1. A single failure,        a little slip,

                   Am        - G             Am  - G

    a misdemeanour,        a little trip.

                           Am            - G                   Am   - G

    Does this condemn me ?       Lock me away !

                       Am         G              Am                        G

    Before you turn the key, I have one more thing to say,

F                    G        - F                     G

    to make amends,        maybe be friends.

 

A                                D           Bm

    Everybody gets a second chance,

       D         E                         A  E

the circumstance to say I'm sorry.

2. A little stumble,        a little fall,

                    Am      - G                   Am  - G

    inconsequential,         nothing at all.

                             Am           - G                     Am  - G

    Now there was someone,        I heard him say,

                  Am          G      Am                      G

    that the best laid plans sometimes go astray.

F                            G      - F                G

    So don't be surprised       if I offer you no alibis.
