Lou Christie – Shake Hands And Walk Away Cryin' lyrics

Rumors getting round
My sweet baby, put me down
Ain't a girl alive with
The suffering I feel inside

Love's not making me a fool
And when you go with me
You play by my rules

If that's the way she wants to play
Then I'll forget her
She's thinking how
She'll beat me to the punch
But I won't let her

[Chorus:]
Shake hands and walk away
(So look at him crying)
Come on, come on, come on, come on
I'm gonna shake hands and walk away
(So look at him crying)
Come on, come on, come on, come on now

I'll never say to you
Breaking up is hard to do
Cause I've got my pride
A big man never cries

There's more to life than you
And you'd better run too

Knowing it's our last goodbye
It's hard to face you
Don't expect me back for more
I'll just erase you

[Chorus:] 2X

Shake hands and walk away
(Walk away, walk away)

There's more to life than you
And you'd better run too

[Chorus:] to fade
