Mike Oldfield – Mr. Shame lyrics

I know you're out there, Mr. Shame.
I'm calling your name, Mr. Shame.


There is no doubt,
You need to find out
About the river,
But there's no covert scheme
To help you find your dream
To the river.


Down to the river.
Was this all some cry for love?
It's a cry for love.
Down to the river.
Are you a victim of that money bug
In your blood?


[ Chorus ]

Mr. Shame. Get down to the river!
Mr. Shame. I know you ache.
Mr. Shame. So come down to the river.
The river of love. Don't hesitate.


There's no mean devise
Or key to Paradise
To the river.
No price you can pay
To help you find your way
To the river.


Down to the river.
Is this all some cry for love?
It's a cry for love.
Down to the river.
Don't tell me you're a victim of that money bug
In your blood!


[ Repeat Chorus ]

Down to the river.
Is this all some cry for love?
It's a cry for love.
Down to the river.
Don't tell me you're a victim of that money bug
In your blood!


[ Repeat Chorus ]

[ Repeat Chorus ]

[ Repeat Chorus ]

[ Repeat Chorus ]
