Shaking Hands With the Sun

This song is by Kevin Coyne and Dagmar Krause and appears on the album Babble (1979).

Well, they crucified the Saviour because he knew
A little bit more than maybe me or you
Well, they hung his head and they made him bow so low
But I tell you honey that's not the way we're going to go
No no no

Shaking hands with the sun
Shaking hands with the sun
Shaking hands with the sun
Let's hope the sun it doesn't burn

Well, Mussolini he had it all
They put him and his mistress against the backside wall
Well, they hung 'em from a lamp post, hung them upside down
But I tell you honey that won't drive us to ground

Shaking hands with the sun
Shaking hands with the sun
Shaking hands with the sun
Let's hope the sun it doesn't burn

Well, Hitler he marched through foreign lands
Tried to teach the people how to live and understand
Well, I think he was a great man, I think he knew more than me
Yes, he's setting us up together darling setting us up to be free

I want to fly like him

Shaking hands with the sun
Shaking hands with the sun
Shaking hands with the sun
Let's hope the sun it doesn't burn

Well, the marches at the dark they'll never drive me down
You and I little woman we could run, we could run around
Let's jump in the city, show them what we can do
We've got our ideals and we got our lives now too

We know where to go

Shaking hands with the sun
Shaking hands with the sun
Shaking hands with the sun
Let's hope the sun it doesn't burn

It doesn't burn (repeat 7 times)
