Blame Delilah

lyrics

I blame Delilah when I can’t get to sleep
I blame Delilah when there’s nothing on TV
I blame Delilah for every gray hair
I blame Delilah ‘cause Delilah won’t care
I blame Delilah for the blood in my coffee cup
I blame Delilah when enough is enough
But it’s really not her fault

I blame Delilah when I can’t stay awake
I blame Delilah when I can’t catch a break
I blame Delilah for the cracks in the stair
I blame Delilah ‘cause Delilah’s not here
I blame Delilah when I can’t come around
I blame Delilah when I tear myself down
But I know it’s all my…

I blame Delilah for the hole in my mouth
I blame Delilah when I can’t cut it out
I paid Delilah for a stroke and a smoker’s cough
I hate her because she won’t miss me at all
But it’s really not her fault
