SORRY Sorry for my careless pranks Sorry for not saying thanks Sorry for showing my fangs Sorry for taking you for grants Sorry for this rift Sorry for being thrift Sorry for setting myself adrift Sorry for everything my gift My apology is unqualified For the truth I lied For the case I am tried I deserve this, for my pride I am sorry I am very sorry For this I will worry Forgive me to God's glory
