Everybody has the right to be wrong at least once

Everybody has the right to be dunce-like, once-like

Not being too smart is, is no disgrace

What sets you apart is smilin' with egg on your face

 

Its naive to make believe that you're right, it's not bright

Only fools go walking on thin ice, twice

 

You and life can skip the strife and you'll both get along

All it takes is simply saying you're wrong when you're wrong

And everybody has the right to be wrong

 

<brief musical interlude>

 

You and life can skip the strife and you'll both get along

All it takes is simply sayin' you're wrong when you're wrong

And everybody has the right to be

It can be a real delight to be

And I'd fight, fight for the right to be wrong

<SPOKEN> "At least once!!">
