You're not the only person
To get it wrong
Its all right
You're not the only person
To get it wrong
Its all right

A million other drunken white folks
Ever ready with their banknotes
You must've never met my wife though

You're not the only person
To get it wrong
Its all right
You're not the only person
To get it wrong
Its all right

Oh you poor poor boys
You don't know what you've done
You poor poor boys
You know you've still got time to run

I know its gonna hurt your pride though
To have to put away your knife so
I'll come back here tomorrow night, alone

And you can take anything
You can take anything that you want

Ahhh...

You're not the only person
To get it wrong
Its all right
You're not the only person
To get it wrong
Its all right
Ohhhh
You're not the only person
To get it wrong
Its all right

    Song MeaningThis song is actually about a real life event that happened to one of the band members and his wife when walking home. They were faced with a few hooded guys and knives and asked to hand over their stuff but the band members wife started shouting and screaming lecturing the boys about their lives and they simply put away their knifes, apologised and left.
