​Shake The Hands Of Time

This song is by Romeo Void and appears on the album Benefactor (1982).

He left a hole in the wall
You ask, "Did he call?"
Tonight, tonight
Honestly, honestly
"Tonight, today?"
The chair at his table was unavailable
With time to waste, you savored the taste
Honestly, honestly

You gotta shake the hands of time
Don't be the shadow that falls behind
You gotta shake the hands of time
Get that jerk off your mind

Your wild hair against the wall
"Did anyone call? Tonight, tonight?"
Honestly, honestly
There's no money in boyfriends
Look ahead, don't look back
You gotta shake him off your back

Just shake the hands of time
C'mon, girl, get him off your mind
Take it from me, I do it all the time
Off my mind

Don't hover in your covers
Turn on the heater tonight, tonight
Honestly, honestly
"Tonight, today?"
Drive on a freeway, get yourself on a plane
Forget the man, forget his name
Little sister, my little sister

Just shake the hands of time
C'mon, girl, get him off your mind
Take it from me, I do it all the time
You gotta shake the hands of time, shake

It just makes me want to spit
To think of you, you and him
Don't be the shadow that falls behind
Get that jerk off your mind
