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

        It's a [G#m9]shame (sh[G#m7/C#]a-ame), the way you me[F#maj7]ss around with your man   [D#m]
        It's a [G#m9]shame (sh[G#m7/C#]a-ame), the way you[F#maj7] hurt me  [D#m]
        It's a [G#m9]shame (sh[G#m7/C#]a-ame), the way you me[F#maj7]ss around with your man   [D#m]
        I'm sitting[Bmaj7] all alo[B6]ne  by the[Bm7] telep[Bm6]hone
        Waiting[G#m7] for your call  when you don't[G#m7/C#] 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:

        Why do you[G#m9] use me [G#m7/C#]        try to co[F#maj7]nfuse me [D#m]
        How can you [G#m9]stand [G#m7/C#]        to be so [F#maj7]cruel    [D#m]
        Why don't you [Amaj7]free me [Dmaj7]      from this prison
        Where I [Emaj7]serve my time as your [G#m7]fool   [G#m7/C#]

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)
