The Lyrics

Hey do your triceps sag, feeling flabby and out of shape
And your biceps and chest, do not pass the trainer's test of the tape
Then buy a shake weight, order toll free, yeah
Won't believe how fast the results will be seen

Go buy the Shake Weight
It will jerk ya
Go buy the Shake Weight
Dynamic inertia
Go buy the Shake Weight
Put on your lifting gloves
Go buy the Shake Weight
Deep muscle burning love
Shaking the Shake Weight, Shake Weight

I'm a little surprised that my girl was such an easy sell
Hmmmm, says she breaks a sweat, it sure beats a normal dumbbell
Dumbbell like free weights? (Or) did she mean me? Yeah
In the bedroom for a workout is where I'll be

I tried the Shake Weight
Six minutes? Geez!
You know the Shake Weight
Lasted longer than me
I used the Shake Weight
Muscles feeling so fried
I used the Shake Weight
But I'm so satisfied
I love the Shake Weight, Shake Weight

Ah, go use the Shake Weight, one month for free
Got an intense workout with no batteries

I bought the Shake Weight
Now it's all mine
I bought the Shake Weight
Forearms ripped and defined
I bought the Shake Weight
Muscles getting so stacked
I bought the Shake Weight
All my friends say I'm whacked
I bought the Shake Weight, Shake Weight

Still shaking from the Earthquake Jeff? There's more shaking going on here than Michael J Fox.

(Ages Round 1, 2011) Good one, took me a while to realize what the Shake Weight was supposed to be, but quality work all-around. 5s.

Security code was QVD... did you buy the Shake Weight from QVC's inbred ghetto half-brother QVD? ;)

(Ages Round 1 '11) Having flabby arms must have come from eating hot dogs and other fast foods from the boardwalk. (j/k) Well, I would like to get a shake weight myself. This also makes a great commercial jingle for that product. Shake it up with 5's with your shake weight!

(AofA) No shake puns from me I'm afraid. Awesome use of the word "inertia"! Great job Jeff.

Ages...loved this, Jeff...imagining you and your buddies performing this, each of you using a shake weight as a microphone. Now, flex for me... ;)

As lame as the shake weight looks, my cousin has one and it actually gives yourself a workout. Nice work!

I still wouldn't buy one, but I'm a ball player, I really don't need it. Funny stuff here though.

(Ages3) Definitely an interesting parody, quite good, but it was missing a cerain..."oomph", shall we say. Still liked the parody, worth 5's, but it's not one of my faves of yours. Maybe I'm missing a joke or somethin', I dunno.
