"Sorry, Blame It On Me" as written by Clinton Sparks, Durrone Moore and Aliaume Thiam....
As life goes on I'm starting to learn more and more about responsibility
I realize everything I do is affecting the people around me
So I want to take this time out to apologize for things I have done
And things that have not occurred yet
And the things they don't want to take responsibility for

I'm sorry for the times I left you home
I was on the road and you were alone
I'm sorry for the times that I had to go
I'm sorry for the fact that I did not know
That you were sitting home just wishing we
Could go back to when it was just you and me
I'm sorry for the times I would neglect
I'm sorry for the times I disrespect

I'm sorry for the wrong things that I've done
I'm sorry I'm not always there for my sons
I'm sorry for the fact that I'm not aware
That you can't sleep at night when I am not there
Because I am in the streets like everyday
Sorry for the things that I did not say
Like how you are the best thing in my world
And how I'm so proud to call you my girl

I understand that there are some problems
And I am not too blind to know
All the pain you kept inside you
Even though you might not show
If I can't apologize for being wrong
Then it's just a shame on me
I'll be the reason for your pain and you can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me
Said you can put the blame on me
Said you can put the blame on me
Said you can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me

Sorry for the things that he put you through
And all the times you didn't know what to do
Sorry that you had to go and sell those packs
Just trying to stay busy till you heard from Dad
And you would rather be home with all your kids
As one big family with love and bliss
And even though Pops treated us like kids

He got a second wife and you didn't agree
He got up and left you there all alone
I'm sorry that you had to do it on your own
I'm sorry that I went and added to your grief
I'm sorry that your son was once a thief
I'm sorry that I grew up way too fast
I wish I would've listened and not be so bad
I'm sorry your life turned out this way
I'm sorry that the FEDS came and took me away

I understand that there are some problems
And I am not too blind to know
All the pain you kept inside you
Even though you might not show
If I can't apologize for being wrong
Then it's just a shame on me
I'll be the reason for your pain and you can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me
Said you can put the blame on me
Said you can put the blame on me
Said you can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me

I'm sorry that it took so long to see
They were dead wrong trying to put it on me
I'm sorry that it took so long to speak
But I was on tour with Gwen Stefani
I'm sorry for the hand that she was dealt
For the embarrassment that she felt
Just a little young girl trying to have fun
Her daddy should never let her out that young
I'm sorry for Club Zen getting shut down
I hope they manage better next time around
How was I to know she was underage
In a twenty one and older club they say
Why doesn't anybody wanna take blame
Verizon backed out disgracing my name
I'm just a singer trying to entertain
Because I love my fans I'll take that blame
Even though the blame's on you
Even though the blame's on you
Even though the blame's on you
I'll take that blame from you

And you can put that blame on me
And you can put that blame on me
You can put that blame on me
And you can put that blame on me

    General Commenteven though alot of ppl think this song is only about the girl at club zen,it's not,it IS inspired by that incident but it's actually about other stuff and people too, i back that up with the very first part of lyrics, he says he wants to apologize for things hes done and things that haven’t occurred yet.
    moving on to the next part:
    first person he wants to apologize for is his wife- the mother of his children- he apologizes for leaving her home alone most of the time,apologizes for not knowing (because she was hiding it)how much that hurt her, and for neglecting and disrespecting her and finally for not being there for their sons.

    in the next part he clearly apologizes for his mother for all the things his dad made her go through,apparently his dad left them and got himself a second wife so she had to sell bags to get money even though she would rather be home with him and his siblings.and then he apologizes for the shit he (akon) made her go through(being bad and not lsning,growing up 2 fast,theft,drugs,feds,jail).

    now the final part is about deena the infamous underage girl at club zen and allll that crap that you guys already know.

    General Commentlisten all akon haters. I was a akon hater too and after I heard this song it changed my way of thinking that akon is not a bitch. i feel bad for akon because everyone is all over him and they should all just backe off he apologized for the things he did what else do u want him to do. Yes the zen club thing was bad and throwin the kid off of stage but how did he know that she was underaged it was a 21 and older club and he didnt know so dont hate him for that and dou know why he threw that kid off stage? He said something to Akon thatw as terrible what do u think he should do ignore it guys??? Akon isnt rele a bad guy hes taking the blame for everything thatwasnt rele his fault and i respect him for that. So akon haters think about this song and what it means cause this song made me change my oppioion about akon i think he is responsible now, respectful and he said hes sorry what else do u want from a guy even though the blames on u he takes the blames come on guys

    General CommentI think this song is terribly amusing. Especially since Akon is apologizing for something that wasn't his fault. Although technically, he's not apologizing. He's just saying it wasn't his fault, but he's taking the blame for it anyways. The stupid little whore shouldn't have been in a twenty-one and older club when she's not even sixteen years old. She's an idiot..

    I respect Akon for writing a song about it. I doubt another artist would've done the same thing.

    General CommentI love this song simply because he is pointing out that even though it is his fault, there are a bunch of little things that could have prevented it. Much like life.
    He is saying sorry but at the same time he's saying it's not 100% his fault.
    Love the song.:)
