Hands Up (Give Me your Heart) (Ottawan) (France)

Ottawan was a pop music French duo, who scored the hit singles "D.I.S.C.O." and "Hands Up (Give Me Your Heart)" in the early 1980s.

Hands up, baby, hands up
Gimme your heart, gimme, gimme your heart
Gimme gimme
Hands up, baby, hands up
Gimme your heart, gimme, gimme your heart
Gimme gimme
All your love
All your love

Angel face, I love your smile,
Love your ways, I like your style.
What can I do to get closer to you?
Don't think twice or count to ten.
Don't take advice, don't ask me when.
Just come my way, simply kiss me and say:

Hands up, baby, hands up
Gimme your heart, gimme, gimme your heart
Gimme gimme
Hands up, baby, hands up
Gimme your heart, gimme, gimme your heart
Gimme gimme
All your love
All your love

With your head up in the sky,
Every day you're walking by,
Why don't you have the stars looking at me?

Stop that game, don't waste your time,
For all your dreams are matching mine,
No use to play hide-and-seek for a week.

Hands up, baby, hands up
Gimme your heart, gimme, gimme your heart
Gimme gimme
Hands up, baby, hands up
Gimme your heart, gimme, gimme your heart
Gimme gimme
All your love
All your love

Let me be your Romeo, your wonder boy,
And your super champ.
Let me take you to the Milky Way
On a holiday (on a holiday)
Follow me (follow me)
why don't you follow me (why don't you follow me)?
Just come my way simply kiss me and say:

Hands up, baby, hands up
Gimme your heart, gimme, gimme your heart
Gimme gimme
Hands up, baby, hands up
Gimme your heart, gimme, gimme your heart
Gimme gimme

Hands up, baby, hands up
Gimme your heart, gimme, gimme your heart
Gimme gimme
Hands up, baby, hands up
Gimme your heart, gimme, gimme your heart
Gimme gimme
All your love
All your love






Hands up, baby, hands up
Gimme your heart, gimme, gimme your heart
Gimme gimme
Hands up, baby, hands up
Gimme your heart, gimme, gimme your heart
Gimme gimme
All your love
All your love

Hands up, baby, hands up
Gimme your heart, gimme, gimme your heart
Gimme gimme
Hands up, baby, hands up
Gimme your heart, gimme, gimme your heart
Gimme gimme
Hands up, baby, hands up
Gimme your heart, gimme, gimme ...









HANDS UP= This is what they say when they attack you with a gun and want you to put your hands up in the air. But in this song, the attack is a love attack, and they don't want your money, they want your heart (= your love).

GIMME= (coll.) Give me.

ANGEL FACE= You call angel face to somebody who looks very pretty and innocent.

YOUR WAYS= The way you are, the way you move, the way you behave.

YOUR STYLE= (external appearance) The way you move, the way you dress, the way you talk...

THINK TWICE= If you think twice before doing something, you spend some time thinking carefully about it, you doubt, you take your time deciding if you should do it or not.

COUNT TO TEN= If you count to ten before doing something, you allow for some time before you make a decision and don't act on the heat of the moment.

COME MY WAY= Come to me.

WALKING BY= If you walk by a place (or person), you walk in that direction but don't stop, you continue walking and go away.

THE STARS= Fate, destiny. If the stars look at you, you are lucky.

GAME= The game of love, when people pretend they are not really interested just because they want the other person to get interested.

YOUR DREAMS ARE MATCHING MINE= What you want is the same as what I want.

NO USE TO...= If it is no use to do something, it is a stupid thing to do it because you will get no result.

HIDE-AND-SEEK= A children's game where one person hides away and the rest must try to find him/her (seek = search, look for).

YOUR ROMEO= Your romantic lover (based on Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet)

WONDER BOY= A boy who has supernatural powers.

CHAMP= (coll.) Champion.

THE MILKY WAY= The name of our galaxy.

 

The message of this song is very simple and straightforward:

I love you, I know you love me, so stop playing games or thinking about it and just come and tell me you want my love too.
