Get It Right Next Time

In the style of

Gerry Rafferty

Lyrics

out on the street
i was talkin' to a man
he said
there's so much
of this life of mine
that i don't
understand

you shouldn't worry
i said
that ain't no crime
'cause if you
get it wrong
you'll get it right
next time next time

you need direction
yeah you need a name
when you're standin'
in the crossroads
every highway
looks the same

after a while
you get
to recognize
the signs
so if you
get it wrong
you'll get it right
next time next time

life is a liar
yeah life is a cheat
it'll lead you on
and pull the ground
from underneath
your feet

no use complainin'
don't you worry
don't you whine
'cause if you
get it wrong
you'll get it right
next time next time

you gotta grow
you've gotta learn
by your mistakes
you gotta die
a little every day
just to try
and stay awake

when you believe
there's no mountain
you can climb
and if you
get it wrong
you'll get it right
next time next time
next time mm hmm
