(Brewster, Neeson, Brewster)

Young man in Morocco
Buys a diamond ring
Takes it across the water
Just to see what luck it brings
Young girl dressed in midnight
Sets his blood on fire
You can't buy my soul with gold
But my heart is up for hire

I can't shake it

Drivin' in your Fleetwood
To the sports of kings today
Top hat cane and ascot
That's the game you play
Jumpin' from a window
Shirt half off your back
Better take the elevator
And find another track

I can't shake it

I gotta a monkey on my back
And I just can't shake it
