"Praying Hands" as written by Gerald V Casale and Mark Allen Mothersbaugh....
You got your left hand
You got your right hand
The left hand's diddling
While the right hand goes to work
You got both hands
You got praying hands
They pray for no man
O.k, relax

Assume the position
Go into doggie submission

    General CommentThe song's lyrics are wrong, it should be:

    you got your left hand
    you got your right hand
    you got your left hand
    you got your right hand

    With the left hand diddling
    while the right hand goes to work
    I said the left hand's diddling, now
    while the right hand goes to work

    you got both hands
    you got both hands
    you got praying hands
    you got praying hands

    they pray for no man
    they pray for no man
    o.k....relax...
    assume the position
    go into doggie submission

    wash your hands three times a day
    always do what your mother did say
    brush your teeth in the following way
    wash your hands three times a day

    you got your left hand
    you got your right hand
    you got your left hand
    you got your right hand

    With the left hand diddling
    while the right hand goes to work
    I said the left hand's diddling, now
    while the right hand goes to work

    you got both hands
    you got both hands
    you got praying hands
    you got praying hands

    they pray for no man
    they pray for no man

    (roll over, play dead)
    (get spiritual enlightenment)

    o.k....relax...
    assume the position
    go into doggie submission

    wash your hands three times a day
    always do what your mother did say
    brush your teeth in the following way
    wash your hands three times a day

    And the song's about masterbation. Easy as that.

    General CommentSong could also be about playing music. On a guitar your left hands didling (playing with the chord progressions) While your right hand goes to work (plucking the strings, repetitively).

    General CommentI thought the song was about being another religious follower by bowing down to your God. You can also receive spiritual enlightenment after masturbation as well.
