Tell me now, tell me true
Of all the things I did to you
Was this the one that made you break
Did I make my last mistake

Only you can play the game
Rope-a-dope and lay the blame
Can't you see my body shake
Cause I made my last mistake

I was out of line before,
But this is so much more I know
I know

I don't wanna be the king
Of every single living thing, just you
And you can be my queen, mama

Separate towns, separate hearts
Distant love from distant parts
Every man plays the same
Bout to make his last mistake

Oh yeah, my, my, my, my, my

My last mistake
Last mistake
Oh, my last mistake
My last mistake

    General CommentThis song is so far one of my favorites on his solo albums. It has such a great beat to it and it is unlike any other song that he has done before. :) I love it!

    Bound to make his last mistake"
