Clapton-Slavich

Chinatown Shakedown
I went down to Gentleman Jim's,
He looked so wild, I didn't recognize him,
I got out the side door, 'cause I had a hunch
That when Jim gets wild he packs a real
Mean punch,
I said: "Hey Jim, now that's O.K.
I'll come back and catch you on a better day!"
Alienation on the second floor,
I gave it all, but you wanted more,
There's one thing honey, I can't understand,
Why do you mistake me for some other man
We scratch and fight, and then clutch at straws,
Well mama you know where you an find
That door!
I've got the feeling
We'll get this right,
It may seem strange to you,
But it's just part of life
Down in Chinatown -
Shakedown
From now on this is a friendly zone,
And everybody here can call this home
I said: "Hey mama, now that's O.K.
Might try and catch you on a better day"
I've got the feeling
We'll get this right right,
It may seem strange to you
But it's just a part of life
Down in Chinatown
Shakedown, mama
Here in Chinatown
It's a shakedown
