Lyrics


Rosanna's daddy had a car she loved to drive

Stole the keys one night and took me for a ride

Turned up the music just as loud as it could go

Blew out the speakers in her daddy's radio


She was shakin' (oh oh ooh oh)

Snappin' her fingers (oh oh ooh oh)

She was movin' round and round (oh oh ooh oh)

That girl was shakin' (oh oh ooh oh)


We started drinkin', wasn't thinkin' too straight

She was doin' 80 and she slammed on the brakes

Got so high we had to pull to the side

We did some shakin til the middle of the night


Shakin' (oh oh ooh oh)

Snappin' her fingers (oh oh ooh oh)

She was up and down and round and round

Shakin' (oh oh ooh oh)

Shakin' (oh oh ooh oh) (oh oh ooh oh)

(Oh oh ooh oh) (oh oh ooh oh)


I got a little nervous

When she took her coat off

She looked so pretty

Ahh yeah


I'm always talkin' baby, talkin' too much

I love that little girl and I just can't get enough

It takes a lonely night with nowhere to go

Just call Rosanna, it's a hell of a show


And she's shakin' (oh oh ooh oh)

Snappin' her fingers (oh oh ooh oh)

She'll be movin' round and round (oh oh ooh oh)

Oh she's shakin' (oh oh ooh oh)


Shakin' (oh oh ooh oh)

Snappin' her fingers (oh oh ooh oh)

She'll be movin' up and down (oh oh oo oh)

Round and round and round (oh oh ooh oh)

And shakin' (oh oh ooh oh)


Sha sha sha sha sha she was shakin'

Sha sha sha sha sha she was shakin'

Sha sha sha sha sha she was shakin'

Sha sha sha sha sha she was shakin'
