Alton Ellis - It's A Shame

It's a shame, the way you mess around with your man

It's a shame, the way you hurt me
It's a shame
The way you mess around with your man

You're like a child at play on a sunny day
With you play toy that you throw away

It's a shame (sha-ame)
The way you mess around with your man
It's a shame (sha-ame)
The way you play with my emotions
It's a shame (sha-ame)
The way you mess around with your man

I try to stay with you, give you love so true
You don't appreciate the love I try to make
It's a (sha-ame, oooh-oooh)
(Sha-ame, oooh-oooh)
(Sha-ame, oooh-oooh)
(Sha-ame, oooh-oooh)

It's a shame (sha-ame)
The way you mess around with your man
It's a shame (sha-ame)
The way you hurt me
It's a shame (sha-ame)
The way you mess around with your man

I try to give you love, give you love
I try to stay with you, give you love so true
You don't appreciate, the love I try to make

It's a shame (sha-ame)
Got to be a shame, the way you to hurt me, baby
Oh, got to be a shame, the way you to hurt me, ooh yes
Oh (sha-ame), the way you mess around..
