Mr. Guilty

This song is by Loudon Wainwright III and appears on the album Unrequited (1975) and on the album Final Exam (1978).

Call me Mr Guilty, Mr Guilty that's my name
Without a doubt it's all my fault, I'm the one to blame
You say that you're unhappy I do believe it's true
'Cause I'm the one, the no good bum
That did it all to you.

I'm so sorry, sorry as a man can be
I'm so guilty, this is my apology
You have been a victim, a pawn in my cruel game
I done you wrong, and I strung you along
And now I'm full of shame
To compensate for damage done
Well there's not much I can do
So I sit and drink and I sit and think
Of all I done to you

You're a martyr, taking all this time
I'm a villan, guilty of a dreadful crime, cry me a river
All your tears and logic, you know they
Finally made me see
I deserve the shame, I deserve the blame
The guilt belongs to me, yes you're innocent
You're as pure as driven snow
You've been had, I'm a cad, at least at last I know
