Lyrics - Nervous Shakedown

(Young, Young & Johnson)

Taken from the album Flick Of The Switch

Recorded at Compass Point Studios, Nassau, Bahamas


Released in 1983

Produced by AC/DC

"Freeze" said the man cruisin' the beat
"You get your hands up and spread your feet"
"Don't you move an inch" I heard him say
"Or you'll be doin' time until the judgement day"
And he said : "Don't tell me no lies, give me alibis
'Cause if you cross my path you'll be doin' life"
It's a dirty lie

It's a shakedown, and it's a nervous shakedown
Another shakedown, another nervous shakedown
Well it's a shakedown, and it's a nervous shakedown
We got a shakedown, another nervous shakedown

It's lookin' like a setup

"Take a dime" said the man
"You can make one call
You got a one-way ticket to the County Hall"
Well the judge looked high and I looked low
And when he smiled at me it was a one-man show
He said :
"Two to five, the jury decides" yeah
"Double parole if you survive"
It's a dirty lie

It's a shakedown, and it's a nervous shakedown
Another shakedown, another nervous shakedown
Well it's a shakedown, and it's a nervous shakedown
We got a shakedown, another nervous shakedown

Yeah they gonna get you this time
And throw away the key yeah

Look at me, oh

Yeah it's a shakedown, and it's a nervous shakedown
Another shakedown, another nervous shakedown
You get a shakedown, and it's a nervous shakedown
Well it's a shakedown, another nervous shakedown
Shake ya down shake ya down, and it's another shakedown
Well it's a shakedown, another nervous shakedown
Shake ya down shake ya down, and it's a nervous shakedown
Ooh it's a shakedown

It's a shakedown on -
You, yes
