lyrics

Cover It Up

Tuning Open G
No Capo
Key G

DGDGBD


There’s some kind of link between the brain and the hands
And the desire to have what you see
It goes through the eyes, and is really no surprise
To a man of the world like me

When eyes alight with jackdaw sight
on an object of great desire
The little worm turns, like the mind never learns
You get burned if you put your hand in the fire

But if the eye don’t see, hand don’t get greedy
Cover it up, Cover it up, Cover it up
If the eye don’t see, mind don’t get needy
Cover it up, Cover it up, Cover it up

There’s some kind of bridge from the eyes to the soul
That causes temptation to grow
There’s some kind of synapse, that cause a mind lapse
In those who find it hard to say no

But if the eye don’t see, hand don’t get greedy…

Some things, you’ve got to tell your children
Some things you’ve got to tell them true
Some things, you’ve got to tell your children
This is what some people see and do
This is what some people see and do
This is what some people see and do
See and do, see and do, see and do, see and do

The use of detection, as some kind of protection
Is all very good as it stands
But the use of detention, as some kind of prevention
Is no cure for covetous hands

But if the eye don’t see, hand don’t get greedy…
