"Blame It on the Stones" as written by Kristoffer Kristofferson and John W. Wilkin....
Mister Marvin middle class is really in a stew
Wondering' what the younger generation's coming to
And the taste of his martini doesn't please his bitter tongue
Blame it on the rolling stones.

Blame it on the stones; blame it on the stones
You'll feel so much better, knowing you don't stand alone
Join the accusation; save the bleeding nation
Get it off your shoulders; blame it on the stones

Mother tells the ladies at the bridge club every day
Of the rising price of tranquilizers she must pay
And she wonders why the children never seem to stay at home
Blame it on the rolling stones.

Blame it on the stones; blame it on the stones
You'll feel so much better, knowing you don't stand alone
Join the accusation; save the bleeding nation
Get it off your shoulders; blame it on the stones

Father's at the office, nightly working all the time
Trying to make the secretary change her little mind
And it bothers him to read about so many broken homes
Blame it on those rolling stones.

Blame it on the stones; blame it on the stones
You'll feel so much better knowing you don't stand alone
Join the accusation; same the bleeding nation
Get it off your shoulders; blame it on the stones

Blame it on the stones, blame it on the stones.

    General CommentAbout the snobbish attitude of the middle classes towards the bad boy attitude of the Rolling Stones in the 60's, blaming everything on the new rock and roll music and bands such as the Rolling Stones

    General Commentfunny how Kris, like others outlaw countrymen such as Willie Nelson, broke the country'n'western code and watched what was happening at the time... just like the parody version he did of "okie from muskogee" where he's the devil's advocate for the hippies...
