How do I manage to get it all wrong?
When I have thought over this conversation for so long?
I open my mouth and the words sound so unfamiliar,
These aren’t the words I had rehearsed for you to hear,
You’d think that maybe I’d be better off just saying a polite “Hi!”
But you know I’d goof it up too, no matter how hard I try,
I have made a fool of myself and how,
I’m gonna shut up and not say a word…starting now!
