Mother you had me
But I never had you
I wanted you
But you didn't want me
So I got to tell you
Goodbye
Goodbye
Father you left me
But I never left you
I needed you
But you didn't need me
So I just got to tell you
Goodbye
Goodbye
Children don't do what I have done
I couldn't walk and I tried to run
So I got to tell you
Goodbye
Goodbye
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
