"You'll Be Taken Care Of" as written by and David Byrne....
Precious little children, what can I do?
Someday they'll remember what I told you
Did it together, just you and me
Without a man in this family

I didn't raise them; it's you they love
They will remember the things you've done
Sometimes I felt that I've lost my mind
Things didn't work out the way we planned
And when they grow up and they make good
They will repay what I owe too

You'll be taken care of
And they'll remember you
Precious little children
On that you can be sure
You will never want for more

When they grow up, they'll be kind and smart
And you will see that they'll all go far
I haven't long, but I know it's true
These little ones owe a lot too

You'll be taken care of
And they'll remember you
Precious little children
On that you can be sure
You will never want for more

You'll be taken care of; they'll remember you
Someday they will give you things I never could
You'll be taken care of; on that you can be sure
If there's any justice in this world, you'll never want for more

Someday I promise you
Remember what I say is true
Someday I promise you
Remember what I say is true
