I pity the mother and the father when the children are gone
Their life work complete still they must carry on
So many families separated today
And I pity the mother and the father
When the kids move away

Chorus: 1

No welfare check - or government plan
Can ease the pain in the heart of a lonely man
Or a lonely woman who gave her all that you might live today
Yes I pity the mother and the father
When the kids move away
In the oiden days a family never strayed far from home
One or two might move away but the rest would carry on
But we're scattered to the winds in this old world today
And I pity the mother and the father
When the kids move away
They wanted so bad for you to have it good
Didn't give you everything - but they did the best they could
And they know that you must move away with a family of your own
Still I pity the mother and the father
When the children are gone
No miracle drug in a nursing home
Can say I love you mama and daddy
When you're all alone
To a man or woman who gave their all
That you' might live today
Yes I pity the mother and the father
When the kids move away
When the kids move away
