"She's Leaving Home" lyrics

She's Leaving Home

Wednesday morning at five o'clock
As the day begins
Silently closing her bedroom door
Leaving the note
That she hoped would say more
She goes downstairs to the kitchen
Clutching her handkerchief
Quietly turning the backdoor key
Stepping outside she is free

She
We gave her most of our lives
Is leaving
Sacrificed most of our lives
Home
We gave her everything
Money could buy
She's leaving home
After living alone
Bye bye
For so many years

Father snores as his wife gets into
Her dressing gown
Picks up the letter
That's lying there
Standing alone
At the top of the stairs
She breaks down
And cries to her husband
"Daddy our baby's gone
Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly?
How could she do this to me?"

She
We never thought of ourselves
Is leaving
Never a thought for ourselves
Home
We struggled hard
All our lives to get by
She's leaving home
After living alone
Bye bye
For so many years

Friday morning at nine o'clock
She is far away
Waiting to keep
The appointment she made
Meeting a man
From the motor trade

She
What did we do that was wrong
Is having
We didn't know it was wrong
Fun
Fun is the one thing
That money can't buy
Something inside
That was always denied
Bye bye
For so many years

She's leaving home
Bye bye
