What a shame, nothing seems to be going right
It seems easy to me that everything will be all right

What a shame, they always want to start a fight
Well it scares me so, I could sleep in a shelter all night

All right

What a shame, you all heard what I said
You might wake up in the morning and find your poor self dead
