Throwing the Goats

APPEARS ON


Something wrong with his right eye
Bless his high lonesome heart
Looked like his whole wide world was always pulling apart
As he was dynamite fishing for some compliments
Off the banks of old lake providence
On some unknow actress such a tender soul
Looking all over shake rag for a speaking role
Faithfully praying for some kind of break
Afraid that rag ain’t never gonna shake

Shake shake shake shake shake
Shake shake shake shake shake

I am a bull of a man and I can not be stopped
Until I’m stabbed in a ring on a count of that china shop
My baby’s backstage and she’s higher than I am
We got all the integrity that money can't buy
And if you can't audition momma you can not act
That’s a goat throwing truth full of natural fact
If you got it we need you if you don’t we do not
Which is already more time than most people got

Shake shake shake shake shake
Shake shake shake shake shake

I have broken a handful of hearts in my time
Had a handful of people try to break into mine
Seen that wine colored carpet rolled up against a house
With the tall grass covering all my clothes thrown out I’ll choose to
Sometime it takes away what you think it’s bringing
Take my new gal for instance she knows everything
She said this time it’s different like it always was
Something is changing like it never does

Shake shake shake shake shake
Shake shake shake shake shake

Shake shake shake shake shake
Shake shake shake shake shake

Thru the neon she catches his wandering eye
He can see thru her makeup how she started to cry
So he tells her he thought that she was excellent
So she pays him a dynamite compliment
She said your eyes shine like oh hell I don't know
Seems like eye are always shining like something I suppose
Let’s just says that it’s all of those baby
You eyes shine like all that shit
Shake shake shake shake shake
Shake shake shake shake shake
Shake shake shake shake shake
Shake shake shake shake shake

They shine like diamonds
They shine like a car
They shine like cool water
Shine like a brand new car
Shine like diamonds
Shine like stars
Shine like ohh
Shine like brand new car
Shake it for the diamonds
Shake it for the cars
Shake it for the ohhs
Shake it for the brand new car

Shake shake shake shake shake
Shake shake shake shake shake
