Canadian pop star Avril Lavigne has vowed to polish up on her lyrics before taking to the stage, after forgetting the words to her hit song COMPLICATED during a show.

The 19-year-old singer was left so embarrassed by the incident, she now doubts she'll ever have any trouble remembering the lyrics again.

She recalls, "During one of my recent shows, I totally forgot the second verse of Complicated. I looked at EVAN (my guitarist), and I said, right in the mic, 'I forgot the words.'

"Everyone started laughing. It was so weird."
