      About "Blame It On Cain"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello - "Blame It On Cain"

      Once upon a time, I had a little money
      Government burglars took it along
      Before I could mail it to you
      Still you are the only one
      Now I can't let it slip away
      So if the man with the ticker tape, he tries to take it
      Well, this is what I'm gonna say

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

      Well, if I was a saint with a silver cup
      And the money got low, we could always heat it up
      Or trade it in
      But then the radio to heaven will be wired to your purse
      And you can run down the waveband
      Coast-to-coast, hand in hand
      Bad to worse, curse for curse
      Don't be dissatisfied, so if you're not satisfied

      [Chorus:]

      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
      Oh, but I've never been accused
      When they step on your face, then wear that good-look grin
      I gotta break out one weekend before I do somebody in
      But every single time I feel a little stronger
      They tell me it's a crime, well, how much longer?

      [Chorus:]

      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
