Shake it Like a Clock

lyrics

I've seen all the fortunate flayed
Waving on escalators mute and lame
Parading down as guilded guides
But really more like a parody

They washed out all the colors
They slipped in bed with their brothers
Obsessed, distressed but waiting calm
Adhering to the primal groove of the 808 drum

I know, I know, I know
The story's been uncovered
But they're so mean they put a hole in the silver screen

Been touched by absent fathers
Been tortured by their daughters
Been processed, perused, and stamped
With colleagues and foreigners kidnapped

The "Boy's Club" is officially closed
If you have any but's ill suck your toe
If you don't like it then here's the door
That leads to the next "Boy's Club" next door

I know, I know, I know
The story's been uncovered
But they're so obtuse they hung themselves with a licorice noose

You gotta shake it
Shake it like a clock
Shake it like a clock
A lot like a wristwatch

You gotta shake it
Shake it like a clock
Shake it like a clock
Like a glass bottle ketchup

You gotta shake it
Shake it like a clock
Shake it like a clock
A lot like a wrist watch

You gotta shake it
Shake it like a clock
Shake it like a clock
Like a Nascar pitstop

Shake it!
