The Lyrics

This is for anyone who has ever been late to class or has ever told the truth and it got you in a lot of trouble
Step one you sneak into class
Shes teachin about history
Be careful not to make a sound
How you get in is a mystery
She looks at you and you smile
Don’t give away anything
Between the lines of fear and blame
You begin to wonder why you came

Where did I go wrong I told the truth
I swear I didn’t mean to
Now she knows that I was late
And now I got a detention
If only I was on time
Had I known how to tell a lie

As she begins to raise her voice
You hide behind your desk
You will do one of two things
You will admit to everything
Or youll find someone else to blame
And begin to wonder why you came



Where did I go wrong I told the truth
I swear I didn’t mean to
Now she knows that I was late
And I got a detention
If only I was on time
Had I known how to tell a lie

Ohhh
Where did I go wrong I told the truth
I swear I didn’t mean to
Now she knows that I was late
And I got a detention
If only I was on time
Had I known how to tell a lie
How to tell a lie
