morning at five o'clock
As the day
Silently closing her bedroom door
the note that she would say more
She downstairs to the kitchen
her handkerchief
Quietly the back door key
Stepping she is free

She (we gave her most of our lives)
Is leaving ( most of our lives)
Home (we gave her money buy)
She's leaving home
After living alone
For so many years (bye bye)

Father as his wife gets into her dressing gown
the letter that's lying there
Standing alone at the top of the stairs
She and cries to her husband
Daddy our baby's
would she treat us so thoughtlessly
could she do this to me

She (We never thought of ourselves)
Is leaving (never a for ourselves)
Home (we hard all our lives to get by)
She's leaving home
After living alone
For so many years (bye bye)

morning at nine o'clock she is far away
Waiting the appointment she made
Meeting a man from the motor

She ( did we do that was wrong)
Is having (we didn't know it was )
Fun (fun is the thing that money can't buy)
inside
That was always
For so many years (bye bye)
She's leaving home (bye bye).
