"Such A Shame" as written by Dolores Mary O'riordan and Noel Hogan....
Well I feel so sorry for you
You'll always be the same
'cause you're sad, you're sad
And I think you're very selfish

And you play a vicious game
'cause you're bad, you're bad
And you'll end up very lonely
And you may end up in pain
'cause you're mad, you're mad

I think you're awful
I think you're horrible
A waste of space (x2)

It's your bad behavior
But you never see

Such a shame, such a shame
You'll always be the same
I'm sickened for the mother
Who endured your pain

Such a shame, such a shame
You'll always be the same
I'm sickened for the mother
Who endured your pain

Arrogance, ignorance (x3)

I should think you're very selfish
I should think you're very sad
It's your bad behavior

I should think you're very thankless
For the things you never had
It's your bad behavior

Repeat Chorus

    General CommentIt's funny to hear a song so angry be sung so happily. It's a strange combination of light-heartedness and utter hatred. I like it. I love the phrase, "A waste of space." In my opinion, that's one of the worst things you could say about somebody...if only because you likely mean it, unlike most insults.

    General CommentI agree with this thoughts,words and people can be so stupid,selfish,cruel(including ourself) so it's good to tell them the truth about who they really are because of their behavior.
    They got to learn from their own mistakes and change,cause a change will do them good.
    This songs is for all the thankless,selfish,ignorant,cruel,bad ones that hurt the people they should cherish and love,because they don't deserve their atention and kindness.
    As I am a christian I should forgive,but I am not that perfect as God is.
    Forgivness is for the ones that change and see their mistakes of wich they're sorry for.

    I fave a friend,a male friend,mr. know-it-all.He thinks he knows best,he's always right about everything he says cause his the brightess.
    He's so good with words, but when he has to do somthing to proove he knows it he fails,but still convincin everyone that he's right and somthing else is gone wrong.
    I told him what a bestard he is and he didn't mind he even changed for a while.
    Who finds a true honest friend in this world he is surely a very lucky one,it's very hard to find if he egzists.
    So this song is made for people like him and I have nothing more to say than it's said above in the song.

    If you have a pat a cat or a dog or both thay will be always there for you and understand you more than anyone else.
    Blessed are the ones who have parents around them,a mother or a father if not both cause the people that made you can be your best friends forever.

    As for me I can be good and I can be bad,but still I will apologize if i mistaken,missunderstood,if I done somthing wrong,if I hurt someone I will trully hate myself for that.I'm proud to say I'm sorry.
