Shake your brown feet, honey
Language: English 
Shake your brown feet, honey,
Shake your brown feet, chile,
Shake your brown feet, honey,
Shake 'em swift and wil' --
  Get way back, honey,
  Do that rockin' step.
  Slide on over, darling,
    Now! Come out
    With your left.
Shake your brown feet, honey,
Shake 'em, honey chile.

Sun's going down this evening --
Might never rise no mo'.
The sun's going down this very night --
Might never rise no mo' --
So dance with swift feet, honey,
  (The banjo's sobbing low)
Dance with swift feet, honey --
  Might never dance no mo'.

Shake your brown feet, Liza,
Shake 'em, Liza, chile,
Shake your brown feet, Liza,
  (The music's soft and wil')
Shake your brown feet, Liza,
  (The banjo's sobbing low)
The sun's going down this very night --
Might never rise no mo'.
