We say

We say

we say blame the teachers
Don’t we send our young to school
To be taught the simple rules
For decent public-spirited behaviour
Do we pay such crushing rates
To have our children turned to louts
We’re sick of all this fuss
We say blame the teachers
Or the preachers
They’re all the same to us

We say blame the preachers
What right have they to shake
Their moral fingers every week
At us and call us pharisees and sinners
Let them wave their holy book
Where these thugs can take a look
We’re sick of all this fuss
We say blame the preachers
Or the police
They’re all the same to us

We say blame the police
They’re very quick to chase us
When we speed in the wrong places
Or accidentally cross the lights at red
But don’t they take their time
When there’s really been a crime
We’re sick of all this fuss
We say blame the police
Or politicians
They’re all the same to us

We say blame the politicians
They promise and they promise
When election time is on us
Sterner measures to prevent delinquency
Yet when they win their phoney war
They do nothing as before
We’re sick of all this fuss
We say blame the politicians
Or society
They’re all the same to us

We say blame society
Blame the bosses blame the workers
Blame the bankers blame the forces
Blame the doctors dentists papers – blame tv
Blame the jews united nations
Blame our neighbours friends relations
We’re sick of all this fuss
We say blame society
Or the world
But don’t blame us
