Losing Cause

Music and lyrics ©2017 by Lawrence Mark Lesser

I stopped buyin’ ice cream when I saw the charts:
The sales align with attacks by sharks!
And I’d go to my doctor, but won’t anymore:
His patients look sickly leavin’ his door! 
Correlation information never gave me pause:
I treat it like causation – just ‘cause!

TVs per household aligns with length of life,
So I filled my rooms with that blue TV light! 
Number of cops and crimes directly correlate,
So the crew in blue we should eliminate!  
Correlation information confounds me and my flaws:
I treat it like causation –  just ‘cause!

Before this song, my world was causation;
But I was wrong, it was guilt by association!
So I claim my song helped -- well, maybe
