Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins.
She's silently closing her bedroom door.
Just leaving a note that she hoped would say more,
She goes downstairs to the kitchen,
Clutching her handkerchief.
Silently turning the backdoor key,
Stepping outside, she is free...
She- we gave her most of our lives.
Sacrificed most of our lives.
We gave her everything money could buy.
She's leaving home. After she lived here so long for so many years.

Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown.
Finding the note that is lying there,
Standing alone at the top of the stairs,
She breaks down and cries to her husband.
"Daddy, our baby, is gone!
"How could she treat us so thoughtlessly?
"How could she do this thing to me?"


She is leaving home... She's leaving home,
After she lived her so long for so many years.
Hea... (Adlib)


It's Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away.
Rushing to keep an appointment that she's made.
Meeting a man from the motor trade.
She- we gave her most of our lives.
Sacrificed most of our lives.
We gave her everything money could buy.
She's leaving home. After she lived here so long for so many years.
She's leaving home. Bye-bye, bye-bye.
