about

It took me five years to discover that a potential musical soul mate in the body of Robbie Melville was living right down the road from me here in the tiny town of Trentham, Victoria. My truest, most free musical expression of the last two years has happened in the corners of unassuming places and in the company of his playfully wielded guitar. This is a tribute to the great early 20th century Broadway musical composers that I love.

lyrics

Blame it on Rodgers and Hart

Blame it on Rodgers and Hart
Three notes and then the violins start
Two chords to weave a reverie
With just a melody
You took advantage 

and bewitched me 
With that old guitar
Brought magic to this flea bitten bar
You handed me the moon and stars
Don't know what time it was
But now I'm yours because 

Your song is like a silken spiders lair
Though I'm trapped I'm well aware
While the musics lasts I've lost the will to care

All yours
To delight or discard
Enslaved to a romantic facade
I've lost this game, you hold every card
And I blame it on Rodgers and Hart

My heart is like an open window pane
To your lonely blue refrain
Now I'm reeling like I'm drowning in champagne

Take care with your dangerous art
I've fallen now I'm falling apart
When I'm alone the lonely will start
And I'll blame it on Rodgers and Hart
