A song explores how women and men so often have fundamentally different perceptions of the problems that divide them.

lyrics

Blame it on Biology music and lyrics © Andrew Revkin


Blame it on biology, the difference between you and me.
Male and female boy and girl, each one sees a different world.

Blame it on biology, the difference between you and me.
Whoa girl, can’t you see, blame it on biology.


When we try to figure out, just what some fight is all about.
English is what we both speak. It may as well be French and Greek.

You stand there with that pretty pout. I’ve got no clue what’s put you out.
Finally you explain your funk. It was something that I said last month.


Blame it on biology, the difference between you and me.
Male and female boy and girl, each one sees a different world.

Blame it on biology, the difference between you and me.
Whoa girl, can’t you see, blame it on biology.

Bridge:

You say that I lack sensitivity. I defend my masculinity.
I say the facts are clear as crystal, why can’t you see that I’m right?
Then you say why can’t I see that facts have nothing to do with this fight?

The good news is that when we’re done, biology it brings us home.
I look at you. You look at me. We say, thank God for biology.

Blame it on biology, the difference between you and me.
Whoa girl, can’t you see, blame it on biology.
Whoa girl, can’t you see, blame it on biology.
