Let’s Make a Deal

 

Words & Music: Bobby Shiflett

As sure as I’m standing here I think you’re ready to make a deal
For a price, I delight the senses. For a price: unlimited thrills
If you will just sign right here: sign on the dotted line
You can have what is yours and I can take what is mine.

We can’t have fun just sittin’ around
There’s somethin’ waitin’ outside of town
We can’t have fun just sittin’ around
There’s someone waitin’ underground.

I know why you’re sitting there. I know the reason you came.
You know that I’m talking to you. You know I know your name.
I see clearly all you think so there’s no point in pushing away.
Take a moment to catch your breath, because you’re throwing your life away.

We can’t have fun just sittin’ around
There’s somethin’ waitin’ outside of town
We can’t have fun just sittin’ around
There’s someone waitin’ underground.

I can promise you a sliver mine and I can promise you gold
I can promise you anything if you’ll just give me your soul.

We can’t have fun just sittin’ around
There’s somethin’ waitin’ outside of town
We can’t have fun just sittin’ around
We’ve got to be there when the deal goes …down.
