  • Blame the whiskey on the beer
    Blame the beer on the whiskey
    Blame the mornin' on the night
    For whose lyin' here with me
    Blame the bar for the band
    Blame the band for the song
    Blame the song for the party that went all night long

    But it ain't my fault
    No it ain't my fault
    Mighta had a little fun
    Lotta wrong I'd done
    But it ain't my fault

    Blame the heart for the hurtin'
    Blame the hurtin' on the heart
    Blame the dark on the devil
    Blame the devil on the dark
    Blame the ex for the drinkin'
    Blame the drinkin' for the ex
    Blame the two for one tequila's for whatever happens next

    But it ain't my fault
    No it ain't my fault
    Mighta had a little fun
    Lotta wrong I'd done
    But it ain't my fault

    I got my hands up
    I need an alibi
    Find me a witness who can testify
    You made a mistake
    You got the wrong guy
    I'm only guilty of a damn good time
    No it ain't my fault

    Blame my reason on my name
    Blame my name on my reason
    Blame my lack of knowing better on public education
    Blame smoke on the fire
    Blame fire on the smoke
    Blame the fight on the bouncer that couldn't take a joke
    But it ain't my fault

    I got my hands up
    I need an alibi
    Find me a witness who can testify
    You made a mistake
    You got the wrong guy
    I'm only guilty of a damn good time

    No it ain't my fault
    No it ain't my fault
    No it ain't my fault Writer/s: Jessi Leigh Alexander, John Osborne, TJ Osborne
