The sun goes down the same as it did before
The roses die as their petals fall to the floor
The opera was always an awful bore
So don't blame me

Your poetry was never in vast supply
So if you're less than inspired, I wouldn't cry
Your broken heart is hardly the reason why
So don't blame me

You weren't as good at dancing as you evidently thought
You swear that you were charming once, I promise you were not
So if you're treated badly now, I'd scarcely be surprised
You're seen for what you really are, it's time you realized
If you feel you're finally going gray
You were a long time ago, that should make your day
Your dog was never your best friend anyway
So don't blame me

You've never thought of anything original before
So why should you be startled if you can't think anymore
And getting out of bed is now a challenge on its own
And eating's even harder, I don't care, leave me alone
I know a woman's power is undenied
And if I ruined your life I'd be filled with pride
Yet I could not harm you even if I tried
So don't, don't, don't blame me
Don't blame me

    General Commentblame is a secondary issue
    like a footnote
    has been well referenced here

    this song creates a character concerned with blame
    vindictive with disappointment
    trying to release feelings of responsibility
    for another's failure
    while simultaneously tearing down the other's value
    in an attempt the wash away the significance

    I think

    General CommentI think this song is about being left (in a relationship) for anothers ex.
    Who obviously hurt them to become an ex,whom they never got over.
    They go back to the ex,and then complain to you about how they are being treated.

    "So if you're treated badly now, I'd scarcely be surprised
    You're seen for what you really are, it's time you realized"

    and she takes the role as a friend who holds some unrequited love/bitterness over this.

    "And if I ruined your life I'd be filled with pride
    Yet I could not harm you even if I tried"

    just my interpretation.
