Music by Patterico, With a Little Help from Jay Semko of The Northern Pikes: Part 3: The Same Mistake
Tonight I am sharing the last of three songs that I wrote in the 1990s, and that Northern Pikes front man Jay Semko recorded for me this year. I posted the first one a while back (song; lyrics; original version). I posted the second one a couple of weeks ago (song; lyrics; original version).
Here is the last one, a little ditty called “The Same Mistake.”
It’s a joyous little breakup tune, where the boy wishes he could have the girl back . . . to give her the treatment she truly deserved, but which he never gave her when they were together.
