Lyrics

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
(Everybody just, everybody just pounce, pounce)
Ah...
(Check it out)
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
(Everybody just, everybody just bounce,bounce)
Ah...

[chorus]
(I gotta shake it off)
'Cause i know it ain't the same, and you keep on playin' games
Like you know I'm here to stay
(I gotta shake, shake it off)
Just like A CALGON commercial like, cause gotta get up outta here
And go somewhere
(I gotta shake it off)
Could i make that move (Yeah),
find somebody who appreciates all the love I give
(and boy I gotta shake, shake it off)
Gotta do what's best for me (uh-huh)
Baby and if that means I gotta
(Shake you off)

By the time you get this message it's gonna be too late (uh-uh)
So don't bother pagin' me 'cause I'll be on my way (What you doin')
Packed up my diamonds and clothes,
Just ask your mama she knows
You're gonna miss me baby hate to say I told you so (Yeah)

Well at first I didn't know but now it's clear to me
You would cheat with all ya freaks and lie impulsively
So packed up my Louis Vitton,
Jump in my ride and took off
You'll never ever find a girl who loves you more than me

[chorus]
(I gotta shake it off)
'Cause i know it ain't the same, and you keep on playin' games
Like you know I'm here to stay
(I gotta shake, shake it off)
Just like A CALGON commercial like i gotta got get up outta here
And go somewhere
(I gotta shake it off)
if i make that move (uh-huh),
find somebody who appreciates all the love I give
(Boy I gotta shake, shake it off)
Gotta do what's best for me (Yeah)
Baby if that means I gotta
(Shake you off)

I gotta shake, shake, shake, shake,
Shake it off
Shake, shake, shake, shake,
Gotta shake it off (Gotta shake it off)
Shake, shake, shake, shake
Shake it off (Ooh...)
Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
Shake it off

I've found out about your ya dirty little deeds
With this one and that one by the pool on the beach
in the street heard ya'll was
Hold up, my phone's breakin' up I'mma hang up
and call the machine right back
I gotta get this off, of mind

You wasn't worth my time (Oh), so I'm leavin' you behind (Yeah...)
'Cause I need a real love in my life
Save this recording because, I'm never coming back home (uh-huh)
Baby I'm gone (Gone)
Don't you know...

[chorus]
(I gotta shake it off) (I gotta shake you off)
'Cause the lovin' ain't the same and you keep on playin'
games (playin games)
Like you know I'm here to stay (Ooooh)
(I gotta shake, shake it off) (Oooooh ooh)
Just like the Calgon commercial I really got get up outta here
And go somewhere
(I gotta shake it off) (I...)
Gotta make that move (Make that move),
find somebody who appreciates all the love I give
(Boy I gotta shake, shake it off)
Gotta do what's best for me (Oooh)
Baby and that means I gotta
(Shake you off)

I gotta shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
Shake it off (Ooh...)
Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
Gotta shake it off (Gotta shake it off)
Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
Shake it off (Ooh...)
Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
Shake it off

[chorus]
(I just gotta shake it off) (I just gotta you off!)
'Cause the lovin' ain't the same, and you keep on playin' games (Oh)
Like you know I'm here to stay
(I gotta shake, shake it off) (ooh I gotta ooh, eee...)
Just like the Calgon commercial I really got get up outta here
(I gotta go somewhere)
And go somewhere
(I gotta shake it off) (And make that move)
Gotta make that move, find somebody who (who)
appreciates all the love I give
(Boy I gotta shake, shake it off) (Boy I gotta shake it off)
Gotta do what's best for me (uh-huh)
Baby and that means I gotta
(Baby and that means I gotta shake you off)
(Shake you off)

I gotta shake it off

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
(Everybody just, everybody just pounce, pounce)
Ah...
(I gotta shake, shake it off)
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
(Everybody just, everybody just pounce, pounce)

    I miss the Mariah of Emancipation. E=MC2 was good, but not good enough. Bye Bye, I Stay In Love and I'll Be Lovin You Long Time are standouts but it wasn't enough!

    There were no classics like We Belong Together on her new album, sadly...

    Anyone agree?

    "Shake It Off" = one of MC's best songs and one of the best songs in "The Emancipation of Mimi" (2005). The song never gets too old.

    It has a catchy R&B rhythm and melody.
    Instruments maintain the catchy rhythm and melody.
    The lyrics are good and have a meaning, like in all other Mariah Carey songs.
    Some ppl think that this song has bad lyrics just because "Shake" was repeated 46 times in this song...to me, repetition of lyrics does not matter. Instead, it enhances the effect of this song.
    Mariah Carey's vocals are stellar in this song and in most of her other songs.

    Listening to "Shake It Off", "We Belong Together", "Bye Bye", and "Touch My Body" made me an MC fan.

    GJ, Mariah Carey!

    Really good. I love her voice.
    best part:
    I gotta shake you off
    Cause the loving ain't the same
    And you keep on playing games
    Like you know I'm here to stay
    I gotta shake it off

    this song has an uptown beat, but i had the album before the song was released and i kinda got sick of hearing 'shake it off' over and over again.

    but still, she got talent. thing is, i barely was able to hear it on the radio...

    Do you think that Mariah is a Beyonce wanna be???

    Mariah is the best in the world. Beyonce will never be just a little piece of Mariah. She will never be able to write songs and sing as Mimi does it.

    17 number ones and millions of records sold..

    The Emancipation of Mimi has sold 10 millions so far...isn't amazig?

    Shake it off is just great. What a pity it wasn't just number 2. However, only a Mimi single could be better in the billboard than Shake it off....We belong together!!!!

    The best comeback ever

    We love you Mariah!
