Shame

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album Whitewash (1990).

Shame, shame, on you ruthless self made man
You've loaded your ambitions upon the children of this land
And shame, shame, on your great eternal plan
It's your own diseased direction you'll get there any way you can

But we can see you now
You can't fool all the people
And we don't believe you now
You can't fool all the people all the time

Shame, shame, you see our lives a market place
We're all consumer units in your greedy little race
And shame, shame, on your vision of our life
Your friends are carved with conquest upon the handle of your knife

But we can see you now
You can't fool all the people
And we don't believe you now
You can't fool all the people all the time

Shame, shame, on your cool stock city guile
You're pressed into your business suit and you're polished to your smile
And shame, shame, on your brute dishonesty
You manipulate the numbers but don't intend to set them free

But we can see you now
You can't fool all the people
And we don't believe you now
You can't fool all the people all the time
