lyrics

While I stagnate
the world won't wait
for me to get on going

While I'm alone
my lamplit home
holds me, is my ruin

I gotta shake shake shake shake shake shake something up
like an earthquake outta Burbank or like dancing to the boogaloo
I gotta shake shake shake shake shake shake something up
like an earthquake outta Burbank or like dancing with a hula hoop

Well I have found
the world goes round
quick as lickety split

So whether you're dumb
or whether you're bummed
it's better to run than sit

I oughta pick pick pick pick pick pick something up
like a novel or a hobby or a kitty or a kettle drum
I oughta pick pick pick pick pick pick something up
like a rabbit or a habit or a bum or some chewing gum

I wish I was
I wish I were
done with all this wishy-washy wishin'

I'll knock it off
off my socks
like doing dirty dishes in the kitchen

I oughta make make make make make make something up
like some lipstick or some fiction or a biscuit that you butter up
I gotta make make make make make make something up
like a poem or a gnome who's home's beneath a buttercup

I gotta sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shake x4

about

Kitchen Hips Los Angeles, California

Kitchen Hips is the moniker of songwriter and folk musician, Aerienne Russell. Alongside her beau Evan Hemsley, Russell makes melodious music steeped in hominess, heartache, and nostalgic whimsy.

As a self-taught musician with deep family roots in Appalachia, her music speaks to a simpler time, like the songs of The Carter Family and Connie Converse with a pinch of Lee Hazelwood’s wry wit.
