Hippy Hippy Shake! Song Lyric Sunday: Mersey Sound

This week the theme is to find songs with a Mersey Beat, or Mersey Sound or you could go with a band from Surrey. Join Jim and everyone else to learn more about this music. https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2022/12/17/i-am-not-british/

I found this video and thought it was good

This was a song that I DID know! I see it was done by the Beatles too, which is probably the version I have known. Not sure, but enjoy!

Hippy, Hippy Shake

Song by The Swinging Blue Jeans

For goodness sake
I got the hippy hippy shakes
Yeah, I’ve got the shakes
I got the hippy hippy shakes

Ooh, I can’t sit still
With the hippy hippy shakes
Yeah, I get my fill now
With the hippy hippy shakes
Yeah, it’s in the back
Ooh, the hippy hippy shake

Well, now you shake it to the left
You shake it to the right
You do the hippy shake shake
With all of your might
Oh baby
Yeah, come on and shake
Oh, it’s in the back
Ooh, the hippy hippy shake, wow

Well, now you shake it to the left
You shake it to the right
You do the hippy shake shake
With all of your might
Oh baby
Yeah, come on and shake
Oh, it’s in the back
Ooh, the hippy hippy shake
Ooh, the hippy hippy shake
Ooh, the hippy hippy shake

  1. Chan Romero said that he was inspired to write this song after listening to ‘Come On, Let’s Go’ by Ritchie Valens. This song is about dancing to the music in an uncontrollable manner, by jumping up and down and having a good time.
