ts time to put on your socks and shoes
And dance away your daily blues
Doesn't matter if you refuse
You can be my fist puppet too

I've got bad eyes and I've got bad teeth
All that matters is what's beneath
My hand, its reaching under you
You can be my fist puppet too

A little ink man on your hand
With big button eyes that understand
You're real, you're right, you're something new
And you can be my fist puppet too
Sweaty sticky gummy mouth
You chew it up, it comes back out
You leave it there for me to find
I take this offering as a sign
That you're my fist puppet
