    Keep your eyes wide open, babe
    If you decide to take the long walk
    My city screams of danger
    And you're on borrowed time
    It comes from a jealous clock
    And you're a permanent stranger
    So the last of the wild frontier kings
    Is held for further questioning
    When nothing's left but death and taxes
    The matter of the real fact is
    You go through life as someone's doormat
    Cause you don't get no sportin' chance
    There ain't much distance 'tween a pat on the back
    And a kick in the pants

    You do the Dogtown Shuffle
    Now do you talk the talk?
    Yes I do!
    I do the Dogtown Shuffle
    But can you walk the walk?

    Lemme see ya do it one time...
    Some self-made guy gets it in the ass
    At the local mini-mall
    Looks more like a warning than an example
    And late at night
    They said he used to sleep the sleep of the just
    I sleep the sleep of the just after
    They said the wild boys go head to head
    And like the good book says be quick or dead!
    So ante up or let 'em go
    Cause I'm filing charges on your soul
    It's just a joke and you're the punchline
    Yeah, the streets are a million laughs
    And if I must, well in, God I trust
    Everybody else gotta pay cash...

    You do the Dogtown Shuffle
    But can you talk the talk?
    Let me hear ya!
    You do the Dogtown Shuffle
    But can you walk the walk?

    Now purely off the record, man...
    Yeah, I figured I was gonna go down
    And get a little breakfast
    At the local Taco Truck
    Yeah, my guise could use some refinement
    But I'm on a self improvement kick these days
    So what the fuck?
    Hey man, there was a line behind me
    A line behind me...
    Yeah they always try to nail ya
    Mom, God, Pie the whole routine
    Well here's a little trick that'll never fail ya
    In your time of need

    You do the Dogtown Shuffle
    Yeah, can you talk the talk, baby?
    You do the Dogtown Shuffle
    Lemme see you walk the walk!
    Walk it!

    Are ya, are ya, are ya ready boots?
    Start walkin'
    Scuse me, but I'm new in town
    I was wonderin' if I could get directions to your place?
    There goes the neighborhood...
