Handshake Meet Pokerface
by Less Than Jake

For over half her life
She works from 9 to 5
Crossing T's and dotting I's
The neon lights can't hide
That she's lost her shine
She said the mornings always taste like turpentine
She said understands the point of sacrifice
And so should I

[Chorus]
Paycut but it's a paycheck
Surviving is my best revenge
What hurts you once won't hurt you again
She meant what she said

Weathered lines across her face
Were an even trade
Fingerprints worn down from overwork
And under pay
At minimum wage
She said the overtime is worth these aches and pains
But is it worth the precious time that ticks away
Every second, every day

[Chorus]

She said whoa oh oh
She said whoa oh oh
Whoa oh oh
Whoa oh oh

For over half her life
She walked the straightest lines
She only wanted to provide
A future for
My brother and I

[Chorus]
