lyrics

This is a holdup
Hands over your shoulders
Rewind your mind and read the signs
I'm afraid it's too late
Though I give you lots of love
More than enough
You found out I save for a rainy day yeah

I hope you'd understand if dealt the same hand,
I check up on it now and then
when you make me mad just to make me feel better yeah
All roads led to wrong, I quit holding on
to the last of my stash then i found out
you took all my love and gone,
Now I gotsta' pull a

Shakedown
Shakedown
Get on the ground
Somebody goin' down and it aint gonna be me
Shakedown
this is a Shakedown
Get on the ground
Somebody going but it aint gonna be me

This is a stickup
Need to zip your lip up
You're the one that stole from me
that which was rightfully mine

I wanna call you no good,
Knowing well and good,
I held back some love of mine.
I'm no exception to the rule, I might act a' fool
a little bit crazed,
players interchange but the game remains the same
That's when I let down my guard, loved you real and hard
showed my true hand, now all alone in the name of love I stand..
Now I gotsta pull a

Shakedown
Shakedown
Get on the ground
Somebody goin' down and it aint gonna be me
Shakedown
this is a Shakedown
Get on the ground
Somebody going but it aint gonna be me

Gonna be me
Gonna be me
Gonna be me
Gonna be me
Gonna be me
Gonna be me
