Cabaret Night at the Cosmic Lounge: Not My Fault

Not My Fault

 

It’s not my fault, I wasn’t there at the time

You can’t prove that I did that crime

Leave me be; oh let me be free

No, no, wait come back, don't abandon me


Everyone needs someone else to blame (ha ha!)

That's just a rule of life, this silly game

But if you try to point that finger here (well)

I’ll hit you in the face, then disappear


It's not my fault, that’s not one of my designs

I shouldn’t pay these unreasonable fines


Give me peace, and sweet release

Wait, wait, where did your go? What about my needs?


I don’t know what about this is so dang hard (honestly)

I just need all your love and all your regard


But I’ll never take, whoa, I’ll never take responsibility

It’s a perfectly sound ontology (ye-heah)


It’s not my fault, oh it’s not my fault

It’s absolutely, positively

Try it and things might get grizzly

100 percent, not my fault


[gasping for breath]


So… so what I’m saying is it's not my fault, oh... oh Board!
