lyrics

Don't you ever shake and shake and
Don't you shake your baby
Don't you ever shake and shake no
Don't you shake that babe

The baby is crying and you can't get relief
It's been such a spell that you're too tired to sleep
You'd probably sell your kingdom for a single night of peace
But don't you shake your baby

There's nothing on the internet that you haven't tried
The skin time and the swaddle and the stomach and the side
The shushing and the swinging and the sucking till you die
But don't you shake that babe

Don't you ever shake and shake and . . .

If you're feeling angry then you've got to get away
And sing a silly song out loud till everything's okay
And dance a silly dance around or go outside and play
But don't you shake your baby

You've got to shut the door and put in some plugs
It's probably best to limit any alcohol and drugs
So grab your closest partner and receive a decent hug
But don't you shake that babe

Don't you ever shake and shake and . . .

The President Series (aka The Reverse Pregnancy Series) is a Maxel Toft project that began in 1999.
Each album represents both a U.S. President and a week of human pregnancy from birth to conception.
Starting with 42 (aka Clinton, aka overdue baby) and continuing in reverse order, all recordings are implicitly named and numbered according to past U.S. Presidents and a week of gestation.
