I Stand Corrected

Album: Vampire Weekend (2008)
  • You've been checking on my facts
    And I admit I have been lax
    In double-screening what I say
    It wasn't funny anyway

    I stand corrected
    I stand corrected

    No one cares when you are wrong
    But I've been at this far too long
    To act like that when we should be
    In perfect harmony

    I stand corrected
    I, oh, I stand corrected

    Lord knows I haven't tried, I'll take my stand
    One last time
    Forget the protocol, I'll take your hand
    Right in mine

    I stand corrected
    I, oh, I stand corrected Writer/s: Ezra Koenig, Rostam Batmanglij
