Leper Hands

(written by Johnny Goudie and Jud Newcomb)

 

Tonight the carousel is gleaming

The Ferris wheel lights up the sky

Between the strong man and the bearded lady

Is the love I thought Iíd never find

And so I got the courage at the hotdog stand

To walk right up and say hello

 

I said, ďIím JohnnyĒ

She said her name was Margaret

I said, ďI sure enjoy your showĒ

Youíre a dreamboat

Iím just a man

Your name is Margaret

But they call you

Leper Hands

Leper Hands

 

If I could step outside myself

Iíd surely see how strange it seems

Because I can not ever be touched

By the woman of my dreams

Youíre a dreamboat

Iím just a man

Your name is Margaret

But they call you

Leper Hands

Leper Hands

 

Just a freak to all the patrons and the passersby

They donít see you like I do

Theyíre all blind

All blind

Youíre a dreamboat

Iím just a man

Others see right through you

But they donít understand

I didnít think I could touch you

Now I know I can

Leper Hands

Leper Hands

Leper Hands

Leper Hands
