Back to Shame On You lyrics

Shame On You

My friends they wash the windows
And they shine in the sun
They tell me wake up early in the morning sometime
See what a beautiful job we've done

I say let's put on some tunes
Sing a long and do little all day
Go down to the riverside, take off our shoes
And wash these sins away

And the river said
"La, la, la"
It said
"Shame on you"
And the river said
"La, la, la"
It said
"Shame on you"

I go down to Chicano City Park
'Cause it makes me feel so fine
And when the weeds go down you can see up close
In the dead of the winter time

But when the summer comes everything's in bloom
And you wouldn't know it's there
And the white folks like to pretend it's not
But their music's in the air

And you can hear 'em singing
"La, la, la"
They said
"Shame on you"
You can feel 'em dancing
"La, la, la"
They said
"Shame on you"

My friend Tanner, she says you know
Me and Jesus we're of the same heart
The only thing that keeps us distant
Is that I keep fuckin' up

I said come on down to Chicano City Park
And wash your blues away
The beautiful ladies walk right by
You know I never know what to say

And they'll be singing
"Ooh, la, la, la, la, la, la, la"
"Shame on you"
And they'll be dancing
"La, la, la, la"
They said
"Shame on you"
"Shame on you"

Let's go road block trippin' in the middle of the night
Up in Gainesville town
There'll be blue lights flashin' down the long dirt road
When they ask me to step out

They say we've been looking for illegal immigrants
Can we check your car?
I say you know it's funny
I think we were on the same boat back in 1694

And I said, "Hey, hey
Ooh, la, la, la, la, la, la, la"
"Shame on you"
They'll be dancing
"La, la, la"
I said
"Shame on you"

I said
"Ooh, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la"
"Shame on you"
"Shame on you, la, la"
"La, la, la, la, la, shame on you"

I said, I said
"La, la, la, shame on you"
I'll be dancing
And they'll be singing
"La, la, la", I said
"Shame on you"
"Shame on you"

(Road block trippin in the middle of the night)
(Gainesville town)
(Blue lights flashin down the long dirt road)
