Blame it on the Tetons

I posted this song as a Saturday Video a few weeks back and figured it deserved a performance video, too.

Blame it on the Tetons
Yeah, I need a scapegoat now

No, my dog won't bite you
Though it had the right to

You ought to give her credit
Because she knows I would've let it happen

Blame it on the weekends
God, I need a cola now

Oh, we mumble loudly
Wear our shame so proudly

Wore our blank expressions
Trying to look interesting

Blame it all on me because
God, I need a cold one now

All them eager actors
Gladly taking credit
for the lines created

By the people tucked
away from sight

Is just a window from
the room we're bound to

If you find a way out
Oh, would you just
let me know how?

Would you just let me
know how?

Blame it on the web
But the spider's
your problem now

Language is the liquid
That we're all dissolved in

Great for solving problems
After it creates a problem

Blame it on the Tetons
God, I need a scapegoat now

Everyone's a building burning
With no one to put the fire out

Standing at the window looking out
Waiting for time to burn us down

Everyone's an ocean drowning
With no one really to show how

They might get a
little better air

If they turned themselves
into a cloud

I love "Blame it on the Tetons"! It will become the thing I say when someone I know starts complaining about something no one can fix and that includes me.

Hi Kev-
Great lyrics, great sound. :-)

So easy to blame, huh? And I am not a 'cliche' quoter too often, but as they say,

"when one points a finger three are pointing back at the self".


Love Gail
