Cher – You Better Sit Down Kids lyrics

Better sit down kids
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
You mother is staying
But I'm going away
No, we're not mad, kids
It's hard to say why
Your mother and I
Don't see eye to eye

Say your prayers before you go to bed
Make sure you get yourself to school on
I know you'll do the things your mother
She's gonna need you most to stay in
Keep in mind your mother's gonna need
Your help a whole lot more than she
Ever did before
No more fights over little things
I won't be here to stop them anymore

I know you don't want this, neither do
But sometimes things happen
That we can't foresee
Now try to be calm, kids
And don't look so sad
Just cause I am leaving
I'll still be your dad
Just remember I love you
And though I'm not here
Just call if you need me
And I'll always be near
(Repeat Chorus)

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