Every Handshake Is Important - Lyrics

Every Handshake Is Important

In a frayed old robe momma watched you grow
As you sat around in pampers
Clankin pots by the stove
She taught you manners

When daddy was out of town
By that musty old table
She sat you down
Talking ethics and mistakes that could be fatal

She talked about Jesus
Taught you right from wrong
Worked hard no weakness
Same strong words all day long

Same old story same old rules
Don't act like a fool

Every handshake is important
Every handshake is a moment
Your word is your bond
In this life and beyond
Though it means less today
It's important anyway

Every handshake is important
Every handshake is a moment
Can't switch fingerprints
Life's not a sprint
It should be everything
Or life won't mean a damn thing

Though your momma flew out of sight
You're still under her spell
You learned what's right
Remember lessons well

Memories ease the pain
And keep you kinda sane
Even though she went away
Her words stay etched in place

Like an old worn vinyl
You live your life
To words that favor survival
Remember her simple advice

Same old story same old rules
Don't act like a fool

Every handshake is important
Every handshake is a moment
Your word is your bond
In this life and beyond
Though it means less today
It's important anyway

Every handshake is important
Every handshake is a moment
Can't switch fingerprints
Life's not a sprint
It should be everything
Or life won't mean a damn thing

In everything I do
I prefer those who honor the shake
But there's so
So few of us left
What should we do?
What should we do?

Every handshake is important
Every handshake is a moment
Your word is your bond
In this life and beyond
Though it means less today
It's important anyway

Every handshake is important
Every handshake is a moment
Can't switch fingerprints
Life's not a sprint
It should be everything
Or life won't mean a damn thing

End

A handshake is an important moment
Shared between just two
Why are there so few
Who will see it thru?

Every handshake is important
Every handshake is a moment
Every handshake is important
Every handshake is a moment

Every handshake is important
Every handshake is a moment
Every handshake is important
Every handshake is important
