Lyrics:
Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See [Version (a)]:

from February 14 2003 version

If you really want to party with me
Put your hands where my eyes can see
Straight butter wild and the place to be
If you really want to party with me

If you really want to party with me
Put your hands where my eyes can see
Straight butter wild and the place to be
If you really want to party with me
 
The Song:

"Put Your Hands..." was a big hit song by rapper Busta Rhymes, and was on his 1997 album When Disaster Strikes.

Beck has done the song in 3 different ways on stage, never a real full cover, but still a joy.

First, midway through the Midnite Vultures tour, Beck and his Unit began playing a bit of this Busta Rhymes hit at the beginning of their shows. Not really a full cover, but they would jam on a variation of the chorus/riff for a minute or two, as a sort of light and funky introduction to the concert.

In 2003, Beck and his group took to playing "Funk," a medley of funky hiphop/pop songs, a few of which included "Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See."

In 2006 at a very small club show, Beck snuck a little of the song into "Black Tambourine."

Then in 2014-2015, on Morning Phase tours, Beck would often perform "Hell Yes," but in its more electronic "Ghettochip Malfunction" arrangement. Somehow, the arrangement naturally includes a middle section... which almost always heard Beck and his band jam on "Put Your Hands" a bit. It was fun! Though perhaps Beck needs some more modern rap references haha.
