The Dogtown Shuffle Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Keep your eyes wide open, babe
If you decide to take the long walk
My city screams of danger
And you're on borrowed time
It comes from a jealous clock

And you're a permanent stranger
So the last of the wild frontier kings
Is held for further questioning
When nothing is left but death and taxes
The matter of the real fact is

You go through life as someone's doormat
While you don't get no sporting chance
There ain't much distance between a pat on the back
And a kick in the pants

You do the Dogtown shuffle
I know you talk the talk, yes I do
I do the Dogtown shuffle
Yeah, but can you walk the walk?

Lemme see ya do it one time

Some self-made guy gets it in the ass
At the local mini-mall
Looks more like a warning than an example
And late at night
They said he used to sleep the sleep of the just

I sleep the sleep of the just after
They said the wild boys go head to head
And like the good book says be quick or dead
Ante up or let 'em go
'Cause I'm filing charges on your soul

It's just a joke and you're the punchline
Yeah, the streets are a million laughs
And if I must, well, in God I trust
Everybody else gotta pay cash

You do the Dogtown shuffle
But can you talk the talk? Let me hear ya
You do the Dogtown shuffle
But can you walk the walk?

Hey, get it off the record, man

Yeah, I figured I was gonna go down
And get a little breakfast
At the local Taco Truck
Yeah, my guise could use some refinement

But I'm on a self improvement kick these days
So what the fuck, man?
Hey man, there was a line behind me
A line behind me

Yeah, they always try to nail ya
Mom, God, pie, the whole routine
Well, here's a little trick that'll never fail ya
In your time of need

You do the Dogtown shuffle
Yeah, can you talk the talk, baby?
You do the Dogtown shuffle
Well, lemme see you walk the walk, walk it

Are ya, are ya, are ya ready boots? Start walking
Excuse me but I'm new in town
I was wondering if I could get directions to your place?

There goes the neighborhood
