Abbott, Gregory - Shake You Down Lyrics

Oh, yeah

Girl, I've been watching you
From so far across the floor now, baby
That's nothing new
I've watched you so many times before now, baby

I see that look in your eyes (look in your eyes)
And what it's telling me
And you know, oh girl, that I'm not shy
I'm glad you picked up on my telepathy, now baby

(You read my mind) you know you did
(Girl, I wanna shake you down) well, oh well
(I can give you all the loving you need) I'm gonna love you
(Come on, let me take you down) oh, baby
(We'll go all the way to heaven)

Oh, I've been missing you
And the way you make me feel inside
What can I do?
I can tell you've got your pride now, baby

(Oh) come to me, well oh well (won't you come to me)
Let me ease your mind, oh babe
I've got the remedy, huh, yes I do
Now give me just a little time

(You read my mind)
(Girl, I wanna shake you down) I wanna rock you down
(I can give you all the loving you need) I'm gonna love you
(Come on, let me take you down) well, oh well
(We'll go all the way to heaven)

Girl, I've been missing you
And you know, it's funny
Every time I get to feelin' this way
I wish I had you near me
I wanna reach out and touch you

I can't stop thinking of the things we do
The way you call me, baby, when I'm holding you
I shake and I shiver when I know your near
Then you whisper in my ear
Oh baby, well, oh well

(You read my mind) you know you did
(Girl, I wanna shake you down) oh, baby
(I can give you all the loving you need) aah (loving you'll need)
(Come on, let me take you down) well, oh well
(We'll go all the way to heaven)

Eenie, meenie, minie, moe (you read my mind)
Come on, girl, let's start the show (girl, I wanna shake you down)
Aah, yeah (I can give you all the loving you need)
Roses are red and violets are blue
I'm gonna rock this town for you (come on, let me take you down)
Hey, baby (we'll go all the way to heaven)

Come on, sugar, let me shake you down
I'm gonna take you down to the ground
I shake and I shiver when I know you're near
Come on, baby, whisper in my ear

Come on, sugar, let me shake you down
I'm gonna take you down to the ground
I shake and I shiver when I know you're near
Come on, baby, whisper in my ear

  32. AmericanGiant100

    Of all the numerous 1 hit wonders in pop music over the past 50 years, I am most surprised that Mr Abbott did not last any longer as a long standing star. He was and probably still a very handsome guy. Brilliant love song/slow jam. Sirius XM Radio brought me here. Beautiful ladies in the song without sexually exploiting them. Classic.

  33. Daniel Njoroge

  72. Predaking101

    *Get it daddy...Mr Gregory Abbott at his very best. Like fine wine measured in time, good music only gets better with it. This is the difference between REAL A.M.T...Artistry, Music, & Talent, vs the crude, noise making, auto-tune hacks that are being pushed today. If you're not feeling this, or agree etc...I really don't give a damn.~Psycho Crusher! Verdict: 80's Forever!!*


    *Oh & PS....Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't he remind you of Phillip Michael Thomas i.e. Tubbs from the classic Miami Vice tv show, lol.*
