GEORGE MICHAEL

GEORGE MICHAEL - Hand To Mouth

rate me

Jimmy Got Nothing made himself a name

With a gun that he polished for a rainy day

A smile and a quote from a vigilante movie

Our boy Jimmy just blew them all away

He said it made him crazy

Twenty five years living hand to mouth

Hand to mouth, hand to mouth, hand to mouth

Sweet little baby on a big white doorstep

She needs her mother but her mother is dead

Just another hooker that the lucky can forget

Just another hooker

It happens everyday

She loved her little baby

But she couldn't bear to see her living hand to mouth

Hand to mouth, hand to mouth, hand to mouth

I believe in the gods of America

I believe in the land of the free

But no one told me

(No one told me)

That the gods believe in nothing

So with empty hands I pray

And from day to hopeless day

They still don't see me

(See me)

Everybody talks about the new generation

Jump on the wagon or they'll leave you behind

But no one gave a thought to the rest of the nation

"Like to help you buddy, but I haven't got the time"

Somebody shouted save me

But everybody started living hand to mouth

Hand to mouth, hand to mouth, hand to mouth

There's a big white lady

On a big white doorstep

She asked her daddy and her daddy said "yes"

Has to give a little for the dollars that we get

Has to give a little -

They say it's for the best

Somebody shouted

Maybe

But they kept on living from hand to mouth

Hand to mouth, hand to mouth, hand to mouth

So she ran to the arms of America

And she kissed the powers that be

And someone told me

(Someone told me)

That the gods believe in nothing

So with empty hands I pray

And I tell myself

One day

They just might see me...
