Everybody likes you
Because you got that special way
You shimmer and you shine
And you drop the ball sometimes
But that's a small price to pay

I don't mean to speak in riddles
I'm just trying to make you see
And so true are all my words
As the Gospel of the Church
And they will sting you like a bee

Shame on you
For bringing this to my attention
And I know this hurts you so
But I just had to let you know
Don't shoot the messenger

Know that I will give up everything
To make a brand new start
Baby, sticks and stones
Will never break my bones
This is going to break my heart

She said, shame on you
For bringing this to my attention
And I know this hurts you so
But I just had to let you know
Don't shoot the messenger

She said, shame on you
For bringing this to my attention
And I know it hurts you so
But I just had to let you know
Don't shoot the messenger

I can walk on water
Or turn it into wine
But I can't tell you this
That every single little kiss
A taste of trouble you might find

She said, shame on you
For bringing this to my attention
And I know it hurts you so
But I just had to let you know
Don't shoot the messenger

She said, shame on you
For bringing this to my attention
And I know it hurts you so
But I just had to let you know
Don't shoot the messenger

She said, shame on you
For bringing this to my attention
And I know it hurts you so
