SHE'S LEAVING HOME (J. Lennon / P. McCartney) The Beatles Richie Havens Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins She's silently closing her bedroom door Just leaving a note that she hoped would say more She goes downstairs to the kitchen Clutching her handkerchief She's quietly turning the backdoor key She's stepping outside, and 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 For so many years Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown She picks up the note that is lying there She's standing alone at the top of the stairs She breaks down and cries to her husband "Daddy, daddy, our baby, she's gone! How could she treat me so thoughtlessly Tell me, why would she do this thing to me?" She - we never thought of ourselves Is leaving - never a thought for ourselves - home We struggled hard all of our lives to get by Oh, yes we did Struggled for so many years It's Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away She's got away She's waiting to keep an appointment that she's made She's meeting a man from the motor trade She - what did we do that was wrong Is leaving - we never knew that we did anything wrong - home Fun is the one thing that money cannot buy Something inside that was always denied for so many years Why should she treat us so thoughtlessly? Why should she do this to me? Our baby's leaving home I've been living alone for so many years Bye-bye, oh bye-bye, goodbye
