LYRICS:
They say you’re tapping all the phones
They say you use too many drones
That’s what people say, Mm-mm
That’s what people say, Mm-mm

They say you gave the cartels guns
That terrorists ain’t on the run
That’s what people say
and they got groped at TSA

But I keep trying
Can’t stop won’t stop lying
It’s like we’re just denying
the reality saying it’s gonna be alright

Because the vets are gonna wait
and the hard drives gonna break
baby we’re just gonna shake
shake it off, shake it off

When things don’t go away
we’re gonna blame it on a tape
baby we’re just gonna shake
shake it off, shake it off

They say that nothing is secure
That you don’t know the cure
I assure you that ain’t right
this dude just came in with a knife

See we keep trying
Can’t stop won’t stop lying
It’s like we’re just denying
the reality saying it’s gonna be alright

Cuz the vets are gonna wait
and the hard drives gonna break
baby we’re just gonna shake
shake it off, shake it off

Your emails are getting saved
and your junk is on display
baby we’re just gonna shake
shake it off, shake it off

AP phone records we take
our opponents gonna pay
baby we’re just gonna shake
shake it off, shake it off

Laws we’re gonna break
concern we’re gonna fake
then it’s off to a fundraiser to
shake it off, shake it off
