Lyrics

Shakedown

Written By: Michael Ryan

I should have known better
I should have seen it coming
From a long long away
The stars were lining up
The cards were on the table
They were ready to play

I had what you want
You can never get it
It's already passed you by
Now you want to take a little
Take a little you'll feel better
It's what you had in mind

I can feel a shakedown
Try to get me to breakdown
Got me bending like a willow tree
I can feel a shakedown
Got me all broke down
Got me bending at my knee

You are crazier than a novel
No one can write that book
The one you're throwing at me
Sitting around in your mess of a wasted life
Like on daytime drama TV

I should have known better
I should have seen it coming
From a long, long away
The stars were lining up
The cards were on the table
They were ready to play

I can feel a Shakedown
Try to get me to breakdown
Got me bending like a willow tree
I can feel the shakedown
Got me all broke down
Got me landing on my knee

O.K. boy this is how it works
you were looking like you were having a good time
I'm going to take a little of yours and make it mine
That's right your life is full and mine is empty
Give me one and I'll take 50
The man's on my side with his tricky tricky tricky

Gonna shake you down
Try to get you all broken down
Gonna bend you like a willow tree
I'm gonna try to shake you down
I'm going to get you to breakdown
Gonna bend you at your knee

I can feel the shakedown
Try to get me to breakdown
Got me bending like a willow tree
I can feel a shakedown
Got me all broken down
Got me landing on my knees
