Detroit Breakdown
The J. Geils Band Lyrics


Music is blastin′
We're havin′ a ball
Everybody doin' it
Right in the hall

Plaster is fallin'
Right on the floor
We′re tearin′ it up
And that's for sure
Doin′ the
Detroit breakdown
Oh motor city
Shakedown
A-doin' the
Detroit breakdown
I said the motor city
Shakedown

Jumpin′ toes
And everything goes
Hot night
Sweatin'
Right in your clothes

A-bittersweet
For dancin′ feet
Everybody did it
Found her right
In the street

Doin' the
Detroit breakdown
I said motor city
Shakedown
Ow
Detroit breakdown
Hey motor city
Shakedown

I'm losin′ touch
I′m feelin' no pain
Everything is headin′
Right down the drain

I'm gettin′ crazy
This i swear
I'm past
My limit honey
I don′t care

Doin' the
Detroit breakdown
Oh motor city
Shakedown ah
Detroit breakdown
Oh motor city
Shakedown
Breakdown

Yeah
Come on
Ow

Do it
Um
Uh
Yeah

If you're goin′ out on
Ooh on a dare
Don′t get caught baby
Found in my bed

Station to station
What you got
I'm gettin′ ready man
To blow my top a-yeah

Ah hands on my head
And holdin' my ′caine
Jumpin' up and crazy
I′ve gone insane

I got somethin' mean
Stickin' in my pocket
Until you′ve tried it
You better not
Knock it

Doin′ the
Detroit breakdown
Oh motor city
Shakedown
Yeah
Detroit breakdown

You're doin′
The motor city
Shakedown
Let me hear ya
Jerome

Detroit breakdown
I said the motor city
Shakedown

Oh
Detroit breakdown
Oh the motor city
Shakedown
Come on babies
Now do the
Detroit breakdown

Ya hear me
You're doin′ the
Motor city
Shakedown
Let me see ya baby
Ah do the
Detroit breakdown

Oh the motor city
Shakedown
Shake it shake it baby
Ah
Yeah
Wow

Oh you're doin′ the
Detroit breakdown
Yeah motor city
Shakedown
Let's do the
Detroit breakdown
Motor city
Shakedown

Doin' it ah ya doin′ it
Doin′ it ah doin' it
The Detroit
Breakdown ha
Motor city
Shakedown

Ow

Doin′ it doin' it i said
Shake it down
