HAND IN GLOVE (SHAW)

Hand in glove
The sun shines out of our behinds
No, it's not like any other love
This one's different - because it's us

Hand in glove
We can go wherever we please
And everything depends upon
How near you stand to me

And if the people stare
Then the people stare
Oh, I really don't know and I really don't care

Hand in glove
The Good People laugh
Yes, we may be hidden by rags
But we've something they'll never have

Hand in glove
The sun shines out of our behinds
Yes, we may be hidden by rags
But we've something they'll never have

And if the people stare
Then the people stare
Oh, I really don't know and I really don't care

So, hand in glove I'll stake my claim
I'll fight to the last breath

If they dare touch a hair on your head
I'll fight to the last breath

For the Good Life is out there somewhere
So I'll stay on your arm, 'cause you're so charming

But I know my luck too well
Yes, I know my luck too well
And I'll probably never see you again
I'll probably never see you again
I'll probably never see you again


This song is sung by Sandie Shaw, who brought this single into the charts, after the poor performance of the original version. The production of this song is noticably more poppy than the original.
Sandie Shaw, a 60's singer, unfortunately most famous for the dire Eurovision entry "Puppet On A String", was one of Morrissey's heroes of his childhood. Morrissey persuaded Shaw to come out of retirement, thus giving her her first hit for more than 20 years.
Shaw ruins this song with the incredibly annoying lyrics change "So I'll stay on your arm, 'cause you're so charming".
