about

Bones is another word for dice. Originally dice were made from a specific bone in the knee area of sheep called the talus. Shake those bones = cast dice.

Shake those bones = dancing. No matter what Fate has in store for us we might as well take our chances and shake 'em and roll 'em while we can.

lyrics

____________________________________________

SHAKE THOSE BONES

Oh aye, this life is a mystery
What happens next is anyone's guess
It's a game of chance, luck and happenstance
Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose

Shake those bones, shake ‘em and roll ‘em
Shake those bones, shake ‘em and call
Shake those bones, shake ‘em and roll ‘em
Shake those bones, how will they fall?
