Make No Mistake

 

Make No Mistake

I used to think I had it made.
I was highly prized and highly paid.
I used to think I had it all.
Fortune came whenever I would call.
I had fast cars, fast women, too.
There was nothing that I couldn’t do.
I ruled the sky.
There was no one more like God than I.

But then I made this big mistake.
My perfect world began to reel and shake.
My only hope was that no one
Would realise what I had gone and done.
But then they did. They found me out.
I’ve got nothing to complain about.
I was at fault.
All at once, my life came to a halt.

Make no mistake, now, people.
If you know what’s good for you,
You best make no mistake.
Make no mistake, now, people.
Not if you are someone who
Doesn’t like to give themselves a break.

I quit my job, my family, too.
I couldn’t stand the thought that they all knew.
My friends all struck a soothing tone.
All I wanted was to be alone.
So now I sit beside a lake
And think about the next move I should make.
I feel so down.
I think I’ll wade into the lake and drown.

Make no mistake, now, people.
If you know what’s good for you,
You best make no mistake.
Make no mistake, now, people.
Not if you are someone who
Doesn’t like to give themselves a break.

Make no mistake,
Or, if you do,
Make sure at least
You’re kind to you.

Make no mistake, now, people.
If you know what’s good for you,
You best make no mistake.
Make no mistake, now, people.
Not if you are someone who
Doesn’t like to give themselves a break.
I never liked to give myself a break.
You should always give yourself a break.
Make no mistake and give yourself a break.
