	 G#m7         G#m7/C# (bass, tambourine enter)
	  /  /  /  /    /  /  /  /
	 Ooh-do-do-do  Ooh-do-do-do

Verse 1 (guitars continue as above; chords indicated are composites of
	 all parts):

	       G#m9     G#m7/C#               F#maj7                    D#m
	It's a shame (sha-ame), the way you mess around with your man
	       G#m9     G#m7/C#            F#maj7    D#m
	It's a shame (sha-ame), the way you hurt me
	       G#m9     G#m7/C#               F#maj7                    D#m
	It's a shame (sha-ame), the way you mess around with your man
	           Bmaj7   B6        Bm7   Bm6
	I'm sitting all alone  by the telephone
	       G#m7                          G#m7/C#
	Waiting for your call  when you don't call at all

Verse 2:

	It's a shame (sha-ame), the way you mess around with your man
	It's a shame (sha-ame), the way you play with my emotions
	It's a shame (sha-ame), the way you mess around with your man
	You're like a child at play  on a sunny day
	But you play with love  and then you throw it away

Bridge:

	          G#m9    G#m7/C#          F#maj7   D#m
	Why do you use me         try to confuse me
	            G#m9  G#m7/C#          F#maj7   D#m
	How can you stand         to be so cruel
	              Amaj7   Dmaj7
	Why don't you free me       from this prison
                Emaj7                 G#m7   G#m7/C#
	Where I serve my time as your fool

Verse 3:

	It's a shame (sha-ame), the way you mess around with your man
	It's a shame (sha-ame), the way you hurt me
	It's a shame (sha-ame), the way you mess around with your man
	I try to stay with you  show you love so true
	But you won't appreciate  the love we try to make

[repeat first two lines of intro (two guitars w/drums)]

	Oh, it's-a got to be a shame

[repeat bridge]

Verse 4:

	Got to be a shame (sha-ame), the way you mess around with your man
	Ohhh, it's a shame (sha-ame), the way you hurt me
	It's a shame (sha-ame), the way you mess around with your man
	You've got my heart in chains  and I must complain
	I just can't be content  oh, look at (unintelligible)

Coda:

	[vocal improvisation over verse chords; fade on 4th line]
