Lyrics,

To err is human,
I heard you say
"Forgiveness is divine."

But all the sweet things
That you may say
Can't mend this heart of mine

Never thought that anyone
In their right mind
Could ever treat
Another human so unkind
Didn't you sneak away
And leave a note behind
Was that the human thing to do

Always thought that yours was such
A heart of gold
But after I was sold
On all the tales you told
Didn't you let your kisses turn
From hot to cold
Was that the human thing to do

I'm not tryin to patch things up
What's been done must be
Lord, I wouldn't even
Treat a ????
The way you treated me

How could anybody be so darn unfair
You let me hang around
Until I learned to care
Didn't you even laugh
And leave me cryin' there
Was that the human thing to do

Never thought that anyone
In their right mind
Could ever treat
Another human so unkind
Didn't you sneak away
And leave a note behind
Was that the human thing to do

Always thought that yours was
Such a heart of gold
But after I was sold
On all the tales that you told
Didn't you let your kisses turn
From hot to cold
Was that the human thing to do

Now I just wanna be understood

Won't you tell me
How could anybody
Be so darn unfair
You tell me hang around
Till I learned to care
Didn't you even laugh
And leave me cryin' there

Was that the human thing to do
Was that the human thing to do
