"Mary-Anne With Shaky Hands" as written by and Peter Townshend....
I danced with Linda
I danced with Jean
I danced with Cindy
Then I suddenly see

Mary-Anne with the shaky hands
What they've done to her, man, those shaky hands

Mary is so pretty
The prettiest in the land
Guys come from every city
Just to shake her shaky hands

Linda can cook
Jean reads books
Cindy can sew
But I'd rather know

Mary-Anne with the shaky hands
What they've done to her, man, those shaky hands

Mary-Anne with the shaky hands
What they've done to her, man, those shaky hands

Mary-Anne with the shaky hands
What they've done to her, man, those shaky hands

Plenty of drums!
Plenty of drums!
Plenty of drums!
Plenty of drums!
Plenty of drums!
Plenty of drums!
Plenty of drums!

    General CommentHahaha this song is hilarious. It's about masturbation, and not about a girl who gives a guy had jobs. Mary anne is a girl the guy in the song dreams of. Great pop song from "the who sell out" album.

    Song MeaningIt could be one of two things:
    Marry Ann is a beautiful kind girl who's 'man' was beaten to death and because of this through the trauma of seeing or knowing that she has shaky hands.
    Or it could mean that he man was abusive and someone did something to him so that he couldn't hurt her anymore and her hands are shaky because of the abuse.

    General CommentThe song is written from the point of view of a guy who wants to get to know Mary-Anne because of her (wink wink, nudge nudge) special abilities.
