Wrong Thing, Right Then

The following are the lyrics to “Wrong Thing, Right Then”, by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Don’t know why, but this song’s been going through my head for the past couple of weeks. Despite the lyrics, this song has NOTHING to do with me or The Wife. It’s just a song I like that once meant something to me, the once self proclaimed “King of Bad Timing.” (That’s a long story in itself, one I don’t think I’ll share any time soon.)

Wrong Thing, Right Then
by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones

So here’s what happend this time,
I’m sure that it’s the last time,
I’m over going over it,
it’s over (once again).

What am I gonna do with me
I blew the opportunity
By saying something assinine.
(I’ve gotta watch this mouth of mine.)

Chorus:
I sure said the wrong thing right then
Try to forgive…
I’ll never say that again
as long as I live.

As I remember the events,
I’m trying hard to make some sense,
my mouth is my archnemisis
(You’d think that I’d be used to this).

Nothing nice to say — sticks and stones.
I blew it now and I’m all alone.
Let me take you back, I was only joking!
My mouth is shut, but my heart is broken.

Chorus:
I sure said the wrong thing right then
Try to forgive…
I’ll never say that again
as long as I live.

I sure said the wrong thing — Right then I said the wrong thing.
I sure said the wrong thing — Right then I said the wrong thing.
I sure said the wrong thing — Right then I said the wrong thing.
I sure said the wrong thing right then!

(instrumental)

I was way ahead and I should have quit.
Instead I put my foot in it.
My mouth I hold responsible.
What I need now’s a miracle.

So that’s what happend this time
No question it’s the last time.
If I get out of this, one wiff of skin
I’ll mind the mouth that got me in.

I sure said the wrong thing — Right then I said the wrong thing.
I sure said the wrong thing — Right then I said the wrong thing.

I sure said the wrong thing right then
Try to forgive.
I’ll never say that again
As long as I live.
