Lyrics for Shame
By Randy Newman

Mail these lyrics to a friend


That's from the point of view of some old spider in New Orleans who throws all dignity to the wind in pursuit of some 19-year-old girl, with 19-year-old skin. I love the idea of the power that young, beautiful people have, the power to crush and maim and destroy. People with all the money in the world, all the power in the world - and some 19-year-old can rip 'em up. We can be made helpless. It amuses me enormously and yet, there's a nervous, painful quality to this song. It's a type of bad love, no doubt about it.
