Keep Your Hands To Yourself
Georgia Satellites

I got a little change in my pocket goin' jing-a-ling-a-ling
Wants to call you on the telephone baby, a-give you a ring
But each time we talk, I get the same old thing
Always no hugg-ee no kiss-ee until I get a weddin' ring
My honey my baby, don't put my love upon no shelf
She said don't hand me no lines and keep your hands to yourself

be -be -be -baby baby baby why you wan' treat me this way
You know I'm still your lover boy I still feel the same way
That's when she told me a story, 'bout free milk and a cow
And said no hugg-ee no kiss-ee until I get a weddin' vow
My honey my baby, don't put my love upon no shelf
She said don't hand me no lines and keep your hands to yourself

(Go man go)
Hold it here
See I wanted her real bad, and I was about to give in
But that's when she started talking about true love,
started talking about sin
And I said, honey I'll live with you for the rest of my life,
She said no hugg-ee no kiss-ee until you make me your wife-a
My honey my baby, don't put my love upon no shelf
She said don't hand me no lines and keep your hands to yourself

Dan Baird, with or without the Satellites, should be huge. It's a shame he isn't. Probably because his music comes in somewhere in the space between country and rock. Maybe it should be called new wave southern rock. In any case, he's an incredible songwriter and performer. If you like the Georgia Satellites, get your hands on the four solo albums he's released. You won't be disappointed.

According to the liner notes, by Jimmy Gutermann to the Satellites' CD 'Let It Rock' , Mauro Magellan was part of the original Georgia Satellites from the beginning. I never heard anything in the song about an expectant mother, or shotgun wedding, but yeah, it IS one of the classic 'Bar Band' tunes of all time...a sure-fire dance-floor-filler.

I didn't know this was about a shot-gun wedding.

Chuck Berry is rolling around somewhere trying to figure out how first Keith Richards and later the Georgia Satellites found a way to make money off the licks that left him nearly bankrupt. Many bar bands cover this tune because it is so simple, but this version can't be touched. I should know--I cover it myself and can't come close.

Mauro Magellan, the most recent drummer, lives in my hometown of Monroe, Wisconsin.
