Lyrics

Shakedown
=========
Some may call it blackmail
telling everyone
In town
Braggin
Bout
tearin all those
reputations down

Your white horse
Is
Breathin fire
your smile is
upside down
And every Juan is nervous
With the I.C.E.man coming round

Diggin deep inside
Their pockets
Gettin ready
For
THE SHAKEDOWN

The Lone Ranger says to
Tonto
Man
What is goin down ?

He knowsTonto knows whats what
Cuz he gots his ear down to the ground

Tonto just looks up
Says I hear money changing hands
Kimo Sabe
You can't mistake
That sound

Better not
Wait for the posse to show
Cuz
We're headed for
The big SHAKEDOWN

Giddy up Scout

Tricks of the trade
You thought you had it made
You thought you had
your thing - all locked down
But better come out the thicket
And buy your ticket
The circus is in town

Pennies drop from pockets
Silver Dollars fall right to the ground
Better watch your back
And hold your hat
We're headed for the
Shakedown

Promises - paybacks - KICKBACKS
Thinking you
Might get rocked and rolled
But Don't look now
Mr. J.Q.
Your soul has just been sold

One hand washes the other
When you
Grease a lot of palms
They all
Try to keep a low profile
While they slip out of town

What's the difference between
Politics - the Mafia and the Freedom of the Press
Last time I looked - Al Capone
Looked just like Elliot Ness
Yeah last time I looked Al Capone
Looked just like Elliot Ness
