Gene Chandler & Jerry Butler – You Just Can't Win (By Making The Same Mistake) lyrics

(Ooh, ooh... Over and over again)

Oh, when am I gonna realize
Can't bet my heart every time it cries
The things you never expect
That cause so much regret

I could have been much further today
If I had learned from my mistake
Like a stubborn child
I wouldn't use my head
Remember what the old folks said

Oh, you just can't win
By making that same mistake
Oh, Lord, you just can't win
By making that same mistake

I need to tell you
Over and over again
Hallelujah
Over and over again

When I think I'm over the hill
Something happens to kill the will
The things that I enjoy
Seems always be destroyed

Jerry, I bit off more than I can chew
Depending on someone to see me through
Mama said the blind can't lead the blind
Son, always keep this in mind

Oh, you just can't win
By making that same mistake
Say it again, you just can't win
By making that same mistake

Oh, no
Over and over again
Hallelujah
Over and over again
Well, well, well

If a boxer telegraphs his punch
Or a fly when he catches lunch
The element of surprise
Make a whole lot of people realize

Sometimes you find that you're in a pinch
Some games are won by the inch
The motto of the living man is
Don't make that same mistake

Oh, you just can't win
By making that same mistake
Say it again, you just can't win
By making that same mistake

Hey, Lord
Over and over again
Hallelujah
Over and over again

Take it home
You just can't win
By making that same mistake
You just can't win
By making that same mistake...
