It's a pity, oh it's a shame
I caught my baby, hey hey, with another man
Oh it's a pity, ooo it's a shame
She told me she loved me
I was her only man
Why did she hurt me?
Yeah, yeah I can't understand
Ooo, it's a pity, ooo it's a shame, yeah
She took all of my money
All that I owned
She wasn't happy, hey hey
With my love alone
Ooo, it's a pity, ooo-hoo it's a shame
Wonder, can I get witness?
Wonder, can I get a witness?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Wonder can I get a witness, it's a pity
