All Shook Up

A-well-a [C] bless my soul what’s wrong with me,

I’m itching like a man on a fuzzy tree

My friends say I’m acting queer as a bug.       I’m in love, UH! I’m all shook up!

Mm mm [F] mm,   Mm mm [G7] mm,     Oh-[C] woh yeah yeah!

[C] My hands are shakey and my knees are weak,

I can’t seem to stand on my own two feet

Who do you thank when you have such luck? I’m in love, UH! I’m all shook up!

Mm mm [F] mm,   Mm mm [G7] mm,     Oh-[C] woh yeah yeah!

CHORUS:

[F] Please don’t ask me what’s on my mind,

I’m a [C] little mixed up but I’m feeling fine.

When I’m [F] near that girl that I love best,

my [G7] heart beats so it scares me to death!

When she [C] touched my hand, what a chill I got,

her lips are like a volcano that’s hot!

I’m proud to say that she’s my buttercup.       I’m in love, UH! I’m all shook up!

Mm mm [F] mm,   Mm mm [G7] mm,     Oh-[C] woh yeah yeah!

CHORUS:

My [F] tongue gets tied when I try to speak,

my in-[C] sides shake like a leaf on a tree

There’s [F] only one cure for this body of mine,

That’s to [G7] have that girl that I love so fine!

When she [C] touched my hand, what a chill I got,

her lips are like a volcano that’s hot!

I’m proud to say that she’s my buttercup.     I’m in love, UH! I’m all shook up!

Mm mm [F] mm,   Mm mm [G7] mm,     Oh-[C] woh yeah yeah!

Mm mm [F] mm,   Mm mm [G7] mm,     Oh-[C] woh yeah yeah!

I’m all shook up!
