Cardigans — Don't Blame Your Daughter (Diamonds) lyrics

Don't blame your daughter
That's just sentimental
And don't blame your mom
For all that you've done wrong
Your dad is not guilty
You came out a little faulty
And the factory closed
So you can't hold them liable
You come from an island,
You're cutting diamonds
With a rubbery knife
Your autograph is worthless
So don't send me letters
And don't mail me cash
'cause your money is no good
What's left in your matress
Is holes and lack of love left
Some hair from a horse,
And none of it is yours, man
You come from an island,
You're cutting diamonds
With a rubbery knife
And the song you sing today
Wasn't always in your head,
The words you tryin' to say
Are the ones you shouldn't 've said
They're glistenin' like diamonds,
Go out and find' em
But don't blame your daughter
Read me your tombstone,
Tell me you're sorry, fax me your will,
You owe me something still
Blood is like water
The bath that you poured me
Has drained and it's gone,
Don't blame it on your son
And the song you sing today
Wasn't always in your head,
The words you tryin' to say
Are the ones you shouldn't 've said
They're glistening like diamonds,
Go out and find'em
The world is full of diamonds
Go out and find'em
But don't blame your daughter
