​Mistake No. 3

This song is by Culture Club and appears on the album Waking Up with the House on Fire (1984).

You can't bystand all the people
Stand them on their own
They will fall to pieces
So we watch them grow
Into strange and pretty faces
I don't know
Clutching to my lipstick traces
Watch them go

And make mistake number three, yeah
(Mistake number three)
Make mistake number three
(Mistake number three)
Make mistake number three, yeah
(Mistake number three)
Make mistake number three
(Mistake number three)

It's strange how much it changes
How they want to know
How cynical are people
That's where children go
Dragged into a conversation
They can't hold
It's so sad, but it prepares them
For the mould

And make mistake number three, yeah
(Mistake number three)
Make mistake number three
(Mistake number three)
Make mistake number three, yeah
(Mistake number three)
They make mistake number three
(Mistake number)

Why is my love
Like an ocean run dry
And why is my love
Such a struggle with life

You can't bystand all the people
Stand them on their own
They will fall to pieces
So we watch them grow
Oh

Make mistake number three, yeah
(Mistake number three)
Make mistake number three
(Mistake number three)
Make mistake number three, yeah
(Mistake number three)
Make mistake number three
You make your mistakes
(Mistake number three)

(Mistake number three)
Yeah
Mistake number three
Yeah, yeah, yeah
That's mistake number three
The mistakes you made
Mistakes you made
Mistakes
(Mistake)
Number three
Mistake
(Number three).
