: : Does anyone know exactly what "shake my tree" means?

: If you don't want my peaches, don't shake my tree. That's the expression that I've heard. My understand of that phrase is -- if you don't want my opinion (or whatever) don't bother me.

Steve Miller Band, anybody:

The Joker

Verse

Some people call me the space cowboy, yeah
Some call me the gangster of love
Some people call me maurice
Cause I speak of the pomputis of love
People talk about me baby,say i'm doing you wrong,doing you wrong
Well don't you worry baby,don't worry cause
Cause i'm right here,right here,right here,right,right home

Chorus

cause i'm a picker,I'm a grinner
I'm a lover, i'm a sinner
I play my music in the sun

I'm a joker,i'm a smoker,i'm a midnight toker
I get my lovin' on the run

(post chorus)
oooooooo,ooooooo
Verse 2

You're the cutest thing that I ever did see
I really like your peaches, I wanna shake your tree
lovey dovey,lovey dovey,lovey dovey all the time
oooooo baby I sure show you a good time

Chorus

Cause i'm a picker,i'm a grinner
I'm a lover,i'm a sinner
I play my music in the sun

I'm a joker,i'm a smoker,I'm a midnight toker
I sure don't want to hurt no one

(this is sung right after the solo)
ooooooohhhhh,ooooooohhhh

Verse 3

People keep talking 'bout me baby

You're the cutest thing I ever did see
I really love your peaches,wanna shake your tree
lovey dovey,lovey dovey,lovey dovey all the time
