Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Shakedown Street lyrics
[Verse 1]
You tell me this town ain't got no heart
The sunny side of the street is dark
Maybe that's because it's midnight, in the dark of the moon besides
Maybe the dark is from your eyes
Maybe the dark is from your eyes
Maybe the dark is from your eyes
You know you got such dark eyes!

[Chorus]
Nothing shaking on Shakedown Street
Used to be the heart of town
Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart
You just got to poke around

[Verse 2]
You think you've seen this town clear through
Nothing here that could interest you
It's not because you missed out on the thing that we had to start
Maybe you had too much too fast
Maybe you had too much too fast
Maybe you had too much too fast
Or just over played your part

[Chorus]
Nothing shaking on Shakedown Street
Used to be the heart of town
Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart
You just got to poke around
