Shake Your Brain

"You gotta shake your brains, figure it out
There's no need to scream or shout
You gotta work that thing you've got upstairs
You gotta activate what's under your hair"

This song playfully replaces frustration with creativity, resourcefulness and problem-solving.  It makes a great Brain Break song.

Themes: Frustration, conflict resolution, problem solving, creativity, resourcefulness

Shake Your Brain

You're headin' outside with your friends to play
When your Mamma says, "Take your little brother today"
"But the big kids are fast, and the little kids are slow
What game can we play together?
I don't know"
You gotta shake your brains, figure it out
There's no need to scream or shout
You gotta work that thing you've got upstairs
You gotta activate what's under your hair
You gotta shake your brains
You gotta shake your brains
You gotta shbbbbbbbbbb your brains all day long

You wanna pretend that you're a star
Singing on a stage and playin' a guitar
So you don't have an instrument, its all in your head
But there's wood and there's glue and there's string in the shed
So shake your brains, figure it out
There's no need to scream or shout
You gotta work that thing you've got upstairs
You gotta activate what's under your hair
You gotta shake your brains
You gotta shake your brains
You gotta shbbbbbbbbbb your brains all day long
Shake it!

Now if it costs a dollar to go to the zoo
And you've got six dollars but there's seven of you
There's gotta be a way to earn the rest of the dough
You better think fast if you're all gonna go
You gotta shake your brains, figure it out
There's no need to scream or shout
You gotta work that thing you've got upstairs
You gotta activate what's under your hair
You gotta shake your brains
You gotta shake your brains
You gotta shbbbbbbbbbb your brains all day long
You gotta shake your brains
You gotta shake your brains
You gotta shbbbbbbbbbb your brains all day long
