It Was A Mistake
Jan Nigro

This song is available on Vitamin L's Every Moment!


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 out 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!
