Some would try to persuade you,
That all begins with the eyes
That they open up a window
And let you see inside
But eyes are made for looking out
And not for looking in.
A surer way to get a read
Means going skin to skin
(Before your mind runs off with you,
I mean a handshake, pure and true)
Shake that person by the hand
Treat them to a smile
You’ll know all you need to know
Solely from their style
Too limp and they’re a lettuce
Too firm and they’re a bully
Too wet means they’re all slippery –
Understand this fully!
So when you meet someone new
Grasp that hand just right
Greet them with a “how do you do?”
And your future’s looking bright!
