LYRICS:

I've a special secret children ought to know; It's about the little mistakes you make as you begin to grow. If you make a mistake, you shouldn't start to cry. Mistakes are not so bad, and here is why:

Oh everyone makes mistakes. Oh, yes they do Your sister and your brother and your dad and mother too; Big people, small people, matter of fact, all people! Everyone makes mistakes, so why can't you?

If you make a mistake while counting up to ten, Well don't get sad and don't be mad; Just start to count again. And if you should only get to eight or nine, I'm still your friend and I still like you fine,

'Cause everyone makes mistakes. Oh, yes they do Your sister and your brother and your dad and mother too; Big people, small people, matter of fact, all people! Everyone makes mistakes, so why can't you?

If you spill a glass of milk all over the floor, Well, your mom and dad'll like you just as much as they did before, 'Cause when Mother and Dad were just as small as you, I'll bet that they knocked their milk over too.

'Cause everyone makes mistakes. Oh, yes they do Your sister and your brother and your dad and mother too; Big people, small people, matter of fact, all people! Everyone makes mistakes, so why can't you?

If everyone in the whole wide world makes mistakes, Then why can't you?

    That's true. Just like that song Big Bird sang on Sesame Street, "Everyone Makes Mistakes".
