Giant Lobster Hands


by Jerry Ratch


He sure can play piano
With those giant lobster hands
In his ratty raccoon coat
And his old black cowboy hat

They really do express
What's been hidden deep
Inside his heart and limbs
That makes all the ladies weep

His boots of Spanish leather
With a face like sultry weather
His raspy croaking voice
Picking out his words of choice

Yeah, he sure can play piano

With those giant lobster hands of his
Running up and down the scales
Of what it is that he has witnessed

 

Lobster hands, O lobster hands

Spreading out over the piano keys

Without a ring on his ring finger

Just as pretty as you please

How those fingers sure can tease

How those fingers sure can tease

 

And every other man in the band

Pays homage to those hands

And all the ladies in the front row

Somehow seem to know and understand

What those hands can do to them

They surely seem to know

 

He sure can play piano
With those giant lobster hands
In his ratty raccoon coat
And his old black cowboy hat

They really do express
What's been hidden deep
Inside his heart and limbs
That makes all the ladies weep

That makes every one of them weep
