You gotta clean up the mess you make
You gotta put back the things you take
It's not so hard if you stop and think
And Learn From Your Mistake
Look out where you step, so you don't slip
Make sure what you owe, wont drop or drip
Your troubles will vanish, in a wink
Just Learn From Your Mistake
Doing wrong is not so bad
when it's not a thing you planned
Just be real careful everyday
and each day will turn out grand!
Be sure when you land, before you leap
You don't want to be a sorry heap
It's up to you if you swim or sink
So Learn From Your Mistake
And Learn From Your Mistake!
Just Learn From Your Mistake!
Making one mistake is not
A cause to fret or fuss
Just work real hard to put things right
Then you'll be the same as us!
Make sure when you run, that you can't
It takes common sense to reach the top
And life can be oh so rosey, think if you think (if you think)
and ya think (and ya think!)
and ya learn (and ya learn!)
To Learn From Your Mistake
