Lyrics

Isn't it a pity
Now, isn't it a shame
How we break each other's hearts
And cause each other pain
How we take each other's love
Without thinking anymore
Forgetting to give back
Oh, isn't it a pity

Some things take so long
But how can I explain
When not too very many people
Can see we're all the same
And because of all their tears
Their eyes can't hope to see
All the beauty that surrounds them
Oh, ain't it a pity

Isn't it a pity
ain’t it a shame
How we break each other's hearts
And cause each other pain
We keep taking each other's love
Without thinking no more
Forgetting to give back
Lord, ain’t it a pity

Forgetting to give back
Ain’t it a pity
We keep taking each other’s love
Oh, Lord, Lord ain't it a pity
