dead easy

just one joke
upset the office mob
one prank
that cost me my job
I didn't mean it

dead easy
to make a fool of yourself
dead easy
to get into a mess
dead easy
if you don't give it some thought
dead easy
if you don't give it your best

just one word -
threw us off the track
one straw
broke your camel's back
I didn't mean it

dead easy
to make a fool of yourself
dead easy
to get into a mess
dead easy
if you don't give it some thought
dead easy
if you don't give it your best

I admit I have a loose tongue
it is true, I cannot keep mum
why can't we just disagree
you don't have to turn against me

dead easy
to make a fool of yourself
dead easy
to get into a mess
dead easy
if you don't give it some thought
dead easy
if you don't give it your best

Notes:
it is VERSE - CHORUS - VERSE - CHORUS - BRIDGE - CHORUS

That is my 'standard structure' if I don't have music, except that I normally have two verses at the beginning. More modern songs would only have one verse at the beginning, just like in "dead easy", but add lifts before the choruses and possibly yet another chorus at the end:
VERSE - LIFT - CHORUS - VERSE - LIFT - CHORUS - BRIDGE - CHORUS [CHORUS]
