Shake it up, baby


This song is very special for me since my childhood, and in the latest times, it keeps popping up once and again, so I decided it to be this week's Friday's song.


There's nothing like a cocktail
to make men's hunger start
To eat or to love
No better tisane has ever been invented

To make a well made cocktail
you have to put in a cup
a shredded piece of ice
and an amount of liquor
Afterwards you close the cup
and you take it with both hands
And the sweet time to start the work arrives

Shake it, shake it up, baby
Shake it, shake it up, baby
Don't rest even for a minute
If you shake it up for long
The mixture gets better
and you keep the costumer satisfied
Shake it, shake it up, baby

A maid has been hired
at some marquis' house
she knows how to cook
but she can't make cocktails
but the neighbours say the master is pleasant
and he joyfully teaches the girl as he says

Shake it, shake it up, baby
Shake it, shake it up, baby
Don't rest even for a minute
If you shake it up for long
The mixture gets better
and you keep the costumer satisfied
Shake it, shake it up, baby
