The moon looks mean The crew ain't staying Gonna be some blood Is what they're all saying It's a shakedown cruise (Shakedown, shakedown cruise) And I was just another fool (Shakedown, shakedown cruise) There ain't no easy way out (Shakedown, shakedown cruise) They're gonna shake you Til you shout (Shakedown) (Shakedown cruise) hey, hey They treat you like a dog But you're only human You miss your home Lord, you miss that woman The captain laughs, he says You boys want some sex You can squeeze the sails You can lick the decks It was a shakedown cruise (Shakedown, shakedown cruise) I guess I just was born to lose (Shakedown, shake it up and move) They tell you life is going cheap (Shakedown, shakedown blues) I got myself in pretty deep (Shakedown, shakedown cruise) The fever's hot The winds are blowing cold The captains crazy eye Puts the fear in your soul I heard somebody crying Lord, let this end You know I'll never Go to sea again It was a shakedown cruise (Shakedown, shakedown cruise) And now were sending out the news (Shakedown, shake it up and move) There ain't no victory at sea (Shakedown, shakedown cruise) Unless it's mutiny (Shakedown, shaking in my shoes) Oh, shake me down, boys (Shakedown, shakedown cruise) I'm feeling black and blue (Shakedown, shake it up and move) (Shakedown, shakedown cruise) Shakedown, shakedown cruise I've been abused, I was shaked I was cruised, I'm so confused (Shakedown, shakedown cruise).....
