You, you've been looking at me just a little too long, now I can never look the same
Blindness and kindness, there's no difference in the two when I can no longer see the good

In you

So won't you show me a little shame
Won't you show me a little shame

Now 'cause I'm, I'm a gentleman, lookin' for a gentlewomen, so-called ladies keep breakin

My heart
Show me a house, show me a home, show me how it could all fall apart

So won't you show me a little shame
Won't you show me a little shame
Won't you show me a little shame

'Cause now I wake up in the morning more tired than before I slept
I get through crying and I'm sadder then before I wept
I get through thinking and the thoughts have left my head
I get through speaking and I can't remember not a word that I said

You change your mind so many times, I wonder if you have a mind at all
And I'd rather be by myself than to have your lonesome company come to call

So won't you show me a little shame
Won't you show me a little shame
Won't you show me a little shame
