My nails are dark with dirt
And my face flooded with sweat
You refuse to take the hand I offer in love
I shall therefore not join hands with you
For unclean hands make you uneasy

Though my heart is cleansed with love
You say that shall not matter friend
For those who have clean nails

[Hata Bildir]
