The shake throws me out of bed, I’m looking for my baby

The shake fills my heart with dread, I know because

This is the one, the one was to come, oh no-no

For shaking, said be prepared – some cans and jugs of water

The shaking’s so hard, I’m scared

I feel it at 8-point 4-5-6-7-8

Better grab yourself there’s nothing else to take

Don’t smoke man please, the gas is hissing like a snake

In the subduction zone

Someday became today (shaking through)

The bridges collapsed, they say (shaking through)

Has anyone seen my baby?

The shake took the phones all down, I can’t find my baby

Real times have come to town

It’s different since 8-point 4-5, all the way to 9

Tsunami flood the river, bring the ocean up the line

Fires sack the city, make it pay for its crimes

In the seduction zone

Tomorrow’s not yesterday (shaking through)

The shake-shake-shake’s had its say (shaking through)

But did it take my baby?

I know I will find her safe and untorn

And we will grow old and remember the shake, the shake!

I’m looking for my baby

Has anyone seen my baby?
