Donovan – Cryin' Shame lyrics

Food in abundance, beggars and banks,
God in His Heaven and His priests in tanks.
Gold in the misery, sewer in the mind,
Greed and corruption of every kind.
They all know it's a cryin' shame
To turn your head, look away again.
They all know it's a cryin' shame
To turn your head, look away again.
They all know it's a cryin' shame
To turn their heads, look away again.
Fools in the Parliament, pollution in the stream,
T.V., poverty and the big bad dream.
Sex in the cinema, fear in the school,
Censorship committees, they rule/we're cool.
Don't they all know it's a cryin' shame
To turn your heads, look away again.
Don't they all know it's a cryin' shame
To turn your heads, look away again.
Don't they all know it's a cryin' shame
To turn their heads, look away again.
Don't they all know it's a cryin' shame
To turn your heads, look away again.
Composure in the little pill, courage in the beer,
Mummy and daddy and the life of fear.
Human relationships cast away,
I hope we get together one of these days.
And they all know it's a cryin' shame
To turn their heads, look away again.
Don't they all know it's a cryin' shame
To turn their heads, look away again.
