Everybody makes mistakes
Everybody has those days

One, two, three, four!
Everybody makes mistakes
Everybody has those days
Everybody knows what, what I'm talking bout
Everybody gets that way

Everybody makes mistakes
Everybody has those days
Everybody knows what, what I'm talking bout
Everybody gets that way
Yeah!

Sometimes I'm in a jam
I've gotta make a plan
It might be crazy
I do it anyway
No way to know for sure
I'll figure out a cure
I'm patching up the holes
But then it overflows
If I'm not doing to well
Why be so hard on myself?

Nobody's perfect, I gotta work it
Again and again 'til I get it right
Nobody's perfect, you live and you learn it
And if I mess it up sometimes
Nobody's perfect

Sometimes I work a scheme
But then it flips on me
Doesn't turn out how I planned
Get stuck in quick sand
But no problem can't be solved
Once I get involved
I try to be delicate
Then crash right into it
Though my intentions are good
Yeah yeah yeah
Sometimes just misunderstood

Nobody's perfect, I gotta work it,
Work it

Again and again 'til I get it right
Nobody's perfect, you live and you learn it
And if I mess me up sometimes
Nobody's perfect, I gotta work it
I know in time I'll find the way
Nobody's perfect

Sometimes I fix things up
And they fall apart again
Nobody's perfect,
I might mix things up
But I always get it right in the end

[Spoken]
You know I do

[Spoken]
Next time you feel like it's just one of those days
When you just can't seem to win
If things don't turn out the way you planned,
Figure something else out!
Don't stay down, try again

[Sung]
Yeah!
Everybody makes mistakes, everybody has those days that's right
Everybody knows what, what I'm talking bout
Everybody gets that way woo
Everybody makes mistakes, everybody has those days
Everybody knows what, what I'm talking bout
Everybody gets that way

Nobody's perfect, I gotta work it
Again and again 'til I get it right
Nobody's perfect, you live and you learn it
And if I mess it up sometimes
Nobody's perfect, I gotta work it
I know in time I'll find the way
Nobody's perfect, you live and you learn it
'Cause everybody makes mistakes
Nobody's perfect
Nobody's... perfect
No no
Nobody's perfect

    Hannah Montana is basically just trying to tell us , that nobody is perfect. She is explaining to us that we can always get back up if you fall down.

    Really! Nobody is perfect! I think this is a message from Miley and Hannah to all of her fans. Maybe she knows that some of her fans are proud of themselves. When she sings this in the concert, I like it. And I love this song too!

    You rock, Miley!

    The message of the song is basically nobody's perfect. We're all humans. We make mistakes. Don't be down because you can't do everything perfect. God created us equally. Keep your head in the game! You can always get back up if you fall down. Love who you are. We're all dots.

    The meaning of the song is... simply... nobody's perfect. You think that you're the greatest person in the whole world? Well for your COMPLETE information you're just a DOT. We all are dots. God created us equally. Miley's right. Nobody's perfect.

    Thanks Miley!
