You'd better sit down kids I'm telling you why
You might not understand kids but give it a try
Now how should I put this I've got something to say
I will be staying but daddy's going away
No we're not mad kids and it's hard to say why
Your daddy and I kids don't see eye to eye
Say your prayers before you go to bed help me get you off to school on time
I know you'll do the things I'll ask of you
I'm gonna need you more to stay in line
Keep in mind I'm gonna need your help a whole lot more than I ever did before
No more fightin' no more little things cause he won't be there to stop them anymore

I know you don't want this neither do we
But sometimes things happen that we can't forsee
Now try to become kids and don't look so sad
Just cause he is leaving he'll still be your dad
Just remember we love you and though he's not here
Just call if you'll need him he'll always be near
Say your prayers...
Well your dad has to go now so kiss him goodbye
Our eyes are just red kids we're too big to cry
You'd better sit down kids I'm telling you why
You might not understand kids but give it a try
