Shake it up Şekerim ("Shake it Up, Sweetheart") was the Turkish entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 in Helsinki performed by Kenan Doğulu.

Shekerim has a hip hop melody resembling that of Çakkıdı. An electric guitar bass line can be heard as an introduction. The song then blends in with Anatolianmusic with the indigenous bağlama instrument popular among Balkan and neighbours of Turkey including Armenia, Azerbaijan, Greece and Iran. The chorus then starts, whilst the song pauses at about the midpoint, traditional Turkish music similar to the Horon dancers is heard.

It qualified from the semifinal in 3rd place. In the grand final, it was performed 22nd on the night following Bulgaria and preceding Armenia. At the close of voting, it finished in 4th place with 163 points.

Lyrics

(Shake it, shake it)
(Shake it, shake it)

She smiled at me, said: “Would you like it sweet and low?”
“I know a place where we can take it nice and slow”
I know what you’re thinkin’: don’t stop, I need that sweet thing
Telling you now, this is real

Shake it up, şekerim, I know what you’re feelin’
Shake it up, şekerim, I got what you’re needin’
Shake it up, şekerim, tell me what you’re thinkin’
Shake it up, şekerim, you’re my only sweet thing

She said in a sexy lazy low key: “Can I make it right?”
You put your trust in me, I’ll take you through the night
Don’t keep me waiting, not sure you’re understanding
Just how much I crave for you

Shake it up, şekerim, I know what you’re feelin’
Shake it up, şekerim, I got what you’re needin’
Shake it up, şekerim, tell me what you’re thinkin’
Shake it up, şekerim, you’re my only sweet thing

Lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey all the time
I got lots of candy to make you mine
Lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey all the time
I got lots of candy for you

Lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey all the time
I got lots of candy to make you mine
Lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey all the time
I got lots of candy for you

Shake it up, şekerim, I know what you’re feelin’
Shake it up, şekerim, I got what you’re needin’
Shake it up, şekerim, tell me what you’re thinkin’
Shake it up, şekerim, you’re my only sweet thing

Shake it up, şekerim (Shake it up, şekerim)
Shake it up, şekerim, you’re my only sweet thing
Shake it up, şekerim, tell me what you’re thinkin’
Shake it up, şekerim, you’re my only sweet thing

Shake it up, şekerim
