The Lyrics

Driving in the car. This song comes on. Somehow, my brain links this with my high school junior year honor's English class. BLAMMO! Inspiration strikes!
She had his heart
But the lovers were worlds apart
May be a holy man
But she still made it hard
Baby layin’ in the crib
Don’t know who the father is
And that's when you need him there
’Cause you’ve got enough shame to share
Because

[Chorus of outraged townsfolk]
As your life shows, you’ve sinned together
Told you you’ll have shame forever
Even though you thought your last marriage ends
Took an oath, shoulda never made love again
Now we should shame her more than ever
Give her something that says it better
You can live under this scarlet letter
You can live under this scarlet letter
Letter, letter, A, A, A
Under that scarlet letter
Letter, letter, A, A, A
Under that scarlet letter
Letter, letter, A, A, A
Under that scarlet letter,
Letter, letter, A, A, A
A, A-A

Behind the scenes, Dimmesdale should be coming clean
He’s part of a family, despite the iniquity
Chillingsworth will play his part
Cause the world dealt him bad cards
Since his hand is hard, he’s working to break their hearts
Because

[Chorus- sung by Chillingsworth]
As her life shows, she sinned together
I tell ya, I thought I knew her better
She said she would always be my friend
But she’s not, so I’m plotting out my revenge
Now that they’ve shamed her more than ever
Mr Dimmesdale thinks that he’s clever
I know he’s hiding his scarlet letter
I know he’s hiding his scarlet letter
Letter, letter, A, A, A
Hiding his scarlet letter
Letter, letter, A, A, A
Hiding his scarlet letter
Letter, letter, A, A, A
Hiding his scarlet letter,
Letter, letter, A, A, A
A, A-A

(sung by Dimmesdale)
Ran into another’s arms
It's okay, so what’s the harm?
A-dul-tery
There's no way to ever clean our love
They are calling her a whore
I can’t take it anymore!
Because

As the sun shines, we’ll stand together
Bond that we have, no man can sever
Since she can really use a friend
Had enough, so I’m coming clean in the end
Now that you’re calling her a baddy
Know that I’m her baby’s daddy
We will live under this scarlet letter
We will live under this scarlet letter
Letter, letter, A, A, A
Under this scarlet letter
Letter, letter, A, A, A
Under this scarlet letter
Letter, letter, A, A, A
Under this scarlet letter,
Letter, letter, A, A, A
A, A-A


They’re shaming! (shaming!)
Ooh baby they’re shaming! (shaming!)
Baby’s iniquity!
Ignominy!
They’re shaming! (shaming!)
Oh baby they’re shaming! (shaming!)
