Wednesday morning at five o'clock
As the day begins    
Silently closing her bedroom door
Leaving the note that she
Hoped would say more
She goes downstairs to the kitchen
Clutching her handkerchief    
Quietly turning the backdoor key
Stepping outside she is free.

She (We gave her most of our lives)
Is leaving (Sacrificed most of our lives)
Home (We gave her everything money could buy)
She's leaving home after living alone
For so many years     

Father snores as his wife gets
Into her dressing gown    
Picks up the letter that's lying there
Standing alone at the top of the stairs
She breaks down and cries to her husband
Daddy our baby's gone     
Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly
How could she do this to me.

She (We never thought of ourselves)
Is leaving (Never a thought for ourselves)
home (We struggled hard all our lives to get by) 
She's leaving home after living alone
For so many years   

Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away    
Waiting to keep the appointment she made
Meeting a man from the motor trade
Bridge:
x4

She (What did we do that was wrong)
Is having (We didn't know it was wrong)
Fun (Fun is the one thing that money can't buy)
Something inside that was always denied
For so many years    
She's leaving home    bye, bye
