About Shame

"Shame" is a 1977 single recorded by American singer Evelyn "Champagne" King, written by John H. Fitch, Jr. and Reuben Cross, and released by RCA Records. It was released by RCA Records as part of King's debut album, Smooth Talk. The extended remix was produced for the twelve-inch vinyl single and would later replace the album version of the song in late-1970s reprints of the album. "Shame" was successful on Billboard music charts and would become one of King's signature songs, though it varied on international music charts. The song was covered by Zhané for the 1994 film A Low Down Dirty Shame and Kim Wilde in 1996.

Shame
Burning, you keep my whole body yearning
You got me so confused
It's a shame

Sometimes I think I'm going insane
But still I wanna stay
Wrapped in your arms
Is where I wanna be, wanna be
Wrapped in your arms
That's my high, my high
Shame, ooh

My mother says you're playing a game
And what you do to me is a
Shame
Ooh, gonna love you just the same

Mama just don't understand
Wrapped in your arms
Is where I wanna be, wanna be
Wrapped in your arms
That's my high, my high

I can't get enough, ooh baby
Enough of that magic touch
Love is in my heart
Tearing the rules apart
So, why should I be ashamed
Only love can be to blame
If we lose our love it's a
Shame
Ooh, I wouldn't want to live with the pain
Gonna stay forever

Wrapped in your arms
Is where I wanna be, wanna be
Wrapped in your arms
That's my high, my high

Shame
Ooh, only love can be to blame
If we lose our love it's a
Shame
Ooh, I wouldn't wanna live with the pain
Shame

Ain't no reason for me to need to wait
Ooh, ooh it's a shame
