Don’t Blame Them

Don’t blame the girl
She won’t do you wrong
The veil she wears
On her long dark hair
Mary would have done
Don’t blame the boy
He won’t do you wrong,
The fist he shakes
At the giant’s face
David would have done
Beware!
If you turn to face your fear
It will disappear
like it wasn’t there
Don’t blame them
They’re just an illusion
Why chase the ghosts outside?
Turn, see between your eyes
There stands the one you hide
So wait,
Understand the one you hate
Anger will abate
Love will moderate
Don’t blame the child, don’t blame the man
Don’t blame us and don’t blame them
Don’t blame her, and don’t blame him
Don’t blame the world and don’t blame time
Don’t blame the weather if it don’t shine
Don’t blame the sun if it makes you blind
Don’t blame the stars that you can’t touch
Don’t blame the food if you gobble too much
Don’t blame money if it don’t grow
Don’t blame the river if it don’t flow
Don’t blame the people you don’t know
Don’t blame the people who tell you to do
’Cause in the end – they’re gonna blame you!
