Mother told me, yeah, she told me
I’d meet girls like you
But she never told me that you’d leave or what to do about it
Now you’ve gone and disappeared before I got a chance to promise that I’ll run away with you
I’ll run away with you

Put up your quitting fists
‘cause I won’t leave without a kiss
From the one who’s been winning since I went and lost my mind
And I gave in to the given but now I give up.

You can tell me it’s all over
And I’ll say that’s all right
But what I mean is I ain’t goin’ down without a fight
But I guess if mommy’s all right
And daddy’s all right
It all seems a little weird
I won’t surrender
Surrender
Or give myself away

Put up your quitting fists ‘cause I’m the one you’re gonna miss
And you know I’m not perfect
I don’t even know your name
But I’ve got a heart and a problem
Just the same

(Oooo-ooh)
[It has been brought to mind that one of our children has left the loving fold. This does not come as a surprise to me, brothers and sisters. No, no. I have always known the desire, the need to see the world. I am not troubled, but I am prepared to battle for the lost soul and I ask you, brothers and sisters, to raise your fists for the wayward one, for it is their choice, their freedom to leave us, but it is another decision entirely for us to leave them, brothers and sisters. One we will not, we MUST not abandon.]

Put up your quitting fists ‘cause
I’m not leavin’ without a kiss
Blur the lines of beginning and another bitter end
Of all the wonderful trouble
That I give
