Song Lyric Sunday (Slow Hand)…

This is my contribution to Song Lyric Sunday for Jim Adams’s blog. This week’s prompt…Ankles/Hands/Feet/Fingers/Toes/Wrists

SLOW HAND by The Pointer Sisters

As the midnight moon, was drifting through
The lazy sway of the trees
I saw the look in your eyes, lookin’ into mine
Seeing what you wanted to see
Darlin’ don’t say a word, cause I already heard
What your body’s sayin’ to mine
I’m tired of fast moves
I’ve got a slow groove
On my mind I want a man with a slow hand
I want a lover with an easy touch
I want somebody who will spend some time
Not come and go in a heated rush
I want somebody who will understand
When it comes to love, I want a slow hand On shadowed ground, with no one around
And a blanket of stars in our eyes
We are drifting free, like two lost leaves
On the crazy wind of the night
Darlin’, don’t say a word, ’cause I already heard
What your body’s sayin’ to mine
If I want it all night
You say it’s alright
We got the time’ Cause I got a man with a slow hand
I got a lover with an easy touch
I got somebody who will spend some time
Not come and go in a heated rush
I found somebody who will understand
When it comes to love, I want a slow hand I want it all night
Please say it’s alright
It’s not a fast move
But a slow groove
On my mind’ Cause I got a man with a slow hand
I got a lover with an easy touch
I found somebody who will spend some time
Not come and go in a heated rush
I found somebody who will understand
I found a lover with a slow hand
Oh, lover with the slow hand
And I get all excited with his easy touch
I found somebody who will spend the night
Not come and go in a heated rush

Songwriters: Michael Clark & John Bettis

Not the easiest prompt to write about. But I just really like this song. It’s definitely my style of lovemaking 😉 Trivia on the song: The Songwriters didn’t want it to be sung by The Pointer Sisters but it managed to reach #7 on the R&B Charts in 1980. It was covered by Conway Twitty and rose to #1 on the Country Charts in 1981.
