In 1955 an R& B artist by the name of Big Maybelle released this song under the productive eye of Quincy Jones. But Jerry Lee had been playing a rockabilly version in his act also and finally recorded a version in Feb 1957. This was the song that launched the career of Jerry Lee Lewis and became a #1 R&B hit, a #1 country hit and a #3 Billboard Top 100 and peaked at #8 in the UK.

Whole Lotta Shakin Lyrics

Come over baby whole lot of shakin' goin' on
Yes I said come over baby baby you can't go wrong
We ain't faken it - Whole lot of shakin' goin' on

Well I said come over baby - we got chickens in the barn
Well come on over baby - baby got the bull by the horn
We ain't faken it - Whole lot of shakin' goin' on

Well I said shake baby shake - I said shake baby shake
I said shake it baby shake it - I said shake baby shake
Come on over - Whole lot of shakin goin' on

Well I said come over baby - we got chicken in the barn who’s barn what barn my barn
Well come on over baby - baby got the bull by the horn
We ain't fake it - Whole lot of shakin' goin' on

Easy Now - Shake it Ahhhh... - Shake it babe - Yeah...
You can shake one time for me
Well I said come over baby - Whole lot of shakin' goin' on

Now lets get real low one time now - Shake baby shake
All you gotta do honey is kinda stand in one spot
Wiggle around just a little bit - Thats what you gotta do - Yeah
Oh babe whole lotta shakin' goin' on Now let's go one time...

Well I said shake baby shake - I said shake baby shake
I said shake it baby shake it - I said shake baby shake
Come on over - Whole lot of shakin goin' on
