Blame the World

  • Colum Sands

    As I went down by the river what do you think I did see
    But a little fish on the river bank, and here's what he said to me
    Would you show me how to swim, for times are bad, you see
    And the water's not what it used to be, so please would you help me
    But what can I do, I'm only a man
    Blame the world not me
    Then the fish slipped into the water and to the bottom went he

    As I went over the meadow what do you think I did see
    But a blackbird hanging on to a branch and here's what he said to me
    Would you show me how to fly, for times are bad, you see
    And the air is not what it used to be, so please would you help me
    But what can I do, I'm only a man
    Blame the world not me
    Then the bird went tumbling off the branch and down to the ground fell he

    As I went into the city what do you think I did see
    But a dying man upon the ground and the name of that man was Me
    Would you show me how to live, for times are bad, you see
    And the world is not what it used to be, would somebody please help me
    But the only people who came along
    Were people who thought like me
    They blamed the world and passed me by and that was the end of me
