1951 Small town kids
got nothing to do
But dream all night
of movie stars and Cadillac cars
And beautiful girls
and big city lights

LA River dragnet coming down
Boom shacka lackalackalackalackalackalacka Boom
Shimmy Shimmy Shake Shimmy Shake Shimmy Shimmy Shimmy
LA River dragnet coming down
Boom shacka lackalackalackalackalackalacka Boom
Shimmy Shimmy Shake Shimmy Shake Shimmy Shimmy Shimmy

From every corner
of this great old nation
Good kids succumb
to the depths of temptation
Homecoming queens
get lost in the cracks
and Quarter Back Heroes
Get strung out on Smack

LA River dragnet coming down
Boom shacka lackalackalackalackalackalacka Boom
Shimmy Shimmy Shake Shimmy Shake Shimmy Shimmy Shimmy
LA River dragnet coming down
Boom shacka lackalackalackalackalackalacka Boom
Shimmy Shimmy Shake Shimmy Shake Shimmy Shimmy Shimmy

You wake up one day
with a monkey on your back
With foil on all your windows
and you're hiding all your tracks
The sheriff's shotgun
don't make a sound
When it's pointed at your corpse
After he shot you down

LA River dragnet coming down
LA River dragnet coming down
Boom shacka lackalackalackalackalackalacka Boom
Shimmy Shimmy Shake Shimmy Shake Shimmy Shimmy Shimmy
Boom shacka lackalackalackalackalackalacka Boom
Shimmy Shimmy Shake Shimmy Shake Shimmy Shimmy Shimmy
