Текст

When I done quit hollerin' baby, I believe I'll shake 'em on down
Get my babe, won't be late, You know by that I mean seconds late
Ah, must I holler, Must I shake 'em on down,
Well I've been mistreated, babe, I believe I'll shake 'em on down.
Well I ain't no monkey. I can't climb no tree,
No brown skin woman gonna make no monkey out of me,
I ain't no monkey, Sure can't climb no tree,
I been mistreated babe I believe I'll shake 'em on down,
Well I've been mistreated babe I believe I'll shake 'em on down.

Listen mama, Put on your mornin' gown'
Put in your nightshirt Mama we gonna shake 'em down
Must I holler? Must I shake 'em on down?

Gave my baby a twenty dollar bill, 
If that don't get her, Sure my shot, shot, shot-gun will,
Yeah, I gave my baby a twenty dollar bill,
If that don't get that woman, I'm sure my shot-gun will.
