The White Stripes - Effect and Cause

[Verse 1]
I guess you have to have a problem
If you want to invent a contraption
First you cause a train wreck
Then they put me in traction, mmm
Well, first came an action
And then a reaction
But you can't switch 'em 'round
For your own satisfaction
Well you burnt my house down
Then got mad
At my reaction
Well in every complicated situation
Of a human relation
Makin' sense of it all
Takes a whole lotta concentration, mmm
Well you can't blame a baby
For her pregnant ma
And if there's one of these unavoidable laws
It's that you jsut can't take the effect
And make it the cause, no

[Chorus]
Well you can't take the effect
And make it the cause
I didn't rob a bank
Because you made up the law
Blame me for robbin' Peter
But don't you blame Paul
Can't take the effect
And make it the cause
