  • You can't blame it on anybody
    Some things they don't last
    You can't blame it on anybody
    I thought I'd entertain you
    Let me take you to the heart of the city
    Let me misunderstand you

    Fallin' down I couldn't notice
    She had some glasses on
    Few broken bones in the process
    I try to keep my attitude

    Words of love in broken English
    They have a lonesome tone
    Didn't understand must be Italian
    Must be good looking undressed

    You can't blame it on anybody
    Some things they don't last
    You can't blame it on anybody
    I thought I'd entertain you
    Let me take you to the heart of the city
    Let me misunderstand you

    With lil' care and lil' practice
    I got to know her well
    Light baritone she sings in a choir
    With a bunch of guys out of tune

    Day is night, right is wrong
    Failure notice, I'm giving up I'm tired
    Day is night, right is wrong
    Love is all, love is evil
    Day is night, right is wrong
    Love is all, love is evil
    Day is night, right is wrong
    Obsolete, odd is even
    Failure notice, I'm giving up I'm tired
    Day is night, right is wrong
    Love is all, love is evil
    Day is night, right is wrong
    Failure notice, I'm giving up I'm tired

    You can't blame it on anybody
    Some things they don't last
    You can't blame it on anybody
    I thought I'd entertain you
    Let me take you to the heart of the city
    Let me misunderstand you Writer/s: FREDDIE D III JERKINS, KENISHA PRATT, LASHAWN AMEEN DANIELS, RODNEY ROY JERKINS
