Subject: Lyr Add: LEAVING HOME

1) Now you're all past twenty-one
We think it's time that you were gone
Time you started on your own
If you were birds you would have flown
We've had a talk your mom and me
We're sorry if you don't agree
You can shout and you can moan
But mom and me we're leaving home

2) You've had the best days of our lives
So never doubt our love survives
But when we think of all we've spent
We think we should have charged you rent
We've pushed the trolleys then we've queued
To fill the fridge and buy the food
The fridge was empty the next day
So fridge and us we're on our way

'Cause there's so much we've never seen
So many places we've not been
So many dreams we'd like to dream
We'll trade conformity for cream
And if you think we won't get far
Well, sorry kids, we'll take the car
You've got ten days, no time to grouse
You see we've gone and sold the house.

3) You've taken all that we could bring
You've never wanted for a thing
In fact you've had it so damn good
You wouldn't leave it when you could
That's why we're taking all TVís
To share our leisured life of ease
And in a month, well, more or less
You'll get our P.O. Box address
'Cause we're leaving home!
