Pretty lady next to me, no more tears yeah no more crying
Not too late to start again, keep on moving, keep on trying
Too much pain for one life, too much pain for a loving wife
Starry eyes have turned to grey, make those clouds move away

I don’t wanna see no more hands falling on me, well
I just think it’s time to leave, well
And now you finally cry, years go by you finally cry, well
I just think it’s time to leave

Little man has come and gone, poor little boy can’t sing his song
Working down at the factory, how come things ain’t how they oughtta be?
Well here comes pop, he sure looks mad, much too mean to call my dad
Hey there mom, what did I do? Nothing sweetie, it ain’t you, well

And I don’t wanna hear my little girl shedding no tears, well
I just think it’s time to leave, well
I don’t wanna dry my little boy’s crying eyes, well
I just think it’s time to leave

I was twenty years old, what could I do
Twenty years old when we had you
And I don’t think you’re being fair
Still a little boy at heart
Running around in his backyard

Little girl is all grown up, she’s come to know a loving touch
Gotta find the same for mom, keep that heartbeat moving along
Hey there dad, what’re you gonna do, kick in the door and try to break through
To get to her you gotta get through me, I ain’t the little kid I used to be, well

I refuse to see any more hands falling on me well,
I just think it’s time to leave
And now you finally cry, without your love I’ll surely die, well
I just think it’s time to leave
