VERSE 1

he’s got looks that books

take pages to tell

he’s got a face

to make you fall on your knees

he’s got money in the bank

to thank

and I guess

you could think he’s living at ease

PRECHORUS 1

like lovers

on the open shore

what’s the matter?

when you’re sitting there

with so much more

what’s the matter?

when you’re wondering

what the hell to be

are you wishing

you were ugly like me?

CHORUS 1

blame it on the girls

who know what to do

blame it on the boys

who keep hitting on you

blame it on your mother

for the things she said

you’d blame it on your father

but you know he’s dead

CHORUS TAG 1

blame it on the girls

blame it on the boys

blame it on the girls

blame it on the boys

VERSE 2

life could be simple

but you never fail

to complicate it every single time

you could have children and a wife

a perfect little life

but you blow it on a bottle of wine

PRECORUS 2

like a baby

or a stubborn child

what’s the matter

always looking

for an axe to grind

what’s the matter

while your wondering

what the hell to do

we are wishing

we were lucky like you

CHORUS 2

blame it on the girls

who know what to do

blame it on the boys

who keep hitting on you

blame it on your mother

for the things she said

you’d blame it on your father

but you know he’s dead

CHORUS TAG 2

blame it on the girls

blame it on the boys

blame it on the girls

blame it on the boys
