Shame, shame on you
Shame, shame on you
Took my heart as a token
When returned it was broken
Hide your face
Shame on you

Shame, shame on you
Shame, shame on you
Took my car and my money
Tell you girl that ain't funny
Darn your hide
Shame on you

Shame, shame on you
Shame, shame on you
Ran around with other guys
And tried to lie when I got wise
Foolish girl
Shame on you

Shame, shame on you
Shame, shame on you
Take and play your little game
You'll find out who was to blame
Hide your face
Shame on you

Shame, shame on you
Shame, shame on you
Can you hold your head up high
Look your friends right in the eye
No you can't
Shame on you

— Spade Cooley, "Shame On You."
Popularized by Eddy Arnold.

I think that the "Hide your face" line
was a stroke of genius.
