It Wasn't Me

This song is by Jenny Lewis and The Watson Twins and appears on the album Rabbit Fur Coat (2006).

It wasn't me, I wasn't there

I was just watching from over here

And besides, I couldn't afford the bus fare

In Hollywood and Washington

They shake and smile through the harm they've done

But it's your little red wagon

And you've got to pull it

It'll take a lifetime to clear your name

Under the bridges of fame it's always nighttime

It wasn't me, I wasn't there

I was stone drunk, it isn't clear

And it doesn't count because I don't care

The years transform my memories

Of all the countless decades of grief

It was cut and run in '91

Put yourselves in a straightjacket

But when you plead insane

It's no cheaper than humiliation

That's free

I've gone and quit my worshipping

Of the false gods and golden sins

Because we made love in the tower of Babel

And it fell down

It wasn't me, I wasn't there

That was not my love affair

That is not my lover, that's not even my friend

It wasn't me, I wasn't there

I was stone drunk, it isn't clear

And it doesn't count, because I don't care

But I use a pop song to clear my name

Under the bridges of fame it's always nighttime

I'll end with a closer and say goodnight
