The Lyrics

Gents! Tell it to the hand!
Gents! Tell it to the hand!

Late night creeps so lonely at the bars
Weird men, acned with armpit sweat
They cop feels with their right hand
And hold drinks and cigarettes or cellphones with their left
The young girls laugh right in their face and say
"No way, uh, uh--not you, jerk
You ain't no player, you smell of beer
Your fashion sucks, you nerd!
Gents, tell it to the hand!
Gents, tell it to the hand!

So try as they might
They chase their virile dreams, but instead they get the hand
They act askance when they're asked to dance, say
Tell it to the hand!
Say goodbye Lance or Kevin or Lance, say
Tell it to the hand!

All the bars in the world, they hear this song
All the geeks want the love, breath too strong
It don't look like dancing
Epileptic spazzing
Tell it to the hand, silly man! Silly man!
Gents! Tell it to the hand!
Gents! Tell it to the hand!

"Bufu!" --so askance
"Bufu"-- so askance
They act askance when they're asked to dance, say
Tell it to the hand!
Say goodbye Lance or Kevin or Vance, say
Tell it to the hand!

"Stand back from me, stand back from me, tell it to the hand!" (2x)
"Creepy, creepy, creepy, creepy!"

All the drinks that they drank are now gone (the drinks are now gone!)
All that they want is to bang a gong (just to bang a gong)
Disco records are playing
But the girls are braying,
"Tell it to the hand, silly man! Silly man!"
Gents! Tell it to the hand!
Gents! Tell it to the hand!

(variations of the above through fadeout)

(DEC2) For some reason hearing this song made me want to go play the Dance Dance Revolution version that combines this with a Salt N Pepa song. . .Awesome OS choice (I guess I like disco a little more than I thought--that song has always been kinda groovy) Good parody, original idea, one slight question, was repeating Lance intentional cause that was the only thing that threw me off a tad. . .

Proofing ones work is so vital sometimes! There should have been a "Vance" to replace that second "Lance".

(Dec 2.0) Nice spin on the topic, and amazingly paced as well. Tell it to the fives!

(DEC 2.9) Wonderfully descriptive, Ag....been there, done that, got the T-shirt. The repetition of Lance struck me as a bit odd, but that's a minor quibble. 555

Ha.. I was just about to write "been there, done that etc." when I saw that Kristof had beaten me to it. I did wonder about the two Lances, too (but figured, especially with my choice of subject, that I was in no position to argue about a Lance-lot)

Decathlon...so how many nights did you have to follow me and my girlfriends to the local clubs before you had enough material for this one, Agri? ; ) Nice work...
