Bob Seger - Shakedown Lyrics




No matter what you think you pull you'll find it's not enough
No matter who you think you know you won't get through
It's a given L.A. law
Someone's faster on the draw
No matter where you hide I'm comin' after you yeah

No matter how the race is run it always ends the same
Another room without a view awaits downtown
You can shake me for a while
Live it up in style
No matter what you do I'm gonna take you down

Shakedown
Breakdown
Takedown
Everybody wants into the crowded line
Breakdown
Takedown
You're busted
Let down
Your guard
Honey, just about the time you're thinkin' it's alright
Breakdown
Takedown
You're busted

This is a town where everyone is reachin' for the top
This is a place where second best will never do
It's okay to want to shine
But once you step across that line
No matter where you hide I'm comin' after you

Shakedown
Breakdown
Takedown
Everybody wants into the crowded line
Breakdown
Takedown
You're busted
Shakedown
Breakdown
Honey, just about the time you're thinkin' it's alright
Breakdown
Takedown
You're busted

Ah, busted
Aw aw
Shakedown
Breakdown
Takedown
Everybody wants into the crowded line
Breakdown
Takedown
You're busted
Shakedown
Breakdown
Honey, just about the time you're thinkin' it's alright
Breakdown
Takedown
You're busted

Shakedown
Breakdown
Takedown
Everybody wants into the crowded line
Breakdown
Takedown
You're busted
Let down
Your guard
Honey, just about the time you're thinkin' it's alright
Breakdown
Takedown
Ah, you're busted

Shakedown
Breakdown
Takedown
Everybody wants into the crowded line
Breakdown
Takedown
You're busted
Let down
Your guard
Honey, just about the time you're thinkin' it's alright

    My favorite Bob Seger song. Love the energy. Hit the gas! Radio only plays the same three Bob Seger songs and this is one that is not burned out and was his biggest hit by far. Love it!

  26. Tom Dalfonzo

    The only #1 hit single Bob Seger ever had in his entire career. That is not right.

  42. North Texas Transportation Network

    Cruisin down the block in your 84’ Recaro Trans Am, @ Selpulveda and Wilshire. Trio of LAPD cars run the light during a chase

  49. Frank Esposito

    YA....BUSTED !!!

  50. Wilmer Giron

    Running down a dream sounds a bit like this!

  51. Terry Vinson

    Hard to believe this was Seger's only number one. There's a reason he hardly ever plays it in concert. Pretty sure he knew how shamelessly commercial it was. Not a bad tune, but definitely not on my personal list of his all-time top 25.

    Simply LW97.

    Have you also noticed how much different his voice sounds in here? Very black IMO

  52. ShreadTheWeapon

    It’s the end of August 2019. I can just imagine the 400+ thumbs down on this number are people who don’t like 80s Bob Seger. My note to them: lighten up!

  53. Sawtooth Survival

    Billy!!! Are you Driving with your eyes opened or are you Using the Force?!!

  54. Mikey_Suze Four

    416 haters just need a quick shakedown, then get thrown into solitary confinement.

  55. EricWilke1141987

    Yo man, we've got to talk seriously. Who do you think you are; Clint Eastwood? Dirty Rosewood?

  56. PaidRandom

    Monday night football singer...am I right?

    Jeff Kuntz

    No that's Hank Williams jr.

  57. thejonsonator

    "Don't think Axel, makes my dick itch"!

  58. Michael Banaszak

    Beverly Hills Cop II should have taken place on Axel Foley's home turf: Detroit...

    Mikey_Suze Four

    Agreed Michael!

  59. Cleiton Santos Costa

    Bob Seger - Shakedown 2019?

    James Shaler

    DAMN RIGHT!! 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁

  60. JQ LLC

    This song is super cheesy, but this movie was hysterical.

    Especially Judge Reinhold becoming a gun nut

  61. Edman25

    "Yo man is that a freakin .44, what's that for?!"
    "After the shootout at the club I figured I needed more firepower"
    "Yo man we seriously gotta talk, who the hell you tryna be, Clint Eastwood, Dirty Rosewood?!"

  62. Mikey_Suze Four

    *Shakedown, Break Down, Take Down You're Busted!*

  63. Max Shea

    They wanted Glenn Frey to do this song. Smugglers Blues, after all. Glenn declined. Bob took it on. The two later joked that they kept the money in Michigan.

    Mikey_Suze Four

    The producers made the right decision.

  64. Mark Carlson

    Freeze, you are all under arrest. You do that again i will shoot you myself. Billy i am going to make you pay for this! Lol...

  65. Adam Edwards

    All of you Bob Seger fans should go pick up some of the albums by the Bob Seger System band bobs first band you will love it just the same.
