Shakin' the Tree Lyrics

Moku la le, moku la lai
Moku la le, moku la lai
Moku la le, moku la lai
Moku la le, moku la lai

{Refrain}
Souma yergon, sou nou yergon, we are shaking the tree
Souma yergon, sou nou yergon, we are shaking the tree
Waiting your time, dreaming of a better life
Waiting your time, you're more than just a wife
Don't have to do what your mother has done, she has done
This is your life, this new life has begun
It's your day, Woman's day
It's your day, Woman's day
Turning the tide, you are on the incoming wave
Turning the tide, no you are nobody's slave
Find the Sisters and Brothers
Who can hear all the truth in what you say
They can support you when you're on your way
It's your day, Woman's day
It's your day, Woman's day

{Refrain}
Changing your ways, changing those surrounding you
Changing your ways, more than any man can do
Open your heart, show him the anger and pain so you heal
Maybe he's looking for his womanly side, let him feel
You have to be so strong
And you do nothing wrong
Nothing wrong at all
We're gonna to break it down
We have to shake it down
Shake it all around

{Refrain, ad lib to fade}
