    help me with this jumbled sentence.

    Здесь работают давно Все мои друзья. Ждут шикарные авто Мои руки золотые, Их не буду делать я, ведь я жду тебя.


    Im confused in the second sentece. when he says "ждут шикарные" and then he says "авто", (singular) then he goes on to say "Мои золотые руки"

    did he just throw the авто inbetween "Мои золотые руки - ждут шикарные". I thought it might be about "Все мои друзья" but that is in a completely different sentence, making it нельзя.

    The best thing i can come up with is "My golden hands, they wait for the car (even though авто isn't in genitive(or does ждать even require genitive?(since you are waiting FOR someone))). anyways,

    "My smart golden hands, they wait for the car, but i won't let them, you see, i am waiting for you". ~ Which doesn't even make sense, what the heck is he talking about here, and how could i make this into a normal russian sentence?

    Isn't авто indecinable, like радио? That would make it either 'The chic cars are waiting for my golden hands, etc.' or 'my golden hands are waiting for the chic cars, etc.'
    I'd guess the first one, because the cars are waiting for his hands, but he won't let them, because he's waiting/saving them for his girl.
    Ok, still doesn't make too much sense.

    Здесь работают давно Все мои друзья. Ждут шикарные авто Мои руки золотые, Их не буду делать я, ведь я жду тебя.
    After reading it for the first time it didn't make much sence to me. I guess it is a sort of a poem :

    Здесь работают давно Все мои друзья
    Ждут шикарные авто Мои руки золотые
    Их не буду делать я, ведь я жду тебя

    Мои руки золотые - it's a kind of idiomatic expression meaning Jack of all Trades. It refers to a person who is capable of doing whatever he's asked.

    All my friends've been working here long
    I'm the only one to fix these awesome cars
    But I ain't gonna do this
    'cause I've been waiting for you only

    Something like that, roughly.....
