as rab777hp said, it sounds like a dead battery - they don't last forever unfortunately.

there is a teardown for the iPod shuffle 2nd generation, here

unfortunately replacing the battery requires soldering, but if you can find a replacement battery and know how to solder, it should not be difficult to do it yourself

Sounds like a simple bad battery, unfortunately iFixit does not carry this part, you'll have to look elsewhere, such as here on amazon for the part. Doesn't look like iFixit has an installation guide either.
