about

A Chandler home demo of this song with lyrics by David Greenberger

lyrics

Had a little fight, but it was just a spat
Then she packed her bags and departed
The pain in my heart is almost gone now
But at the time it really smarted

chorus: You understand, of course, that this was
Through no fault of my own
(You understand, of course, that this was
Through no fault of his own)

Out the door with a suitcase in each hand
With those heavy bags she swayed
She said she had to go but I think she could've
And maybe even should've stayed

(chorus)

But it was not my fault- no I never lost control
No it was not my fault- could you run that up the flagpole?
Check the brakes and check the baby
Watch your manners, act your age
No matter how it's plugged
Something always slips down the drain

Left the barn door open while I took a nap
Dreamt of Hollywood for an hour
When I awoke - no joke
The livestock was in power

(chorus)

She called me from a phone booth who knows where
To ask me if I'd like to apologize
Pondered momentarily then said
These words, not so wise:

It was not my fault- no I never lost control
No it was not my fault- could you run that up the flagpole?
Check the brakes, check the baby
Watch your manners, act your age
No matter how it's plugged
Something always slips down the drain

Not my fault- no, you can't pin this on me
Not my fault- not as far as I can see
Not my fault (he's not responsible) (repeat)
