Cinderella - Shake Me - Meaning of the song
This was Cinderella's first single. It didn't chart, but it did get some radio play and helped established the band, who were discovered by Jon Bon Jovi.
The song is a straightforward rocker about sex. Cinderella had more success with their power ballads like "Nobody's Fool" and "Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)." Most of their songs, including this one and all their hits, were written by their lead singer Tom Keifer.
The video has a Cinderella theme: a girl with some evil sisters is working, and her sisters taunt her as they are going to the Cinderella concert and she isn't. When they leave, a guitar falls down from the girl's Cinderella poster, and then she is magically transported to the front row of the concert, while her sisters can't get in. The story continues in the video for "Nobody's Fool."
Shake Me - Lyrics
All right yea I met this girl around quarter to ten We made it once she said "make me again" She wrapped her love around me all night long In the mornin' we were still goin' strong Now let me tell ya it sure feels good First time I saw that girl I knew it would Now let me tell ya it sure felt right No pullin' teeth she didn't want to fight she said Shake me All night She said Shake me Shake it don't break it baby Shake me All night She said All night long All night long baby Screamed and scratched and rolled out of the bed I never really got her out of my head And now and then she makes those social calls Gives me a squeeze gets me kickin' the walls Now let me tell ya it still feels tight And we were shakin' after every bite I feel her comin' in the middle of the night screamin' higher Shake me All night She said Shake me Shake it don't break it baby Shake me All night She said Shake me ooo yea All night, keep the fire burnin' cause we're doin' all right All night, come on and shake it right Shake me Shake me Shake me Shake me Shake me All night She said Shake me Shake it don't break it baby Shake me All night She said Shake me ooo yea Shake me Shake me Shake me Shake me
