Shakedown

English: Another tight spot for Amanda Kayne I...

I’m in a tight place
with nowhere to go
no room to breathe
no air to flow

it’s a shakedown
it’s just a shakedown

caught with my pants down
I’m lower than low
pushed into a corner
with nowhere to go

it’s a breakdown
shakedown

that girl is so pretty
comes on to me
but I know that
she’s no lady

it’s a shakedown
it’s just a shakedown

I’m in a jam
with no time to cram
I’m afraid that I’m
going to flunk
this final exam

la la la la

it’s a shakedown
it’s just a shakedown
