"Shakin Hands" as written by Robert John Lange, Chad Robert Kroeger and Joey Moi....
(Hey, hey) She had her eyes on the prize as the girl next door
You grow up quick when ya grow up poor
It's the only way to LA that she knows
The Hollywood pose, teeth, tits, and toes
Didn't take her long to leave the boulevard
So many five star friends with black credit cards
She'd try anything once, 'cause anything goes
It never comes easy when you're digging for gold

(Hey, hey) Well she ain't no Cinderella when she's getting undressed
'Cause she rocks it like the naughty wicked witch of the west

Far too pretty to be giving it cheap
That's why she's making six figures working three days a week
Ya she'd even break a promise in the promised land
She didn't make it this far by just shakin' hands
She'll shake her money maker twice as hard as anyone can
She didn't make it this far by just shakin' hands

(Hey, hey) I doubt she'd even let the devil buy her little black book
City Hall would probably fall if anyone got a look
Every A list player is a favorite friend
Says they all taste the same in the back of the Benz
Her congressman will call her every once in a while
Got the school girl skirt on the top of the pile
She's done everyone once, and everyone knows
You got to get a little dirty when you're digging for gold

(Hey, hey) Well she ain't no Cinderella when she's getting undressed
'Cause she rocks it like the naughty wicked witch of the west

Far too pretty to be giving it cheap
That's why she's making six figures working three days a week
Ya she'd even break a promise in the promised land
She didn't make it this far by just shakin' hands
She'll shake her money maker twice as hard as anyone can
She didn't make it this far by just shakin' hands

Someone spilled the beans and now her name's in the press
Tough to keep it all a secret when you're one of the best
The judge is going easy 'cause he paid for her chest
Ya he loves his little naughty wicked witch of the west

Far too pretty to be giving it cheap
That's why she's making six figures working three days a week
Ya she'd even break a promise in the promised land
She didn't make it this far by just shakin' hands
She'll shake her money maker twice as hard as anyone can
She didn't make it this far by just shakin' hands

She'll shake her money maker twice as hard as anyone can
She didn't make it this far by just shakin' hands.

    General CommentYeah, have to think this song was inspired by the high price postitute that brought down Mark Spitzer, and
    kind of opened up a lot of peoples eyes to fact the prositiues aren't always the girls on street corners,
    there are some getting very rich.

    General CommentGotta think right now this is my favorite off the new album, but it's a big tossup really. I know there are a lot of Nickelback haters out there but they really pulled off a kick ass album with this one.

    General Commentwow I love this new song :)
    S.E.X. is a bit better though. Can someone explain me, what:
    "That's why she's making six figures working three days a week"
    figures means in this context?

    General CommentWhen someone makes over $100,000 a year people usually call it "six figures" being that there are six numbers.

    General CommentI love this song too, especially the line "Cause she rocks it like the naughty wicked witch of the west" though I'm not sure what "it" is referring to :P

    Anyway, what's so hard about just typing over hte lyrics form the booklet?

    General CommentBy the way, can anyone explain what a black book is referring to? I think it's in a Kelly Clarkson song as well..

    General Comment'The judge is going easy because he paid for her breasts'

    and it's chest, not breasts.
