The Lyrics

If Yankees First Baseman Tino Martinez were to pick up a tambourine and this song was playing, THIS is what he would be dancing to.
Shake, shake, shake Martinez. Shake that tambourine!
Shake, shake, shake Martinez. Shake it for your team!

Work, work, work Martinez. Work that tambourine!
Work, work, work Martinez. Work it for your team!

Torre's sent out a Yankee to entertain all the cranky.
It isn't Alex Rodriguez, but the fine first baseman Tino Martinez.

Jump in the line! Rock it for us in time!
Tino, we believe you!
Jump in the line! Rock it for us in time!
Tino, we believe you!
Jump in the line! Rock it for us in time!
Tino, we believe you!
Jump in the line! Rock it for us in time!

Shake, shake, shake Martinez. Shake that tambourine!
Shake, shake, shake Martinez. Shake it for your team!

Work, work, work Martinez. Work that tambourine!
Work, work, work Martinez. Work it for your team!

Tino's dancing the cha-cha, tango, samba, and rumba,
But when his heart is on fire, he'll stop and fuel our hearts with desire.

Jump in the line! Rock it for us in time!
Tino, we believe you!
Jump in the line! Rock it for us in time!
Rock it for us baby!
Jump in the line! Rock it for us in time!
Don't try to stop him!
Jump in the line! Rock it for us in time!

Shake, shake, shake Martinez. Shake that tambourine!
Shake, shake, shake Martinez. Shake it for your team!

Work, work, work Martinez. Work that tambourine!
Work, work, work Martinez. Work it for your team!

Tino, you're a sensation, the reason for admiration.
And fellas you're out of fashion
"Cuz he's ready to feel the heat of our passion.

Jump in the line! Rock it for us in time!
Tino, we believe you!
Jump in the line! Rock it for us in time!
Hoist your hat a little higher!
Jump in the line! Rock it for us in time!
To the stars!
Jump in the line! Rock it for us in time!

Faster!

Shake, shake, shake Martinez. Shake that tambourine!
Work, work, work Martinez. Work it for your team!

Dance, dance, dance Martinez. Dance for all your team!
Work, work, work Martinez. Work it for your team!

Now Tino's dancing calypso. Left to right is the tempo.
But when he feels a sensation, he'll move with his tambourine in slow motion.

Jump in the line! Rock it for us in time!
Tino, we believe you!
Jump in the line! Rock it for us in time!
Come on Tino baby!
Jump in the line! Rock it for us in time!
Tino, we love you baby!
Jump in the line! Rock it for us in time!

Shake, shake, shake Martinez. Shake that tambourine!
Shake, shake, shake Martinez. Shake it for your team!
Stop, stop, stop Martinez!
If you want to use these lyrics AT LEAST give me credit.
