Lyrics - Every Moment
IT WAS A MISTAKEby Jan Nigro © 1994 Janimation Music BMI
The math test was on Monday
so I figured I had time,
This was only Wednesday, it was five days
down the line.
My favorite show’s on Thursday
so I couldn’t study then.
On Friday I decided to go bowling with a friend.
Now Saturday was sunny, so I was outside all day,
And Sunday was the one day when
I saw my cousin Ray.
I studied Monday morning quickly just before I left,
I got to school, I took the test and I got an F!
It was a mistake. It was a mistake.
It was a mistake that I no longer intend to make.
No, I ‘m not gonna hate myself,
or blame somebody else.
I’ve got to see where I went wrong
And then you know it’s won’t be long
Till I turn that mistake....into something great!
I think my life’s gonna run a lot smoother
if I stop putting things off till the last minute!
Sue told me a secret,
made, me promise not to tell.
She made me swear a million times
I’d tell nobody else.
I promised and she told me she thought
Wayne was really cute.
She made me promise five more times,
Then five more times to boot!
I only told Vanessa, made her promise not to tell.
She told eleven friends of hers,
they promised to as well.
And so although I never meant to
cause Sue any pain,
Next day a crowd began to shout,
“ Sue’s in love with Wayne!!”
Next time a friend tells me to keep a secret,
I think I’ll keep my mouth shut ‘cause
I want to keep my friend.
My family was going out for a special treat,
A place where you pay one low price for
all that you can eat.
There was so much delicious food
and everything looked great.
Instantly I got in line and piled up my plate.
Well I had seconds, I had thirds.
I had more than enough.
When I got to the dessert bar,
well I was already stuffed.
Yes I made sure that I got more
than my money’s worth.
For one low price I got the biggest
stomachache on earth!
Just because it says “ All you can eat”
Doesn’t mean you have to eat it all - ugh!
