Lyrics

You may say I haven't served you well
You may say your life's a living Hell
But I can look at you and say through all your bellyaches
I may not move no mountains, but then you ain't no great shakes

No great shakes, I won't come a crawlin'
No great shakes, I've learned it all too well
And I will get you off my mind, no matter what it takes
The saints may not salute me, but then you ain't no great shakes

Drink too much, I fight and smoke and flirt
I come home late, there's lipstick on my shirt
But I told you I'd change my ways and learn from my mistakes
I'm no Mother Theresa, but then you ain't no great shakes

No great shakes, I won't come a crawlin'
No great shakes, I've learned it all too well
And I will get you off my mind, no matter what it takes
The saints may not salute me, but then you ain't no great shakes

So go your way, I won't follow behind
Here I'll stay, just me and my moonshine
and drink a toast to freedom, while my heart in pieces breaks
and I try to convince myself that you ain't no great shakes

No great shakes, I won't come a crawlin'
No great shakes, I've learned it all too well
And I will get you off my mind, no matter what it takes
The saints may not salute me, but then you ain't no great shakes
