Shirley And Company – Shame, Shame, Shame lyrics

Shame shame shame on you
If you can't dance too


Can't stop me now hear what I say
My feet wanna move so get out my way
I'm gonna have my say
I'm going to every discotheque
I'm gonna dance dance dance dance ooh
Till the break of day I say

Shame shame shame hey shame on you
If you can't dance too
I say shame shame shame
Shame shame shame
Shame shame on you
If you can't dance too

Don't stop the motion
If you get the notion
You can't stop the groove
Cause you just won't move
Got my sun-roof down
Got my diamonds in the back
So put on your shaky wig baby
If you don't I ain't comin' back

[Repeat chorus]

If you don't want to go
Remember one monkey don't stop no show
My body needs action ain't gonna blow
Yes I'm going out I'm going to find a dancin' man
If you really think you're fast
Try to catch me if you can
I say shame shame shame yeah shame on you
If you can't dance too

It's a shame shame shame
Shame shame shame
Shame shame on you
If you can't dance too
If you can't dance

[Repeat chorus]

Said shame said shame
Shame on you
If you can't dance too if you can't dance

    Well, clearly, this song has very deep meaning. It’ s the plaintive cry of a young child, perhaps lost in the woods, perhaps abandoned by a long lost parent… now seeking to find love and the true meaning of life… yet, ironically, finding nothing but fellow lost souls. The sad, but understandable, yearning for wealth (viz. , “ diamonds in the back”) is so indicative of a proclivity toward capitalism, is it not? But the repetitive use of “ shame, shame, shame” also suggests guilt… a sense of justice… and truth… and the american way. This is truly a song that should be studied carefully at the post-doctoral level. ;-)
