What I Did Wrong (score and parts)

Music by Kamala Sankaram

Text by Marie Howe

    Slapped the man’s face, then slapped it again,

    broke the plate, broke the glass, pushed the cat

    from the couch with my feet. Let the baby

    cry too long, then shook him,

    let the man walk, let the girl down,

    wouldn’t talk, then talked too long,

    lied when there was no need

    and stole what others had, and never

    told the secret that kept me apart from them.

    Years holding on to a rope

    that wasn’t there, always sorry

    righteous and wrong. Who would

    follow that young woman down the narrow hallway?

    Who would call her name until she turns?
