Bash script from makefile - it is called each time i call make

I've created a tag in the makefile:
Code:
mytag: $(shell ${PWD}/script.sh)

When i do: make clean - the script is executed

When i perform make or make mytag the script is again executed with the output:
Code:
make: Nothing to be done for mytag

What i want ?
I want script.sh to be executed only when i perform make mytag

Thanks

default tag was missing from my Makefile, and i've put
Code:
mytag: 
	$(shell ${PWD}/script.sh)[/FONT][/COLOR]
