Hands off
I had a dream they took my hands off
Although you probably think that I'm soft boiled
I'm still in love with you

Girlfriend, don't sit 'round waiting for the world to end
I'll keep my distance but I won't pretend
I'm not in love with you

[Chorus:]
And it's all your fault. You spiked my malt
You slipped a mickey in my heart
And I can't shake free, although I'm shaking like a tree
I should've never let it, I should've never let it start

Deep end. I guess I'm going off the deep end
It's only 'cause you've got a hand to lend
I'm still in love with you

Crap shoot. You've got the snake eyes and lizard boots
I like you better in your birthday suit, yeah
I'm in love with you.

[Chorus: Repeat 2X]
Hands off. I shot another leaded star
