lt just happened a few minutes ago. I laughed when we were recording the song for my music classes due to the funny lyrics. Because of my laughter, we had to record the song again. That was so bad for us because we didn't have that much time to finish my work. I apologized to my partners. My mistake really messed up the rhythm.
