I Said the Wrong Thing


( 1997 Walter Farmer)
Get MP3 Audio File

Now sometimes I think
There's something wrong with my brain
Because words come out a my mouth that
I just can't explain
Listen real close and you'll see what I mean
You can sure get in trouble by sayin' the wrong thing

I'd had one too many down at Dusty's Bar None
The crowd was quiet thought I'd have some fun
Held up fifty dollars and a quart of cold beer
And said I'll whoop any pantywaist there is around here
Now as I spoke I felt this imminent doom
Then big bad John stepped out of the men's room
He said I'll take your bet
I'm gonna pound your brain
I said wait a minute mister please let me explain
I said the wrong thing
Give me a chance
I said the wrong thing
I just messed in my pants
I said the wrong thing
Before this gets out of hand
I'll take the money but
You can have the beer
Now step aside people I'm out a here
I said the wrong thing

A few days later I eyed from afar
A sweet young thing settin' there at the bar
You come here often She said maybe I do
But what I'd really like is to spend the night with you
Now my jaw went slack and I couldn't believe
I was dreamin' of a night filled with ecstasies
Then someone hallerd from across the room
Hey there's a man underneath all that makeup and perfume
I said the wrong thing
Sorry gotta go
I said the wrong thing
Well I just didn't know
I said the wrong thing
I sure hope you understand
Sorry there feller but you're not my type
Somebody else will have to accompany you tonight
I said the wrong thing

Well that's my story
And I think you'll agree
You can sure get in trouble by sayin' the wrong thing
Better think twice before you utter a sound
Or sooner or later friend I know that you're bound to say
The wrong thing
Well here I go again
I said the wrong thing
I'm sure sorry about that friend
I said the wrong thing
I sure hope you understand
The things I said about her weren't very nice
I just didn't know that the lady was your wife
I said the wrong thing

I said the wrong thing
Gota go Bob
I said the wrong thing
Here comes a lynch mob
I said the wrong thing
I'll see you
I said the wrong thing
I said the wrong thing
