Troy and Britta chicken fingers
Troy delivers the chicken fingers
to be prepped by Britta.
In the study group's first year at Greendale, a chicken finger shortage in the cafeteria inspired Jeff to orchestrate a caper with the study group in order to make sure they get their share of the popular lunch item. It involved replacing the fry cook Star-Burns with Abed to control the chicken fingers. Once he was inside, Abed then took over the study group and used them in a complicated mafia style distribution system currying favors from everyone on campus for a share of the culinary delight. "Shake Your Moneymaker" plays out over a montage of Abed explaining how his new mafia functions. The song was first heard in the Season One episode "Contemporary American Poultry".

Lyrics:
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
You got to shake your moneymaker, yeah
Shake your moneymaker
You got to shake your moneymaker
And then
I got a gal that lives up on a hill
I got a gal that lives up on a hill
Says she'll let me roll her
But I don't believe she will
She won't shake her moneymaker
Won't shake her moneymaker
I want to roll her I keep beggin'
She won't shake her moneymaker
Won't shake her money maker
She won't
Oh yeah
I got a girl, but she just won't be true
I got a girl, but she just won't be true
Won't let me do the one good thing I tell her to
She won't shake her moneymaker
Won't shake her moneymaker
Won't shake her moneymaker
She won't shake her moneymaker
Won't shake her moneymaker
She won't
Oh yeah
