The Lyrics

The chap who provided the inspiration for this one also added "I'm glad that my cynicism could be a source of inspiration Now, if you can fit those words in, I could be heading out to buy a hat for my dinner" ..although it doesn't appear that there's a Swahili word for "cynicism", so the translation of "Nina furaha kwamba wasiwasi Wangu ni chanzo cha wahyi" will just have to be the best I can do. It even scans well enough to chant.
Nina furaha kwamba wasiwasi
Wangu ni chanzo cha wahyi

Nina furaha kwamba wasiwasi
Wangu ni chanzo cha wahyi
Wasiwasi

Kununua kofia
Kwa ajili ya
Chakula cha jioni yako

[Chant repeats]

From the time you fouled up and said "Damn it!"
Your attitude started to suck
You began the farce of "cover your arse"
And to make sure you're passing the buck
For you've only gone the one aim, here
That the culprit will never be found
When you're out of the frame
Hope the finger of blame
Will never stop, it just keeps going round

It's the Circle of Blame
It includes us all
'Cause you tried blaming me
Said it's my fault
And to my disgrace
I did much the same
In the Circle
The Circle of Blame

It's the Circle of Blame
It includes us all
Because I blamed Ian
He said it was Paul
And he blamed you
So he was completing:
Yes, the Circle
The Circle of Blame

This might prompt me to try "The Blame Game" for "The Name Game."
