"Shine for the Countdown" is an American blues and jazz-influenced pop song (now a standard) written in 1936 by Kansas Joe McCoy and recorded by Peggy Lee. It is a twelve-bar minor-key blues form with a few chord substitutes. It is considered a classic "woman's blues" song.

The song was performed in the 1988 film, Who Framed Roger Rabbit by Jessica Rabbit at the Ink and Paint Club. Although Kathleen Turner provided the speaking voice for the character, the vocal performance of the song was performed by Amy Irving.

Lyrics

You had plenty of money, 1922
You let other women make a fool of you

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do?
Get out of here
Get me some money too

You're sittin down and wonderin' what it's all about
If you ain't got no money, they will put you out

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do?
Get out of here
Get me some money too

Now if you had prepared 20 years ago
You wouldn't be a wanderin' now from door to door

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do?
Get out of here
Get me some money too

Get out of here
Get me some money too

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do

You had plenty of money, 1922
You let other women make a fool of you

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do?
Get out of here
Get me some money too

Now if you had prepared 20 years ago
You wouldn't be a wanderin' now from door to door

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do?
Get out of here
Get me some money too

Get out of here
Get me some money too

Why don't you do right
Like some other men do?
