Santana:
Regrets collect like old friends
Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way, I can see no way
And all of the ghouls come out to play

Tina:
Every demon wants his pound of flesh
But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues drawn
It's always darkest before the dawn

Mercedes:
And I've been a fool and I've been blind
I can never leave the past behind
I can see no way, I can see no way

Tina and Mercedes:
I'm always dragging that horse around
Our love is pastured such a mournful sound

Mercedes:
Tonight I'm gonna bury that horse in the ground

Santana:
So I like to keep my issues drawn
But it's always darkest before the dawn

Tina, Mercedes, and Santana:
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa

Tina with Mercedes:
And I am done with my graceless heart
So tonight I'm gonna cut it out and then restart

Santana with Mercedes:
'Cause I like to keep my issues drawn
It's always darkest before the dawn (Santana: Dawn!)

Tina and Mercedes:
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa

Tina, Mercedes, and Santana:
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa

Santana:
And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back

Mercedes:
And given half the chance would I take any of it back

Tina:
It's a fine romance but it's left me so undone

Tina, Mercedes, and Santana:
It's always darkest before the dawn
Ooooo...

Santana:
And I'm damned if I do and I'm damned if I don't

Santana and Tina:
So here's to drinks in the dark at the end of my rope

Santana:
And I'm ready to suffer and I'm ready to hope

Santana and Mercedes:
It's a shot in the dark aimed right at my throat, cause

Mercedes:
Looking for heaven,

Mercedes with Santana:
Found the devil in me
Looking for heaven,

Mercedes:
Found the devil in me
But what the hell

Mercedes with Santana and Tina:
I'm gonna let it happen to me, yeah

Tina and Santana (Mercedes):
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, (Ohhh) Oh whoa
(Oh) Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, (Shake it out) Oooh whoa
And it's hard to dance (When it's hard to dance) with a devil on your back

Mercedes with Tina and Santana:
So shake him off, Oh whoa

Tina and Santana (Mercedes):
(Shake it off)
Shake it out, shake it out, (Yeah) shake it out, shake it out, (Shake it out) ooh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out, (Shake it out) shake it out, shake it out, (ehhh) ooh whoa
And it's hard to dance (Hard to dance) with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh woah (Shake him off)
(Oh oh, whoa, oh oh)

Shake it out, shake it out, (Shake it out) shake it out, shake it out, (Shaaake) ooh whoa
(Eeh, yeah) Shake it out, shake it out, (Ehh) shake it out, shake it out, (Eh, eh eh) ooh whoa

Mercedes with Santana and Tina:
And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back

Tina and Santana (Mercedes):
So shake him off, oh whoa (Shake him off, oh woooah)

Trivia

  • This is the second time Tina and Mercedes have sung in a Florence + the Machine song, the first was Dog Days Are Over in Special Education.
  • Brittany and Sugar are included in the scene; however, they do not participate in the performance.
  • This is the second song that a part of New Directions sing to Beiste while she's in tears, being the first Stop! In the Name of Love/Free Your Mind. Curiously, that time were the New Directions boys who sang it, and this time are the girls.
  • Tina was the only girl there that wasn't in The Troubletones.

Errors

  • Brittany and Sugar mouth many different parts of the song but are not actually heard singing at any point in the song.
  • At the end, when Mercedes is doing runs, her mouth is moving off time.
