They mean shake your arse, boobens, or weiner. Everything in blues is about sex.

if they are singing about driving they mean sex. also any references to movement, farming, food products, anything really ... all sexy sex.

Well, I reckon it's all about Saturday night, and they know they got to go to church in the morning. Neutral

I finally got the real answer from Charlie Patton.  It was just about pastries all along.    

"You can shake it, you can break it, you can hang it on the wall
Throw it out the window, run and catch it 'fore it roll
You can shake it, you can break it, you can hang it on the wall
...it out the window, catch it 'fore it falls
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall"
