Lyrics

Strip Poker Motel
Got a small blue tail
Hot ice, cold cash
I never been no good at
Staying out of jail
Wheel spin, roulette
Who's giving, don't get
Ripped shirt, black eye
Tuxedo, bow tie
Dark sound, straight road
Get lost, get loaded
Enlisted men, off duty
Stolen clouds, dark beauty
Cold gun, wild rose
Night clerk, door closed
Lie down baby
Your love is a faucet
ahhhh
Called China, cell phone
Chun King, not home
You know I feel like a
Preacher waving a gun around

Shake it
Shake it
Shake it baby
Shake it
Shake it
Shake it now

Shake it
Shake it
Shake it baby
Shake it
Shake it
Shake it now

Outside, it's damp
Put a towel on that lamp
You look hot in this
Light
I can love you all night
Shoes off, hair down
Got a pink night gown
Mike Tyson, KO'ed
On the wild, blue road
Small town, straight road
That rooster, done crowed
Flat tire, homemade cross
You know I feel like a
Preacher waving a gun around

Shake it
Shake it
Shake it baby
Shake it
Shake it
Shake it now

Shake it
Shake it
Shake it baby
Shake it
Shake it
Shake it now
