Ev’rybody Has The Right To Be Wrong

Writer(s): Sammy Cahn / Jimmy Van Heusen
(from the LP Album My Kind Of Broadway)

Everybody has the right to be wrong at least once
Everybody has the right to be dunce-like once.
Like not be too smart is no disgrace.
What sets you apart is smiling with egg on your face
Its naďve to make believe that you’re right, it’s not bright.
Only fools go walking on thin ice, twice.
You and life can skip the strife and you’ll both get along.
All it takes is simply saying you’re wrong when you’re wrong.
And everybody has the right to be wrong.
(musical interlude)
You and life can skip the strife and you’ll both get along.
All it takes is simply saying you’re wrong when you’re wrong.
And everybody has the right to be, it can be a real delight to be,
And I’d fight, fight for the right to be wrong, at least once.
