SHAKE (ALYSIA KRAFT)

12TH AND CLAIRMONT
STEAM RISING LIKE SOULS OFF THE STREET
BENEATH THE SURFACE
BODIES PACK AND BLUR IN THE HEAT

CITY WOUND SO TIGHT
AND COILED LIKE A SNAKE
THE BAND STRIKES UP A CHORD
AND THAT ROOM STARTS TO SHAKE

OOOO, SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE
YEAH, SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE
OOOO, SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE

AND THAT POLICE CAR, PIN BALL
LINES UP AND LIGHTS UP THE STREET
AND MEGAPHONES RATTLE BONES
BUT I DON’T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND

I KEEP A POCKET OF RESISTANCE
I KEEP IT RIGHT HERE IN THESE JEANS
SAID, DON’T YOU WORRY BOUT ME NOW MAMA
I KNOW HOW TO SHAKE MYSELF, SHAKE MYSELF CLEAN

UP ON THE ROOF PUSHING EMBERS THAT LAND LIKE FIREFLIES
WHOLE BLOCK, WHOLE CITY, WHOLE COUNTRY ON FIRE
WHAT STARTS AS A TREMBLE, BECOMES A RUMBLE, THEN A SHAKE
WHAT STARTS AS A TREMBLE, BECOMES A RUMBLE, THEN A SHAKE

OOOO, SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE
YEAH, SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE
OOOO, SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE

AND THAT POLICE CAR, PIN BALL
LINES UP AND LIGHTS UP THE STREET
AND MEGAPHONES RATTLE BONES
BUT I DON’T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND

I KEEP A POCKET OF RESISTANCE
I KEEP IT RIGHT HERE IN THESE JEANS
SAID, DON’T YOU WORRY BOUT ME NOW MAMA
I KNOW HOW TO SHAKE MYSELF, SHAKE MYSELF CLEAN


I KNOW AND YOU KNOW THIS IS AS FAR AS IT GOES
I KNOW AND YOU KNOW THIS IS AS FAR AS IT GOES
I KNOW AND YOU KNOW THIS IS AS FAR AS IT GOES
I KNOW AND YOU KNOW THIS IS AS FAR AS IT GOES
I KNOW AND YOU KNOW THIS IS AS FAR AS IT GOES

I KEEP A POCKET OF RESISTANCE
I KEEP IT RIGHT HERE IN THESE JEANS
SAID, DON’T YOU WORRY BOUT ME NOW MAMA
I KNOW HOW TO SHAKE MYSELF, SHAKE MYSELF CLEAN
SHAKE MYSELF, SHAKE MYSELF, CLEAN
SHAKE MYSELF, SHAKE MYSELF CLEAN

about

The Patti Fiasco Fort Collins, Colorado

Jet-fueled by powerhouse front woman Alysia Kraft, The Patti Fiasco delivers a brash yet fiercely soulful brand of rock and roll with a heavy dose of rockabilly, blues, and ballad. At times raw and volatile, and at others, sweet and lilting, the band fuses a hard-rock swagger with the two-step of its Wyoming roots. ... more
