Blame It on Cain

This song is by Alice Wonders and appears on the album Mod Tea Diary (2002).

This song is a cover of "Blame It on Cain" by Elvis Costello.
Once upon a time, I had a little money
Government burglars took it long
Before I could mail it to you
Still you are the only one

And I can't let it slip away
So if the man with the ticker tape
He try to take it
This is what I'm gonna say

Blame it on Cain
Don't blame it on me
Oh-oh, it's nobody's fault
But we need somebody to burn

If I was a saint with a silver cup
And the money got low
We could always heat it up
Or trade it in

The radio to heaven
Will be wired to your purse
And then you can run down the wave band
Coast to coast, hand in hand
????? For curse
Don't be dissatisfied
So you're not satisfied

Blame it on Cain
Don't blame it on me
Oh-oh, it's nobody's fault
But we need somebody to burn

I think I've lived a little too long
On the outskirts of town
I think I'm going insane
From talking to myself for so long

But I ain't never been accused
When they step upon your face
They wear that good look grin
I gotta break out one weekend
If I do somebody in

But every time
It feels a little stronger
They tell me it's a crime
Well how much longer?

Blame it on Cain
Don't blame it on me
Oh-oh, it's nobody's fault
But we need somebody to burn

Blame it on Cain
Oh-oh-oh, please don't blame it on me
It's nobody's fault
But it just seems to be his turn

Elvis Costello
