PICK EM UP AND SHAKE EM UP
(McCullough)
CECIL MCCULLOUGH (MANCO 1011, 1961)

Well, it looks like all of them cats have come down
Because we got the biggest dice scheme in town
We don't care about them cats names
And they got the money to get in this game
Wearin' a zuit suit or coverall
They got the green, just let it ball

And we'll pick 'em up and shake 'em up and let 'em roll
We're gonna pick 'em up and shake 'em up and let 'em roll
We're gonna pick 'em up and shake 'em up and let 'em roll
We're gonna roll, we're gonna roll, all night long
We're gonna roll them bones

Well, I heard a knock upon my door
It didn't bother me, I heard knocks before
So I went to the door and to my surprise
Two big policemen looked me right in the eye
I said, officer is there anything wrong
He siad, I wanna know what's a-going on

I said, we'll pick 'em up and shake 'em up and let 'em roll
We're gonna pick 'em up and shake 'em up and let 'em roll
We're gonna pick 'em up and shake 'em up and let 'em roll
We're gonna roll, we're gonna roll, all night long
We're gonna roll them bones

Well, they picked us up and they shook us down
First thing I knew, we was headed down town
Had the most fun I ever had in my life
Went down on my knees and that judge shootin' dice
I broke the judge and every cop in jail
First time a judge ever went my bail

We'll pick 'em up and shake 'em up and let 'em roll
We're gonna pick 'em up and shake 'em up and let 'em roll
We're gonna pick 'em up and shake 'em up and let 'em roll
We're gonna roll, we're gonna roll, all night long
We're gonna roll them bones
