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 gotta 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 'cause 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're pleading
Saying it's no cheaper than humiliation
That's free
I've gone and quit my worshipping
Of the false gods and golden sins
'cause 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, 'cause 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
