I got a Brother named Thunder
another named Lightnin
my Sister's named Wind
and I'm Rain
Goin steady with a sweet
li'l warm breeze,
she's makin love like a hurricane
When the Gods of The Father
of my Mother and Me
first ate the fruit off the olive tree
The Moon raised the tide
bringin on a mudslide
Rivers leapt their banks to run free
But don't blame it on
blame it on me babe
You can blame it on my family
tree

Ain't no plausible explanation
Can't explain it away with Meteorology
When my kinfolk get in a groove
The stars and the planets start to move
'tween that Devil and the deep blue Sea
But, don't blame it on
blame it on me babe
You can blame it on my family
tree.

Now when trouble starts to brew
and your skies aren't quite so blue
Dark clouds precipitate
Winds that wail
are slingin sleet and hail
flood waters at your gate
Here come mother
better run for cover
But, don't blame it on
blame it on me babe
You can blame it on the family
tree.

You see, I'm not the one 
I'm your number nine son
I'm gonna stand by
gonna alibi
gonna run with you,
on the bye and by
 even lullaby you 
but don't blame it on
blame it on me, babe
You can blame it my family
 tree.
