To live and breathe is to make mistakes
Don’t aim to blame them’s just the breaks
Lookin’ back probably mostly unaware
I know I made my share

Some I wish I could undo
Others helped me see the truth
How many I’d be guessing my hands don’t count that high
These are my top five

Last place easy gettin’ stoned and sellin’ all my records
Second last is skippin’ court to drive out to the desert
Bronze that’s all the things I either have or haven’t written
Silver clearly chasin’ you like barley chases liquor
And gold I dunno’ maybe running with scissors

Where is the line that separates
The bad to worse the good to great
Some folks say what’s done is done
But I like to count ‘em down to one

Number five was gettin’ high and sellin’ all my records
Number four must be skippin’ court to drive out to the desert
Number three it’s a tie between what I have and haven’t written
Number two that’s chasin’ you like barley chases liquor
Number one my index and my thumb running with scissors

Number one well it just seemed like fun running with scissors
Number one oh what have I become still running with scissors
Number one could be anything under the sun let’s say running with scissors
