Proclaimers – It Broke My Heart lyrics

Saw a man who was fifty-one
He bad married daughters and a single son
And he's lost his job as this years begun
And it broke my heart
Saw his wife who was fifty-two
She said she was sure they could make it through
That her single wage would just have to do
And it broke my heart
Talked about it with the family now
What began in sadness ended up a row
All the guys with the clever mouths
They were saying we should move south
Saw the son who's been gone two weeks
And he's down already with a job to seek
And he's in Kings Cross and there's no-one speaking
And it broke my heart.
