From the recording Three Tequila Floor

Lyrics

VERSE
We were moving along – wind in our sails
Riding waves along the way
But then last week we went straight off the rails
When what I said did not make your day

PRE-CHORUS
Now I guess…

CHORUS
(Yes) I put the empha’sis on the wrong sylla’ble
And I think you found that highly detesta’ble
But please let us be recovera’ble
I can’t bear to be without you at all

SOLO

VERSE
Since I made the mistake just discussed
I’ve been trying very hard to adjust
At least you did not leave me in a cloud of dust
And, for that, I thank you very much

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
Learning how to talk is just part of the deal
And, yes, I know that can be a deal breaker

SOLO

Repeat CHORUS (2x)

TAG
Emphasis and syllable; okay, I’ve got it
