Hands

Written by: Jack Ellison

If we didn't have hands we'd all be mute
Trying to express what we say
Sometimes words are just not enough
We surely need some other way

If we didn't have hands we'd all be mute
Couldn't show our utter disgust
About this and that about ying and yang
About which politician not to trust

If we didn't have hands we'd all be mute
Frustration would rear its head
Valium would surely be the drug of choice
So we use the bad finger instead

If we didn't have hands we'd all be mute
No words are clearer than this
Talk to the hand 'cause the face ain't listening
A sign you surely can't miss

If we didn't have hands we'd all be mute
Need to just take a very deep breath
There's nothing that's really that important
Sometimes lose it myself, must confess
