It's A Shame Lyrics

by Bruce Springsteen

Well, I walk the way you want me to
And I've talked the way you want me to
And I've tried to do all I can just to please you

Well, I work hard every day for you
And I brought home all my pay for you
And I've cried my tears through the rain, all night and again

And oh, whoa, girl, it's a shame
Oh, whoa, girl, it's a doggone shame
I worked so hard but it's all in vain
Oh, whoa, girl, it's a shame

Now I bought you gold and diamond rings
And I brought you home your pretty things
And I thought I'd shown all the love I had for you, yes, I did

But as hard as I try it all falls through
Well, maybe I was born to be just your fool
Trying to satisfy your every desire, each need you require

Well, oh, whoa, girl, it's a shame
Oh, whoa, girl, it's a doggone shame
I worked so hard but it's all in vain
Oh, whoa, girl, it's a shame
Someone now

Oh, whoa, girl, it's a shame
Oh, girl, it's a doggone shame
We worked so hard but it's all in vain
Oh, whoa, girl, it's a shame

Oh, whoa girl, it's a shame
Oh, girl, it's a doggone shame
I worked so hard but it's all in vain
Oh, whoa, girl, it's a shame
