  • We only came here to play rock'n'roll
    Share some times with some people we know
    Drink some wine
    Give us some time

    We ain't no wise boys we ain't no fools
    We tried to play clean and keep to the rules
    We take and we give, just playin' our gig
    But we got laid over

    Ya we was done over
    Somebody tell us what's goin' down
    Don't need another Vancouver shakedown
    Six miles high, six miles along

    Chasin' the sun we've come to sing you a song
    Deliver our goods
    We're just rock'n'roll dudes
    All these behind us, and one more to go

    Fly to Vancouver, to do the lastshow
    It's got to be good, like we know that it should
    But we got laid over
    Ya we was doneover

    Somebody tell us what's goin' down
    Don't need another Vancouver shakedown
    Vancouver shakedown
    Vancouver shakedown

    We only came here to play rock'n'roll
    Share some times with some people we know
    Drink some wine
    Give us some time

    But we got laid over
    Ya we was done over
    Somebody tell us what's goin' down
    Don't need another Vancouver shakedown

    Vancouver shakedown
    Vancouver shakedown
    Vancouver shakedown
    Vancouver shakedown
    Vancouver shakedown
    Vancouver shakedown
