mama, if you shake that thing
Not a thing
