P. Barrere, M. Kibbee

First time that I saw her
down at the predator's ball
She was lookin' ore thatn a little bit lost
Like this was her very first cattle call
She was a quick understudy
She learned to use her appeal
'Cause now all you hear is the squeal of the wheels
Of her super-nice over-priced automobile, yeah
She's makin my heart beat
Jumpin' at every turn
A hundred miles an hour, yeah
Like she's got money to burn
Whoa, she's an overnight sensation
Oh yeah, she knows her way around
Won't waste time on conversation
Gonna take ya right down
Down to Shakeytown
Ya' know she took me honky-tonkin'
Out on the Westside Drive
Whe was star at the monkey bar
And I was social suicide
And now she's off in a corner
With a Hollywood wheel
Lookin' to hook a development deal for
Fifty grand, honey, and all she can steal
She got the hang of the fast life
She gets thte parts that don't speak
She introduce me to jack-knife
That's her agent this week
Whoa, she's an overnight sensation
Oh yeah, she knows her way around
Won't waste time on conversation
Gonna take ya right down
Down to Shakeytown
She will take you down
Take you all the way down
Down to Shakeytown
Got a Czech director, yeah
And her Italian camera man
Ya know they try to protect her
But she's doin' the best that she can
Whoa, she's an overnight sensation
Oh yeah, she knows her way around
Won't waste time on conversation
Gonna take ya right down
Down to Shakeytown
She will take you down
Take you all the way down
Down to Shakeytown
She will take you down
Take you all the way down
Down to Shakeytown
