ASHAMED
by Al Rose and Maury Smith © Wheel See Music (ASCAP)

 

The world owes you everything

You owe the world change

The world pulled a quick one while you turned and walked away

Now there's nothing spinning 'round

And that sun ain't going down

There's a reason that it's hotter

It don't matter who's to blame


You should be ashamed of this world 

You should be ashamed

You should be ashamed 

Of this world 


You gathered up the nickels

And you put 'em in your pouch

You kept the motor running while you dozed off on the couch

The world owes you nothing

And it's nothing that you'll get

And from nothing, double nothing

Double crossing every bet


I've been running all the numbers

And there's nowhere left to go

This world is a landmine 

Step lightly through the cold

Now we're going out in style

With a righteous stainless smile

And the dogs continue barking as we stroll another mile


You should be ashamed of this world 

You should be ashamed 

You should be ashamed 

Of this world
