"Shake It Off" is the sixth track from Taylor Swift's fifth studio album, 1989. It was announced as the first single from the album.

The song was written by Taylor Swift along with Max Martin and Shellback.

On August 18, 2014 the music video was uploaded to Taylor Swift's official YouTube channel. It is now available for digital download.

The music video features different types of dancing, and has Swift dressing up as Lady Gaga, Skrillex, Fergie and Gwen Stefani.

The songs lyrics are in response to Swift's haters. Swift said on her official Youtube channel that, "I've learned a pretty tough lesson that people can say whatever they want about us at any time, and we cannot control that. The only thing we can control is our reaction to that."

During a Rolling Stone interview Swift said "I've had every part of my life dissected — my choices, my actions, my words, my body, my style, my music. When you live your life under that kind of scrutiny, you can either let it break you, or you can get really good at dodging punches. And when one lands, you know how to deal with it. And I guess the way that I deal with it is to shake it off." [1]

LyricsEdit

[Verse 1]
I stay up too late, got nothing in my brain
That’s what people say, that’s what people say
I go on too many dates, but I can’t make them stay
At least that’s what people say, that’s what people say

[Pre-Chorus 1]
But I keep cruising, can’t stop, won’t stop moving
It’s like I got this music in my mind sayin' it’s gonna be alright

[Chorus]
Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off

[Verse 2]
I’ll never miss a beat, I’m lightning on my feet
And that’s what they don’t see, that’s what they don’t see
I’m dancing on my own, I’ll make the moves up as I go
And that’s what they don’t know, that’s what they don’t know

[Pre-Chorus 2]
But I keep cruising, can’t stop, won’t stop grooving
It’s like I got this music in my mind sayin' it’s gonna be alright

[Chorus]

[Refrain] (x4)
I, I shake it off, I shake it off
I, I shake it off, I shake it off

[Interlude]
Hey, hey, hey, just think while you’ve been getting down and out about the liars and dirty, dirty cheats in the world you could have been getting down to this sick beat

[Bridge]
My ex-man brought his new girlfriend
She’s like “oh my God”, but I’m just gonna shake it
And to the fella over there with the hella good hair
Won’t you come on over, baby, we can shake, shake, shake

[Chorus]

[Refrain] (x4)
