G#m7 G#m7/C# (bass, tambourine enter)
	 Ooh-do-do-do  Ooh-do-do-do


Verse 1 (guitars continue as above; chords indicated are composites of
all parts):

 G#m9G#m7/C#F#maj7D#m
        It's a shame (sha-ame), the way you mess around with your man    
 G#m9G#m7/C#F#maj7D#m
        It's a shame (sha-ame), the way you hurt me   
 G#m9G#m7/C#F#maj7D#m
        It's a shame (sha-ame), the way you mess around with your man    
 Bmaj7B6Bm7Bm6
        I'm sitting all alone  by the telephone
 G#m7G#m7/C#
        Waiting for your call  when you don't call at all

Verse 2:

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

Bridge:

 G#m9G#m7/C#F#maj7D#m
        Why do you use me         try to confuse me  
 G#m9G#m7/C#F#maj7D#m
        How can you stand         to be so cruel     
 Amaj7Dmaj7
        Why don't you free me       from this prison
 Emaj7G#m7G#m7/C#
        Where I serve my time as your fool    

Verse 3:

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 stay with you show you love so true
But you won't appreciate the love we try to make

(repeat first two lines of intro (two guitars w/drums))

Oh, it's-a got to be a shame

(repeat bridge)

Verse 4:

Got to be a shame (sha-ame), the way you mess around with your man
Ohhh, 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
You've got my heart in chains and I must complain
I just can't be content oh, look at (unintelligible)

Coda:

(vocal improvisation over verse chords; fade on 4th line)
