If I start with the chorus as I progress with this song
Even though it's arse over backwards
Sometimes it pays to be wrong

When your life is in a turmoil be it sad or incomplete
No use crying over spilt milk
Think like a cat and be pleased

This is the verse this is the sound of my life
And I for one can't take it
Funny how things just go from bad to worse
It never stops until it really hurts

When your life is in a quandary be it sad or incomplete
Think of those worse off than you perhaps
Might give some kind of relief

This is the verse this is the sound of my life
And I for one can't take it
You know she's not she's all cracked up to be
You're better off without her wait and see

If I start with the chorus as I progress with this song
Even though it's arse over backwards
Sometimes it pays to be wrong
