lyrics

It's nice to meet you take my hand
Why don't you shake it best you can
I'm limp in the fingers, I'm limp in the mind
I'm limp in the fingers all of the time

I rarely meet somebody new
and fall to pieces when I do
You reach out your fingers
I'm reaching out mine
we reach out our fingers at the same time

It's hard
To shake hands
Like a man
It's hard to shake hands and say
"I'm young and confident
I'm in control of my life and emotions
and everything's going the way that I planned"

Let's make a business deal
between two gents
with an act of trust and acumen

Let's spit on our palms and make
a sacred pact that can't be broke
so help me god

That's quite a grip your boy's got there
His hands are small but oh-so strong
He's squeezing my fingers, he's squeezing em fine
He's squeezing my fingers awfully tight

If your acquaintance I should make
Please do forgive my frail embrace
It's all in the fingers, it's all in the mind
It's all in the fingers when the entwine

It's hard
to shake hands
Like a man
It's hard to shake hands and say
"I'm young and confident,
I'm in control of my life and emotions
and everything's going the way that I planned"

We shake hands...

Way that I planned...

Make new plans….
