​Golden Handshake Girl

This song is by Flesh for Lulu and appears on the album Big Fun City (1985) and on the album Fresh Flesh (1986).

I met you in a dream last night
Your coat was open so I slipped inside
Just like I never went away
It was only yesterday that I laid your ghost to rest
Now I'm lying in the gutter
On the street where you live
Trying to read a letter
A change for the better
This is not news to me
I know the world is your oyster
All the people you despise
Always turn their eyes to the Golden Handshake Girl
The Golden Handshake Girl

I saw you on TV last night
And suddenly you looked just right
Your stage pal Johnny's got the blues
Once a week for an answer
He's like some kind of cancer
And you know he'll be there till the end
And I'm no good at breaking down
I'm no good at breaking down
Well, I'm no good at breaking down
I'm no good at breaking down
Golden Handshake Girl
Well, it's gotta be a kiss off
Anything
Nothing at all
(Breaking down)
Breaking down
(Breaking down)
She's so good, she's so good, so good at breaking down

Hey, El Dorado
You got nothing left to borrow
Just weak in the knees
From the pain of departure
I try and get my hand away
But my fingers gonna curl
In the Golden Handshake Girl
And I'm no good at breaking down
I'm no good at breaking down
Golden Handshake Girl
Well, it's gotta be a kiss or
Anything
Nothing at all
She's so good at breaking down
At breaking down
Look at me I'm back on my back again
Oh excuse me I can't help cracking up again
She's so good, she's so good at breaking down
Oh, the Golden Handshake Girl
I'm no good at breaking down
Well, it's gotta be a kiss or
Anything
Nothing at all
She's so good at breaking down
The Golden Handshake Girl
I'm no good at breaking down
Well, it's gotta be a kiss or
Anything
Nothing at all
She's so good
