Lyrics

For goodness sake
I got the hippy hippy shake
Whoa, I got the shake
Yeah, the hippy hippy shake

Ooh, I can't keep still
With this hippy hippy shake
I get my fill
With this hippy hippy shake
Yeah, it's in the bag
Ooh, the hippy hippy shake

Yeah, I said, you shake it to the left
You shake it to the right
You do the hippy shake shake with all of your might
And then you shake
Whoa, yeah, you shake
Yeah, this ain't no fake
Ooh, the hippy hippy shake

Yeah, I said, you shake it to the left
You shake it to the right
You do the hippy shake shake with all of your might
And then you shake
Whoa, yeah, you shake
Yeah, this ain't no fake
Ooh, the hippy hippy shake
Ooh, the hippy hippy shake
Ooh, the hippy hippy shake
