Paroles It's a Shame It's a Game

Le - Par .

Out last night in my Sunday stripes
(You didn't want to know me)
At the Tuesday hop if I wear drainpipes
(You say you're gonna throw me)
The way you treat me's frightening
Strike me down like lightning

You know it's a shame
(You didn't want to know me)
It's a game
(You say you're gonna throw me)

Out of town there's a story around
(You're staying with another)
At the picture show so the rumor goes
(You've been playing with my brother)
I don't know where I'm standing
You give me such a bumpy landing

It's a shame
(You're staying with another)
It's a game
(You've been playing with my brother)

Getting a bad reaction
Chasing my girls best friend
Wonder should I walk on home
Plan a break-up or shake hands and make up again

It's a shame
It's a game
(It's a shame, it's a game)
(It's a shame, it's a game)

I was out tonight looking wild in white
(You didn't want to know me)
Tried to catch a hint on how to jive
(You didn't want to show me)
I haven't got a dogs chance
If I don't know how to hip-dance

It's a shame
(You didn't want to know me)
It's a game
(You didn't want to show me)

I really felt hip wearing my stripes, baby, it's a shame
(It's a shame, it's a game)
And I really thought my drainpipes were outta sight, yeah, it's a shame
(It's a shame, it's a game)

Well, you struck me down like lightning, baby, I didn't know what to do
(It's a shame, it's a game)
There's so many rumors about me and about you
I don't know what to do (It's a shame, it's a game)

It's a shame, I don't know what to do, baby, I need you (It's a shame, it's a game)
Oh, come on, and teach me how to hip jive
