Crowded House – Left Hand lyrics

It was typical of you
To give it to me plain
The sign on your door
Said make your mind up
Or go away
It was difficult for me
To figure you out

Left hand
Always wants to know
What the right is doing
Tell the way we miss out
On something
We're free

But there is nothing
When I present

It was typical of you
To feather your nest
Try to explain
Me and my big mouth
Were laid to rest
There's nowhere to go
But I'm not hanging around

Left hand
Pick me up
And then you put me down


But there is one thing
When I present

Left hand
Left hand
Left hand
Always wants to know
What the right is doing
