SINÉAD & MARCO: "AIN'T IT A SHAME?"



Sinéad O'Connor : vocals
Marco Pirroni : guitar


The original is very anemic. It was mostly written by Keith Strickland, a queer. The only B-52 who isn't/wasn't queer is the female singer, Cindy Wilson. Her brother, Ricky Wilson, the original guitarist, died of the AIDS in 1985.

Ain't it a Shame?

By Keith Strickland, Cindy Wilson & Ricky Wilson, 1986

Flying saucers could land,
And it wouldn't make much difference to my man.
I could walk aboard and thank the Lord,
And we'll leave this damn town in seconds flat.
Check my bags and never come back.

Our love is like a fuse that's burned out.
Our love is like a fuse that's burned out.

Oh, I've been unkind, but not like you.
Ain't I ashamed of being misused?

Our love is like a fuse that's burned out.
Our love is like a fuse that's burned out.

I liked your Chevy Duster.
[* The Duster was a Plymouth car (1970–1976), not Chevrolet.]
I liked your brand-new trailer.
I liked your color TV,
But you looked at that color TV more than me,
More than me.

Our love is like a fuse that's burned out.
Our love is like a fuse that's burned out.
