To err is human I heard you say Forgiveness is divine But all the sweet things that you may say Can’t mend this heart of mine Never thought that anyone in their right mind Could ever treat another human so unkind Didn’t you sneak away and leave a note behind Was that the human thing to do? I always thought that yours was such a heart of gold But after I was sold on all the tales you told Didn’t you let your kisses turn from hot to cold? Was that the human thing to do? Now I’m not trying to patch things up ‘Cos what’s been done must be Lord, I wouldn’t even treat a pup The way you treated me How could anybody be so darned unfair? You let me hang around until I learned to care Didn’t you even laugh and leave me cryin’ there Was that the human thing to do? (Musical Break) Now I just want to be understood I’m no false alarm If I couldn’t do a human good I wouldn’t do ‘em harm How you let me fall and how you let me be And when I begged you for a little sympathy Didn’t you even try to hi-di-hi-di me? Was that the human thing to do? (Contributed by Bill Huntley - March 2007)
