Verse:
Ev - er since the luck -y night I found you,  I've hung a - round you, just like a fool.
Fall - ing head and heels in love,  Like a kid out of school.
My poor heart is in an aw - ful state now,  But its too late now,  to call a halt,
So if I be - come a nui - sance,  It's all your fault!
 
Chorus:
Don't Blame Me for fall - ing in love with you,
I'm un - der your spell,  But how can I help it!  Don't Blame Me!
Can't you see when you do the things you do!
If I can't con - ceal,  the thrill that I'm feel - ing,  Don't Blame Me!
I can"t help it if that dog - goned moon a - bove,
Makes me need,  some - one like you to love!
Blame your kiss,  as sweet as a kiss can be,
And blame all your charms,  that melt in my arms but Don't Blame Me!
