I'm saying goodbye like I have to do
I never thought I would say this to you
But there's just one thing I'd like you to do
Speak well of me to the kids won't you
Don't say it's your fault but please don't say it's mine
Say something happened and they'll understand in time
That's not too much to ask I'd do it for you
Speak well of me to the kids won't you

When they start asking and they will before long
Wondering what happened and why I left home
Please tell 'em I love 'em let 'em know I do
Speak well of me to the kids won't you
Don't say it's your fault...
