Shame and Scandal  

Chorus:
[G]Whoa, mis\'[C]ry. [G]Shame and scandal in the [C]family.
[G]Whoa, mis\'[C]ry. [G]Shame and scandal in the [C]family.

Ja[C]maica, there was a [G]family,
With much confusion as [C]you will see.
Was a momma and a papa and a [G]boy who was grown,
Who wanted to marry and a [C]wife of his own.
He found a young girl who [G]suited him nice.
So he went to his papa to [C]ask his advice.
The papa said, \"Son, I [G]have to say no.
That girl is your sister but your momma [G7]don\'t [C]know.\"

Chorus

So the [C]week went by and the [G]son came down,
and soon the best cook in the [C]island they found.
He went to his papa to [G]name the day.
The papa turned to him and to [C]him he did say,
\"You can\'t marry this girl, I [G]have to say no.
That girl is your sister but your momma [G7]don\'t [C]know.\"

Chorus

So he [C]went to his mama and [G]covered his head.
He told his mama what his [C]papa had said.
His mama she laughed she said, [G]\"Go man go.
Your daddy ain\'t your daddy but your daddy [G7]don\'t [C]know.\"

Repeat chorus twice and fade.
