- 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
