The Lyrics

What can go wrong, will wrong.
You botched it, go figure, once more it just figures
You botched it, go figure, once more it just figures

Heard of Murphy's Law? It's a pain in the chee-eeks
You should know which cheeks I mea-ean
Wait, you don't know? Let's go, I think that it reads like so
Mmm-hmmm "Anything that just might go wro-ong
Will go wrong" And so you see-ee-ee, yeah
That's why when my plans go tits u-up
I blame it on Murphy-y's Law

It can kick in right when you sta-art or no-ot
Just when you think it's all thumbs-u-up

Saying that's wrong? Tha-at law's Finagl-l-le's?
Once again, popular culture's lied
Then what law is Murphy's? Tell me now, I'm intrigued
"Things that can be done right or wro-ong
Wrong way's a catastrophe-e-e, yeah
It's guaranteed to be done wro-ong
That's the proper Murphy-y's La-aw"

Wonder why it's always been quo-uoted wro-ong?
Ev'rybody screwed it right u-up

Hey, hey, he-e-e-ey
Say, could that be an example, du-ude?
Cause we all went the wrong wa-ay
Not quite disastrous, but I feel like such a right
Dork, dork, do-ork
I hope that I can use the terms ri-i-ight
Spread it to my friends onli-ine
But to be honest, don't think that it'll stick
More wrong la-aws
I guess that you could call it habi-it
To blame it all on Murphy-y-y, yeah
Whoever he was anywa-ay
Actually Finagl-le's Law

Thought I hate to be a peda-antic pra-at
Don't like being wrong, that's a fa-act
"Don't taunt Murphy" I lived by tha-at line, man
Now know it's Finagl-le's La-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-aw
All these years been using it wro-ong, so wro-ong
No-one told me that it was wro-ong
Now I feel like a total clo-od, a clo-od
Get left out of the loop a lo-ot, hmmm-mmm
Had this whole plan to sing 'bout flo-ops, huge flo-ops
That I would blame on Murphy's La-aw, hmmm-mmm-mmm
But that factoid through me right o-off, right o-off
All those plans gone right down the bo-og, ah-ah-ah
I'm not mad at you, no, I'm no-ot
I'm mad at this prat right he-e-ere
The one singing this derailed so-ong
Mistakes are one of my fea-ea-ears (dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb)
