I plopped down on the floor with one thing to do
I would sit right there until I tied that shoe
I grabbed those laces and I really tried
But it all went loopy, and it wouldn't stay tied
My mom leaned over me and said, "I'd say
That's a big improvement over yesterday.
I know to do it perfect is your heart's dear yearning,
But just be patient; you're still learning."
Anyone anywhere who's done anything
Had to learn how to do it from the beginning
And in everything you do, just as far as I can tell
You have to do it poorly before you do it well
So try to relax, and give yourself a break
And take as much time as you need to take
I broke Mom's necklace, and I didn't feel proud
But she got real angry and she yelled real loud
She sent me upstairs to await my doom
Later came a knock on the door of my room
Her eyes looked as if she were about to cry
She said, "You made a mistake, but so did I.
I'm very sorry; now the tables turn--
In case you're wondering, I'm still learning."
I'm still learning
I'm still learning
I'm still learning
We're all still learning
