Song title: Shake rattle and roll

(Clahoun) by Bill Haley and The Comets

Shake rattle and roll - Bruce lyrics

Get outta that bed and wash your face and hands
Get outta that bed, wash your face and hands
Get into that kitchen and make some noise with those pots and pans
But I believed to the soul you're the devil in nylon hose
Yeah, I believed to the soul you're the devil in nylon hose
Well, the harder I work, the faster my money goes

I said, shake, rattle and roll
Shake, rattle and roll
Shake, rattle and roll
Shake, rattle and roll
Well, you won't do right now to save your doggone soul

Well, you're wearin' those dresses where the sun comes shinin' through
Yeah, you're wearin' those dresses where the sun comes shinin' through
Well, baby, I can't believe all of that belongs to you

I said, shake, rattle and roll
Shake, rattle and roll
Shake, rattle and roll
Shake, rattle and roll
Oh, you won't do right now to save your goddamn soul

I said, shake, rattle and roll
Shake, rattle and roll
Shake, rattle and roll
Shake, rattle and roll
The harder I work, the faster my money go

Notes: As performed by Springsteen 9-Feb-1995


Shake rattle and roll - Original lyrics

Get out from that kitchen
and rattle those pots and pans,
Get out from that kitchen
and rattle those pots and pans.
Well, roll my breakfast,
'cause I'm a hungry man.

I said Shake rattle and roll,
I said Shake rattle and roll,
I said Shake rattle and roll,
I said Shake rattle and roll;
You never do nothin'
to save your doggone soul.

Wearin' those dresses,
your hair done up so right
Wearin' those dresses,
your hair done up so right;
You look so warm,
but your heart is cold as ice.

I said Shake rattle and roll ........

I'm like a one-eyed cat,
peepin' in a sea-food store,
I'm like a one-eyed cat,
peepin' in a sea-food store;
I can look at you,
till you don't love me no more

I believe you're doin' me wrong
and now I know,
I believe you're doin' me wrong
and now I know;
The more I work,
the faster my money goes.

I said Shake rattle and roll ....…
