I gotta shake you off
Cause the loving ain't the same
And you keep on playing games
Like you know I'm here to stay
I gotta shake you off
Just like the Calgon commercial
I really gotta get up outta here
And go somewhere
I gotta shake you off
Gotta make that move
Find somebody who
Appreciates all the love I give
Boy I gotta shake you off gotta do what's best for me
Baby and that means I gotta
Shake you off

By the time you get this message
It's gonna be too late
So don't bother paging me
Cause I'll be on my way
See I grabbed all my diamonds and clothes
Just ask your momma she knows
You're gonna miss me baby
Hate to say "I told you so"
Well at first I didn't know
But now it's clear to me
You would cheat with all your freaks
And lie compulsively
So I packed up my Louis Vuitton
Jumped in your ride and took off
You'll never ever find a girl
Who loves you more than me

I gotta shake you off
Cause the loving ain't the same
And you keep on playing games
Like you know I'm here to stay
I gotta shake you off
Just like the Calgon commercial
I really gotta get up outta here
And go somewhere
I gotta shake you off
Gotta make that move
Find somebody who
Appreciates all the love I give
Boy I gotta shake you off
Gotta do what's best for me
Baby and that means I gotta
Shake you off

I gotta shake, shake,
Shake, shake, shake it
Off...

I found out about a gang
Of your dirty little deeds
With this one and that one
By the pool, on the beach, in the streets
Heard y'all was
Hold up my phone's breakin' up
I'ma hang up and
Call the machine right back
I gotta get this off of my mind
You wasn't worth my time
I'm leaving you behind
Cause I need a real love in my life
Save this recording because
I'm never coming back home
Baby I'm gone
Don't cha know

I gotta shake you off
Cause the loving ain't the same
And you keep on playing games
Like you know I'm here to stay
I gotta shake you off
Just like the Calgon commercial
I really gotta get up outta here
And go somewhere
I gotta shake you off
Gotta make that move
Find somebody who
Appreciates all the love I give
Boy I gotta shake you off
Gotta do what's best for me
Baby and that means I gotta
Shake you off

Jay-Z:
Ladies and gentlemen, it's Hov
Break up is imminent, I know
What's the sense of putting it off till tomorrow
Pretending it ain't gonna end, let's roll
Gotta move baby, know it's hella hard
You gotta find your groove baby
Like Stella, nah that ain't you baby
Gotta let her do what it do baby
Shed a tear or two but don't get too crazy baby
Why are you behaving like it ain't other fish in the fish bowl
For the disco shit let's go
The Emancipation of M.I.M.I.
I spray ramus ra ra
20 worldwide, nigga get your plaques
Guess who the fuck got his swagger back
Shake 'em off, uh, shake 'em off
G4s and all we take off
The flawless shit, I'm the boss
El presidente caliente
Call me the other don so we fuck raw
Yo, the boy is back along with the voice is back
MC shake 'em off
(Shake you off)

Mariah:
By the time you get this message
It's gonna be too late

Cause I'll be on my way
See I grabbed all my diamonds and clothes
Just ask your momma she knows
You're gonna miss me baby
Hate to say "I told you so"
Well at first I didn't know
But now it's clear to me
You would cheat with all your freaks
And lie compulsively
So I packed up my Louis Vuitton
Jumped in your ride and took off
You'll never ever find a girl
Who loves you more than me

I gotta shake you off
Cause the loving ain't the same
And you keep on playing games
Like you know I'm here to stay
I gotta shake you off
Just like the Calgon commercial
I really gotta get up outta here
And go somewhere
I gotta shake you off
Gotta make that move
Find somebody who
Appreciates all the love I give
Boy I gotta shake you off
Gotta do what's best for me
Baby and that means I gotta
Shake you off

I gotta shake, shake,
Shake, shake, shake it
Off...

Young Jeezy:
Make me imagine that
For real play girl like I'm having that
Bronze on my tip can't shake 'em off
Take 'em to the crib then I break 'em off
Mommy on my team 'cause she know that I'm a winner
Drink Cris out the bottle, eat Popeyes for dinner
Left the coupe at the crib, scooped her up in the Chevy
Got the top down and the bass beatin' heavy
See he, he spoils you, me, I ignore ya
Sh-shake ya off, don't answer your phone calls
You say I'm trippin' but me, I call it tough love
So tell your friends you in love with a straight thug
You either in or out, what's happening with ya honey
Young snowman chase nothing but some money
