Shakin’ Street

[Composed by The MC5: Fred (Sonic) Smith, Wayne Kramer, Michael Davis, Dennis Thompson, Robert (Rob Tyner) Derminer (Warner-Tamerline/ASCAP)]

Little Orphan Annie and Sweet Sue too
They've been coming around, gives 'em somethin' to do
Their mamas all warned 'em not to come to town
It got into their blood, now they gonna get down

Shakin' street: it's got that beat
Shakin' street: where all the kids meet
Shakin' street: it's got that sound
Shakin' street: say you gotta get down

Streetlight Sam decided to make the trip
All the way from New Jersey
On his girlfriend's tips
He pulled into town and met Skinny Leg Pete
Said, Come here, boy I heard about the street
I heard about the place where all the kids go
Now, I'm about to flip, I just gotta know about

Shakin' street it's got that beat
Shakin' street where all the kids meet
Shakin' street it's got that sound
Shakin' street say you gotta get down

Well the kids on Shakin' Street never give in
'Cause all of their lives they've been livin' in sin
They know that they're bad, you know that they're mad
They take for the takin' and they shake for the shakin'

The folks keep complaining, they find it so shockin'
All the kids wanna do is just keep on rockin'
They ain't got no time to think about stoppin'
They gotta get down and do a little stompin'
Well Sally Baker wants to shake her shaker
And Bobby C. (Sayler) says he's gonna take her to

Shakin' street: it's got that beat
Shakin' street: where all the kids meet
Shakin' street: it's got that sound
Shakin' street: you gotta get down


Shakin' street: it's got that beat
Shakin' street: where all the kids meet
Shakin' street: it's got that sound
Shakin' street: you gotta get down
