Saturday song lyrics

I've never blogged song lyrics before, but these, sent to me by Jeffrey Grimmer, reminded me of Richard Epstein:

The song is called "Effect & Cause" and it's from the White Stripes' new album Icky Thump:

Well, in every complicated situation, You're the human relation, Makin' sense of it all, Take a whole lot a concentration

Well, you can't take the effect, And make it the cause, I didn't rob a bank, Because you made up a law, When you people robbin' Peter, Don't you blame Paul, Can't take the effect, And make it the cause

I ain't the reason that you gave me no reason to return your call, You built a house of cards and got shocked when you saw them fall, Well are you sayin' I'm innocent?, In fact the reverse, But if you're headin' to the grave, You don't blame the hearse, You're like a little girl yellin' at her brother, 'Cause you lost his ball

That certainly makes "moon and June" songs attractive.

Comment Policy: We reserve the right to edit or delete comments, and in extreme cases to ban commenters, at our discretion. Comments must be relevant and civil (and, especially, free of name-calling). We think of comment threads like dinner parties at our homes. If you make the party unpleasant for us or for others, we'd rather you went elsewhere. We're happy to see a wide range of viewpoints, but we want all of them to be expressed as politely as possible.

We realize that such a comment policy can never be evenly enforced, because we can't possibly monitor every comment equally well. Hundreds of comments are posted every day here, and we don't read them all. Those we read, we read with different degrees of attention, and in different moods. We try to be fair, but we make no promises.

And remember, it's a big Internet. If you think we were mistaken in removing your post (or, in extreme cases, in removing you) -- or if you prefer a more free-for-all approach -- there are surely plenty of ways you can still get your views out.
