It Isn't the Fault of the Girls.
Copyright, 1892, by Frank Harding.
Words by James Thornton. Music by Andrew Mack.
As sung by little Bonnie Thornton.

Since the days of our first parents up to the present time
We often hear in story how they first committed crime,
By taking just one apple from the garden without leave;
When Adam found he had done wrong he blamed it on to Eve.

But it wasn't the fault of the girl,
She thought she was doing quite right;
Now why didn't Adam refuse,
And not be tempted the apple to bite?
But no, he said "Don't it taste sweet?"
Never thinking through it he would fall.
He knew that the fruit was forbidden;
No, 'twas not the girl's fault, after all.

The world is full of pretty girls, there isn't any doubt,
And some of them are angels-that's until you find them out.
They coax you And they tease you, make you pay for all their fun;
But when your purse is empty with some other chap they'll run.

But it isn't the fault of the girls,
Why do you run after them so?
It's telling the same old story
That happened a long time ago.
If they make you believe that they love you
Till your brain seems to go in a whirl,
You should make them prove their affections;
No, it isn't the fault of the girls.

All women like to fascinate and charm the heart of man;
To make themselves look pretty they do ev'rything they can;
The bloom of youth is on their cheeks, it never, never fades;
Although their age is forty, they appear as dainty maids.

But it isn't the fault of the girls,
When they find that they're getting so old,
To look for a husband at forty
To take them in out of the cold.
Ere a year has gone by you observe
That false are her bright shining curls;
You should have found that out 'fore you got married-
No, it isn't the fault of the girls.
