Give a Little Bit

This song is by Levon Helm and appears on the album Levon Helm (1982).

The lady's at the back door looking for the kid
Everybody's doin' all the things they always did
Bessy got a new hairdo, Judy got one too
Freddy's got a hottie toddie like everybody do

Give a little bit, take a little bit
Give a little bit more (Give a little bit)
Give a little bit, take a little bit
Give a little bit more (Give a little bit)
Give a little bit, take a little bit
Give a little bit more (Give a little bit)
Find out what this shakin' is for

I ran into old Johnny, he was lockin' up a store
He walked down to the river and he swam it shore to shore
Show me that shot of Billy, boy, she sure likes to boast
But how does she get her legs up and what happened to her clothes

Give a little bit, take a little bit
Give a little bit more (Give a little bit)
Give a little bit, take a little bit
Give a little bit more (Give a little bit)
Give a little bit, take a little bit
Give a little bit more (Give a little bit)
Find out what this shakin' is for

Give me one more minute, give me one more dime
Shake it on down to Kansas City, I'll show you a real good time
The river's overflowing and the banks are all filled up
My pupils and my eyelids they ain't never really shut

Give a little bit, take a little bit
Give a little bit more (Give a little bit)
Give a little bit, take a little bit
Give a little bit more (Give a little bit)
Give a little bit, take a little bit
Give a little bit more (Give a little bit)
Find out what this shakin' is for

Yeah, honey
I'm gonna tell you what this shakin' is for
It's for you to shake it on down here with me
And you and me, we're gonna shake it one time for Jerry Lee
That's what this shakin' is for, baby
That's all it's good for
