Fingerpoppin'

Album: Cut the Crap (1985)
  • This here finger of mine
    Is gonna point to the beat, right on time
    This finger points in a brand new dance
    This finger points for a new romance

    This here finger's got no ring
    It'll point at anything
    This finger points gonna pop tonight
    Gonna point at the best girl in sight

    Don't talk shop
    Fingerpop
    Don't talk shop
    Fingerpop

    Girls, girls round the floor
    Are you wondering what you came for
    Why do these boys stand in groups
    Are they urban tribes of fighting troops

    Girls, girls it's time to act
    Time to beat gonna make contact
    Make it plain and make it clear
    Just point out who you want to hear

    Don't talk shop
    Round the house
    Fingerpop

    don't' talk shop
    (???)
    Man or mouse

    Don't talk shop
    Fingerpop
    Don't talk shop
    Fingerpop

    Boys, boys cat got your tongue
    Can't you see she's the prettiest one
    Better act real hurt
    Just turn around kickin' the dirt

    This here (???) is on selling street
    Tell the girl who you want to meet
    This here finger gonna point tonight
    Gonna point at the best girl in sight

    Gonna move
    Gonna move
    Gonna move
    Gonna move

    Girls, girls go around the floor
    Can't remember what you came here for

    Don't talk shop
    Fingerpop
    Don't talk shop
    Fingerpop

    This here finger of mine
    Gonna point to the beat, right on time
    This finger points in a brand new dance
    This finger points for a new romance

    This here finger's got no ring
    And it gets to point at anything
    This finger points rock tonight
    Gonna point at the best girl in sight Writer/s: BERNARD RHODES, JOE STRUMMER
