Married/
You'd Better Sit Down, Kids

(Kander-Ebb/Bono)


How the world can change
It can change like that
To the one little word:
Married
See a palace rise
From a two room flat
To the one little word:
Married

And the old despair
That was often there
Suddenly ceases to be
For you wake one day
Look around and say
Somebody wonderful married me

You better sit down, kids
And I'll tell you why, kids
You might not understand, kids
But give it a try, kids

Now how should I put this?
I've got something to say
Your daddy is stayin'
But I'm going away

Oh no, we're not angry
It's hard to say why
Your father and I, kids
We just don't see eye to eye

I know you don't want this
Well, neither do we
But sometimes, things happen
That we can't foresee

Now don't look so sad, kids
And try to be calm
Just because I am leavin'
I will still be your mom

Just remember I love you
And though I'm not here
You just call when you need me
And I'll always be near

Say your prayers before you go to bed
Make sure you get yourself to school on time
I know you'll do the things your father asks
He's gonna need you more, so stay in line
Keep in mind your daddy's gonna need your help a lot more than he did before
No more fights over little things cos I won't be there to stop you anymo--
Anymore...

Well, I have to go now
So come on and kiss me goodbye
My eyes are just red kids
You know I'm too big to cry

Just remember I love you
And though I'm not here
You just call if you need me
And I will always be near
Just remember I love you
Just remember I love you
Just remember I love you
