Shanty Town

This song is by Robert Hazard and appears on the album The Seventh Lake (2004).

The night is young
And steamin' hot
All it needs is some colored lights
And a double shot
To get it up on its feet
It's shakin' down in Shanty Town

My girl's so pretty and
Dressed so fine
Gonna have to get her a stick
And a no trespassing sign
When she's doin' the shimmy
Shakin' down in Shanty Town

Some say our lifestyle is lewdidity
But down here we got
One hundred percent humidity
And even a minister's son
Can have a little fun
Shootin' the devil's gun

Down in Shanty Town
The corner bar
Is no grand saloon
Just a gin joint with a jukebox
And a paper painted moon
With all the jitterbugs jumpin'

Shakin' down in Shanty Town
The sun's comin' up
The birds tweet, tweet
The cab ride costs a dollar
So we're walkin' down the street
Church choir girls singin'
Shakin' down in Shanty Town

All week long

It's the boss and mother-in-law and
I'm so over emotional
Come Saturday night
Me and the wife were just devotional

Makin' love all we can
Under a lazy fan
Eatin' our eggs and ham
Down in Shanty Town

The night is young
And so are we
The landlord needs his money
But all the stars are free

We're standin' our ground
Watchin' the sun go down
Shakin' down in Shanty Town
