"Sons And Daughters" as written by and Ian Hunter....
There`s a place in the city they call the Archway
Where we rented three rooms for a dollar a day
and I worked semi-skilled at the capstans for years
And my wife was a good woman but the love disappeared

Sons and Daughters, Daughters and Sons
When a marriage goes down they`re the loneliest ones
Sons and Daughters, Daughters and Sons
How I hope they can cope with the damage I`ve done

I found me a band, I went out on tour
So the kids wouldn`t know I was with them no more
When they said, "Where`s me dad?" She`d say, "He`s a star!"
Oh if only stars knew what fools they all are.

Sons and Daughters, Daughters and Sons
When a marriage goes down they`re the loneliest ones
Sons and Daughters, Daughters and Sons
How I hope they can cope with the damage I`ve done

I got a new contract, I got a new life
No more capstans for me and I`ve got a new wife
Sometimes she gets angry, says she wants a family
Then that nightmare returns like a ghost haunting me

Sons and Daughters, Daughters and Sons
When a marriage breaks up you`re the loneliest ones
Sons and Daughters, Daughters and Sons
How I hope you all cope with the damage we done
