Lesson Number One lyrics

(m. crenshaw)

Its been no fun learning lesson number one
Nobody can share my troubles, this I know
And let me tell you I learned a lesson, here I go
Dont you know (oh no) its just as sure as the rising sun
Dont you know (oh no) to tell the truth is lesson number one
I look around the room and know the hotel in one glance
And it seems that Ive arrived at a battleground just by chance
Clothes thrown everywhere mirrors broken and damage done
And Im all alone thinkin back on lesson number one
I remember being told to be careful
That telling even one lie
Would surely lead to more problems
Of alarming dimensions
I wish I had paid attention
Clothes thrown everywhere mirrors broken and damage done
And Im all alone thinkin back on lesson number one
To lie to your lover is a sorry losing game
To lie is a violation and a shame
Dont you know (oh no) its just as sure as the rising sun
Dont you know (oh no) to tell the truth is lesson number one
Dont you know (oh no) its just as sure as the rising sun
Dont you know (oh no) to tell the truth thats lesson number one
Dont you know (oh no) its just as sure as the rising sun
Dont you know (oh no) to tell the truth is lesson number one
Robert crenshaw: drums
Tony garnier: stand-up bass
