    Cool The Spinners - It's a Shame (1970)



    It's A Shame
    (S. Wonder/S. Wright/L. Garrett)
    As performed by the Spinners


    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

    I sit here all alone by the telephone
    Waiting for your call when you don't call at all

    It's a shame the way you mess around with your man
    It's a shame the way you play with my emotions
    It's a shame the way you mess around with your man

    You're like a child at play on a sunny day
    But you take my love and then you throw it away

    Why do you use me
    Try to confuse me
    How could you stand to be so cruel
    Why won't you free me from this prison
    While I serve my time as your fool

    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

    I tried to stay with you
    Share a love so true
    But you won't appreciate the love we try to make

    Oh it's-a got ta be a shame, uh...

    Why do you use me
    Try to confuse me
    How could you stand to be so cruel
    Why won't you free me from this prison
    While I serve my time as your fool

    Got ta be a shame the way you mess around with your man
    Oh it's a shame the way you hurt me
    Oh it's a shame, baby baby, the way you mess around with your man

    You got my heart in chains
    And I must complain
    I just can't be content
    Oh look at... (muttering) ah, haaa, ah!
    It's a shame, it's a shame the way you hurt me, yeah
    AOW!
    Got ta, got ta, got ta, got ta be a shame, oh yeah...

But when people make up stories that I don't wanna be what I am, it hurts me. It's a problem for me, okay? I can't control it. But let's reverse it. What about all the millions of people who sit out in the sun to become other than what they are?" -- Michael Jackson (1993)

    Mr. music education. lol
    In Love of Money Land(Branca,sony,mainstream media), it's always a pride and snowy day.

    And, remember when the king of pop fired John Branca?

    This joint has to be my favorite Stevie Wonder-producing-someone-else joint. Even "Let's Get Serious" ain't got nothing on this.

    Here's a track from GC Cameron, who was the lead singer on "It's A Shame". He did the Jermaine before Jermaine, lol, in that GC didn't follow the Spinners to Atlantic Records and stayed behind on Motown.
