The Hollies

The Hollies are an English pop group formed in Manchester in the early 1960s, although the majority of the band members came from towns in East Lancashire. Known for their distinctive vocal harmony style, they became one of the leading British groups of the 1960s and early 1970s. They enjoyed considerable popularity in many countries, although they did not achieve major US chart success until 1966. They had 30 charting singles on the UK Singles Chart, and 21 on the Billboard Hot 100, with songs including, "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother", "Carrie Anne", "Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress" and "The Air That I Breathe". more »

Out last night in my Sunday stripes
(You didn't want to know me)
At the Tuesday hop if I wear drainpipes
(You say you're gonna throw me)
The way you treat me's frightening
Strike me down like lightning

You know it's a shame
(You didn't want to know me)
It's a game
(You say you're gonna throw me)

Out of town there's a story around
(You're staying with another)
At the picture show so the rumor goes
(You've been playing with my brother)
I don't know where I'm standing
You give me such a bumpy landing

It's a shame
(You're staying with another)
It's a game
(You've been playing with my brother)

Getting a bad reaction
Chasing my girls best friend
Wonder should I walk on home
Plan a break-up or shake hands and make up again

It's a shame
It's a game
(It's a shame, it's a game)
(It's a shame, it's a game)

I was out tonight looking wild in white
(You didn't want to know me)
Tried to catch a hint on how to jive
(You didn't want to show me)
I haven't got a dogs chance
If I don't know how to hip-dance

It's a shame
(You didn't want to know me)
It's a game
(You didn't want to show me)

I really felt hip wearing my stripes, baby, it's a shame
(It's a shame, it's a game)
And I really thought my drainpipes were outta sight, yeah, it's a shame
(It's a shame, it's a game)

Well, you struck me down like lightning, baby, I didn't know what to do
(It's a shame, it's a game)
There's so many rumors about me and about you 
I don't know what to do (It's a shame, it's a game)

It's a shame, I don't know what to do, baby, I need you (It's a shame, it's a game)
Oh, come on, and teach me how to hip jive
