SONS AND DAUGHTERS

Sons and daughters leaving
Going far away
See them sadly waving
Wishing they could stay
All they see about them
Darkness and decay
Sons and daughters leaving
Going far away

Job in South Australia
Out along a bay
House with half an acre
Mortgage they can pay
Sandy beach and blue sky
Safe for childrens play
Job in South Australia
Out along a bay

   Letting go the children
   Telling them goodbye
   See you in the summer,
   Yes, I know you'll try
   A better life for certain
   Break the bonds that tie
   Letting go the children
   Telling them goodbye

Should have gone in '80
Things were different then
Now you're so much older
Couldn't start again
Smile and say it's all right
That was way back when
Should have gone in '80
Things were different then

So you're on your own now
That's the way life goes
Home's too big and empty
Bid for bungalows
Learn to send an e mail
Leaving out life's woes
So you're on your own now
That's the way life goes

With sons and daughters leaving
Going far away
See them sadly waving
Wishing they could stay
All they see about them
Darkness and decay
Sons and daughters leaving
Going far away
Sons and daughters leaving
For a better day
