[Intro - Eminem ]
Shady, Aftermath
There she goes shaking that ass on the floor
Bumpin and grindin that pole
The way she's grindin that pole
I think I'm losing control

[Verse 1 - Eminem]
Get buzzed, get drunk, get crunked, get f*cked up
Hit the strip club don't forget ones get your d*ck rubbed
Get f*cked, get sucked, get wasted, sh*t faceted
Pasted, blasted, puke drink up, get a new drink
Hit the bathroom sink, throw up
Wipe your shoe clean, got a routine
Knowing still got a few chunks on your shoestring
Showing I was dehydrated till the beat vibrated
I was revibed as soon as this B*tch gyrated
And hips and licked them lips and that was it
I had to get Nate Dogg here to sing some sh*t

[Verse 2 - Nate Dogg]
Two to the one from the one to the three
I like good pussy and I like good trees
Smoke so much weed you wouldn't believe
And I get more ass than a toilet seat
Three to the one from the one to the three
I met a bad b*tch last night in the D
Let me tell you how I made her leave with me
Conversation and Hennessey
I've been to the motherf*cking mountain top
Heard motherf*ckers talk, seen 'em drop
If I ain't got a weapon I'ma pick up a rock
And when I bust yo ass I'm gonna continue to rock
Get you ass of the wall with your two left feet
It's real easy just follow the beat
Don't let that fine girl pass you by
Look real close cause strobe lights lie

[Verse 3 - Nate Dogg]
We bout to have a party (turn the music up)
Let's get it started (Go head shake your butt)
I'm looking for a girl with a body and a sexy strut
Wanna get it poppin baby step right up
Some girls they act retarded
Some girls are bout it bout it
I'm looking for a girl that will do whatever the f*ck
I say everyday she be giving it up

[Chorus - Nate Dogg]
Shake that ass for me, shake that ass for me
Come on girl, shake that ass for me, shake that ass for me
Oh girl, shake that ass for me, shake that ass for me
Come on girl, shake that ass for me, shake that ass for me

[Verse 4 - Eminem]
I'm a menace, a dentist, an oral hygienist
Open your mouth for about four or five minutes
Take a little bit of this fluoride rinse
Swish but don't spit it, swallow and I'll finish
Yeah me and Nate d-o double g
Looking for a couple b*tches with some double d's
Pop a little champagne and a couple E's
Slip it in her bubbuly, we finna finna have a party

[Verse 5 - Nate Dogg]
Have a party (turn the music up)
Let's get it started (Go head shake your butt)
I'm looking for a girl I can f*ck in my hummer truck
Apple Bottom jeans and a big Ol' butt
Some girls they act retarded
Some girls are bout it bout it
I want a b*tch that sit at the crib with no panties on
Knows that she can but she won't say no
Now look at this lady all in front of me, sexy as can be
Tonight I want a slut, will you be mine?
I heard you was freaky from a friend of mine

[Bridge - Eminem]
Now I hope you don't get mad at me
But I told Nate you was a freak
He said he wants a slut, hope you don't mind
I told him how you like it from behind

[Chorus - Nate Dogg]
Shake that ass for me, shake that ass for me
C'mon girl, shake that ass for me, shake that ass for me
Oh girl, shake that ass for me, shake that ass for me
C'mon girl, shake that ass for me, shake that ass for me
We bout' to have a party (turn the music up)
Let's get it started (go ahead shake your butt)
I'm looking for a girl with a body and a sexy strut
Wanna get it poppin baby step right up
Some girls they act retarded
Some girls are bout it bout it
I'm looking for a girl that will do whatever the f*ck
I say everyday she be giving it up

[Outro - Eminem]
There she goes, shaking that ass on the floor
Bumpin and grindin that pole
The way she's grindin that pole
I think I'm losing control

God, come one

[Eminem makes noises]

I ain't leavin' without you b*tch
Coming home with me
And my boy, and his boy, and his boy, and his girl
Ha ha, Nate Dogg

[Deep breathing]

Song facts

"Shake That" is a song from Eminem's 2005 Curtain Call: The Hits greatest hits album. It is one of three new songs released on the album, and was the album's second and last single release, following "When I'm Gone."

The song features Nate Dogg in a prominent vocal role, marking his sixth Eminem collaboration, following "Bitch Please II" from The Marshall Mathers LP, "Till I Collapse" from The Eminem Show, and "Never Enough" from Encore, and the two collaborated on Xzibit's "My Name", from the album Man vs. Machine and Lloyd Banks' "Warrior Part 2" on the album The Hunger for More. "Shake That" is the first of these songs to include Nate Dogg during verse, whereas his contributions in the other works are limited to the refrain and the outro.

Contrary to many of the second singles from each of Eminem's albums (such as "The Way I Am", "Cleanin' Out My Closet", and "Like Toy Soldiers") which are usually much darker and more stern than their predecessors, "Shake That" is a departure from the serious tone of "When I'm Gone," representing a far more playful atmosphere. It focuses on Eminem and Nate Dogg rapping about seducing women into sex in cars, and strip clubs. The music video is animated, (Animation by Plates Animation of Toronto) and follows this context from the song.

The single was released in early 2006 in the US. It became a big hit, peaking at #6. In the UK, the song was released as a download only single in April 2006 and managed to peak at #28 on the download chart. Due to the fact there was no physical single release in the UK, the song could not chart in the overall official UK singles chart as chart regulations at that time stated that there must be a physical single release available for a song to chart.

"Shake That" was nominated for "Best Rap/Sung Collaboration" at the 49th Annual Grammy Awards, but it lost to Justin Timberlake and T.I.'s "My Love".

"Shake That" also has a remixed version with Eminem, Obie Trice and Bobby Creekwater on The Re-Up.
