The Lyrics

Stupid arcade crane games!
Great timin' with my fingers
Should have won that prize
But I saw that raccoon plush
Fall right before my eyes
Won't waste my cash for another
Attempt, I won't be the fool
Cause I would spend all day
'Til my bank account was drained
Gotta blame it on somethin' (gotta blame it on somethin')
Gotta blame it on somethin'

Blame it on the crane that was graspin', graspin'
Blame it on the claw that vice gripped tight
On air molecules, that's where the blame is, dude
Blame it on the crane, yeah-ee-yeah-eah-eah
You can blame it on the crane

Don't say that I shouldn't worry
'Twas expected, that loss
Cause they're designed to do that
To make up for the huge cost
Ho-oh, ho-oh-ooh-wa
Draggin' that huge thing inside here
And I would agree with you
But it felt like an inch
Away from winnin' the game
Gotta blame it on somethin' (gotta blame it on somethin')
Gotta blame it on somethin'

Blame it on the crane that was grabbin', grabbin'
Blame it on the claw that tight-gripped shite
"What it's meant to do", that won't restrain my mood
Blame it on the crane, yeah-ee-yeah-eah-eah
I'm gonna blame it on the crane

Cause the crane is shite
And the crane ain't fair
You gotta blame it on somethin'

Blame it on the crane that was flailin', flailin'
Blame it on the claw, flew right on by
Missin' that raccoon, wanted to save for you
Blame it on the crane, yeah-ee-yeah-eah-eah
Oh, you can blame it on the crane

Blame it on the crane, yeah-ee-yeah-eah-eah
Blame it on the crane, yeah-ee-yeah-eah-eah
Blame it on the crane, yeah-ee-yeah (just blame it on the crane, blame it on the crane, blame it on the crane, buddy)
Blame it on the crane, yeah-ee-yeah (blame it on the claw that just tight-gripped shite, ha-ooh)
Blame it on the crane, yeah-ee-yeah (blame it, blame it on the crane)
It just seems so cruel, to fake a chance for you
Blame it on the crane, yeah-ee-yeah-eah-eah
Gotta blame it on somethin'
Gotta blame it on somethin'

Blame it on the crane that was graspin', graspin'
Blame it on the claw that just vice gripped tight
Near that damn raccoon, not on it, what a douche

My original idea was to flesh out the "Blame It on the Drain" section in Weird Al's "Plumbing Song", but that would've meant I'd have to edit his lyrics to fit the pacing of the actual song, which just felt wrong.
