Preston, Billy - Isn't It A Pity Lyrics

Isn't it a pity?
Now, isn't it a shame
How we break each others hearts
And cause each other pain?

How we take each others love
Without thinking anymore
Forgetting to give back
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 fears
Their eyes can't hope to see
All the beauty that surrounds them
Lord, ain't it a pity?

Isn't it a pity?
Lord, ain't it a shame
How we break each others hearts
And cause each other pain?

We keep taking each others love
Without thinking no more
Forgetting to give back
Lord, Lord, ain't it a pity?

Forgetting to give back
Ain't it a pity?
We keep taking each others love
Oh Lord, ain't it a pity?

  1. thebeatlesenchile

    Best version of the whole show.
    "Something" takes the second position.

  2. Thales Fontanetti

    what a moving piece!

  3. Michael Scott

    Eric is possessed during his solo.

  4. Hongyuyang Guo

    Perfect version of "isnt it a pity', George must be proud of it.

  5. mjmsongs

    If that Hammond B3 solo doesn't tear you in half, you ought not claim to be a fan of music. Billy, thank you for that one. "It lifts me up when I'm feelin' down." I play that for people, and their jaws hit the floor.

  6. Rafael Valentini

    Monster Billy Preston!

  7. MrJL75

    RIP marvellous Billy Preston

    F for George

  17. RFV Yukio

    I love the way Billy Preston plays the keys at 3:13 His faces are so great. You can tell he absolutely loves playing the keys there. And he gets lost in the good vibes. Like a carefree child having fun.

  18. Don James

    tears aren't an obstruction to anything

  19. cyclopsvideo1

    So much emotion and musical goodness coming off that stage.

  20. Jamester Man

    Clapton's like the 4th best guitarist up there. Massive hubris thinking that weak solo could follow Billy's.

  21. lisa de jong

    Isin't a pity, we will nev
    er have
    Another concert like this ⚘
    Unwordable , wath luxury ⚘

  22. Dave Savage


  23. Michael Slavitch

    Damn, Billy.

  24. lisa de jong

    The most wonderful concert ⚘ that ever Heard.⚘ UNFORGATABLE⚘

  25. Enrique Aldanondo

    ¿No es una lástima?
    ¿Ahora, no es una pena?
    Cómo nos rompemos el corazón el uno al otro
    Y nos causamos dolor
    Cómo tomamos el amor el uno del otro
    Sin pensar más
    Olvidando devolverlo
    ¿No es una lástima?

    Algunas cosas llevan tanto tiempo
    Pero cómo lo explico
    Cuando no demasiadas personas
    Pueden ver que somos todos iguales
    Y debido a todas sus lágrimas
    Sus ojos no pueden esperar ver
    La belleza que les rodea
    ¿No es una lástima?.

    Qué pena
    Qué pena, pena, pena ...
    Cómo nos rompemos el corazón el uno al otro
    Y nos causamos dolor
    Cómo tomamos el amor el uno del otro
    Sin pensar más
    Olvidando devolverlo
    ¿No es una lástima?

    Olvidando devolver
    No es una pena
    Olvidando devolver
    Ahora, no es una pena

    Qué pena
    Qué lástima, lástima, lástima
    Qué pena
    Qué lástima, lástima, lástima

  28. william godoi reck

    When i fell like "man, i need to cry" i always come here.

  29. Lt Columbo

    Just blown away how much ease and dangerous playing Billy Preston did here. And he sang with George love in his heart. And Clapton solo is astounding. He was showing his deep friendship to the man he loved by playing his heart out. This is a must watch concert in your lifetime

  31. rick flood

    wow....beautiful billy preston singing George's beautiful song.....what a performance

  32. James Susanka

    Such talent playing their hearts out how fricken awesome.

  33. arik chernovski

    Billy Preston and his hammond... maybe he is really the fifth beatle .

  34. Ah! bowakawa pousse pousse

    I weep everytime. So beautiful!! To think, Paul was probably watching from backstage waiting for his "big entrance" a little uncomfortable that they used his Hey Jude melody at the end of a most beautiful George song. A song written in 1966. A song which George wrote to be released for the Beatles and they completely ignored him. Isn't it a pity alright!! I hope they stuck it to the man. I hope Paul was nervous!! He had the audacity to play on All Things Must Pass - another he and others refused to let it be on a Beatle record. RIP my Sweet George and Beautiful Billy Preston.

  35. sue springell

    Watching Dhani there gives me the chills, its just like seeing George play ❤️

  36. magical mystery tour

    That Yeah from Andy made me smile 👍

  41. Kalyan Kakarala

    Greatest guitar player or not but Mr Clapton is such a good musician in terms of conducting a show, that glance at 3.15 shows how precise and skillful he is. Love this song 🤘

  42. Dave S

    Cool 😎

  43. Miguel Pazos

    I too cry when I hear his music rendered in such a beautiful gathering. I miss the way we were and are no more.

    Five hundred bucks and a round of drinks says the Hey Jude part came from George.

  50. kurikokaleidoscope

    No time to run off the stage on this night. Clean and mean. Super work by Billy and the band.

  51. L Blue Heron

    Preach Billy!!! One of my favorites. Thank you, Dhani and Mrs. Harrision

  52. Joyce Arnold

    Dhani, I still just want wrap you up in my arms and tell you everything is gonna be alright!

  73. TroutOfOrder

    Imagine being Dhani Harrison and learning guitar from George freaking Harrison as a child

  74. Enrique García López

    would it be too ignorant to claim that George Harrison wrote more goosebumping songs than John Lennon or Paul McCartney? Anyway, that’s my take on their contribution to music. All legends, even Ringo

  87. Bien Kee

    Such a beautiful song that mirrors the genius of beloved and most underrated George Harrison as composer / musician! So aptly sang by incomparable Billy Preston!

  88. Louis Cracchiolo

    How lovely and what a pity. Lesson for all mankind found in this art. Miss you, George. Love lives on.

  100. Debra Bolton

    This concert brought tears to my eyes, to see so many talented musicians paying tribute to George Harrison. I was not a Beatles fan but came to appreciate Mr. Harrison's music when he was on his own and especially with the Traveling Wilburys. Seeing his son perform was touching.
