Hollies It's A Shame, It's A Game Lyrics

Last updated:

(Hicks / Horton Jennings)
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)
It's a game (You say you're gonna throw me)

Out of town there's a story round
(You're staying with another)
At the picture show so the rumour 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
Chasin' 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 a shame it's a game)
Wah ooh
It's a shame, it's a game
Wah ooh

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)

Wah ooh
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, ha
(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 I don't know what to do, baby I need ya
(It's a shame, it's a game)
Oh, c'mon and teach me how to hip jive
(It's a shame, it's a game)
