"D.I.V.O.R.C.E" as written by Bobby Braddock and Curly Putman....
Our little boy is four years old and quite a little man
So we spell out the words we don't want him to understand
Like T-O-why or maybe S-you-are-P-are-I-S-E
But the words we're hiding from him now
Tear the heart right out of me

Our D-I-V-O-are-see-E becomes final today
Me and little J-O-E will be goin' away
I love you both and this will be pure H-E double L for me
Oh, I wish that we could stop this D-I-V-O-are-see-E

Watch him smile, he thinks it's Christmas
Or his 5th Birthday and he thinks see-you-S-T-O-D-why spells fun or play
I spell out all the hurtin' words and turn my head when I speak
'Cause I can't spell away this hurt that's drippin' down my cheek

Our D-I-V-O-are-see-E becomes final today
Me and little J-O-E will be goin' away
I love you both and this will be pure H-E double L for me
Oh, I wish that we could stop this D-I-V-O-are-see-E

    General CommentShe still loves the man, and their little boy is the only thing they share now.
    Her pain is so strong that she can't spell it out or brush it under the carpet, so to speak. "...I can't spell away this hurt that's dripping down my cheek." She can't hold back the tears, but she needs to be strong for her little boy.
