  • Shake Me, Wake Me (When It's Over)


The Four Tops

All through this long and sleepless night
I hear my neighbors talking (She don't love him)
Saying that out of my life
Into another's arms you'll soon be walking

Somebody shake me, wake me when it's over
Somebody tell me that I'm dreamin'
And wake me when its over

They say our love ain't what it used to be
And everyone knows but me
I close my ears not wanting to hear
But the words are loud and clear
Through these walls so thin
I hear my neighbors when
They say "She don't love him, she don't love him"
They say my heart's in danger
Cause you're leaving me
For the love of a stranger


Girl you're what my heart desires
My whole world you inspire
I can't bear to be losing you
Cause I've loved you my whole life through

Restlessly I pace the floor
Listening to my neighbor's criticize
What a fool I am not to realize
You don't want me by your side

As the tears stream down my face
I can't believe I've been replaced
If I've ever ever dreamed before
Somebody tell me I'm dreaming now

I said shake me, wake me somebody when its over
Somebody tell me that I'm dreaming
And wake me when its over
C'mon wake me, shake me somebody
