Shakin' Hands

Album: Dark Horse (2008)
  • (Hey, hey) She had her eyes on the prize as the girl next door
    You grow up quick when ya grow up poor
    It's the only way to LA that she knows
    The Hollywood pose, teeth, tits, and toes
    Didn't take her long to leave the boulevard
    So many five star friends with black credit cards
    She'd try anything once, 'cause anything goes
    It never comes easy when you're digging for gold

    (Hey, hey) Well she ain't no Cinderella when she's getting undressed
    'Cause she rocks it like the naughty wicked witch of the west

    Far too pretty to be giving it cheap
    That's why she's making six figures working three days a week
    Ya she'd even break a promise in the promised land
    She didn't make it this far by just shakin' hands
    She'll shake her money maker twice as hard as anyone can
    She didn't make it this far by just shakin' hands

    (Hey, hey) I doubt she'd even let the devil buy her little black book
    City Hall would probably fall if anyone got a look
    Every A list player is a favorite friend
    Says they all taste the same in the back of the Benz
    Her congressman will call her every once in a while
    Got the school girl skirt on the top of the pile
    She's done everyone once, and everyone knows
    You got to get a little dirty when you're digging for gold

    (Hey, hey) Well she ain't no Cinderella when she's getting undressed
    'Cause she rocks it like the naughty wicked witch of the west

    Far too pretty to be giving it cheap
    That's why she's making six figures working three days a week
    Ya she'd even break a promise in the promised land
    She didn't make it this far by just shakin' hands
    She'll shake her money maker twice as hard as anyone can
    She didn't make it this far by just shakin' hands

    Someone spilled the beans and now her name's in the press
    Tough to keep it all a secret when you're one of the best
    The judge is going easy 'cause he paid for her chest
    Ya he loves his little naughty wicked witch of the west

    Far too pretty to be giving it cheap
    That's why she's making six figures working three days a week
    Ya she'd even break a promise in the promised land
    She didn't make it this far by just shakin' hands
    She'll shake her money maker twice as hard as anyone can
    She didn't make it this far by just shakin' hands

    She'll shake her money maker twice as hard as anyone can
    She didn't make it this far by just shakin' hands. Writer/s: CHAD KROEGER, JOEY MOI, MUTT LANGE
