The Temperance Movement – Children lyrics
Children in a happy home
And love is all we have
And love is all we have
I've been disappearing
When love is not enough
When love is not enough

I never thought I'd be so dumb
Blaming everybody for the things I've done
I never thought I'd be so cruel
Breaking your heart for telling me the truth
Singing till my song went flat
No I don't ever want to sing a song like that
No I don't want to sing another song like that

Children lead me to my favoured one
Well she knows the name I call
When I cry and cry and cry
All this for the greater good in us
Baby stand me on my feet
Throw your fist across my cheek

I never thought I'd be so dumb
Blaming everybody for the things I've done
I never thought I'd be so cruel
Breaking your heart for telling me the truth
Singing till my song went flat
No I don't ever want to sing a song like that
No I don't want to sing another song like that

I want you to take me back to Bar Ten on Mitchell Lane
When I was nothing to you and you were nothing to me
See if I had known the future, all the pleasure and the pain
You know I would
Yes I'd do it over and over and over and over again
Over and over and over and over again

I never thought I'd be so dumb
Blaming everybody for the things I've done
I never thought I'd be so cruel
Breaking your heart for telling me the truth
Singing till my song went flat
No I don't ever want to sing a song like that
No I don't want to sing another song like that
