Well, he's trying to survive up on Mulholland Drive
He's got the phone in the car in his hand
Everybody's trying to be a friend of mine
Even a dog can shake hands
He wants twenty per cent
'Cause he knew you back when

Now they all want a piece of the band
Everybody's trying to be a friend of mine
Even a dog can shake hands
All the worms and the gnomes are having lunch at Le Dome
They're all living off the fat of the land
Everybody's trying to be a friend of mine

Even a dog can shake hands
