FADE ******************** As recorded by VIKKI CARR: With pen in hand you sign your name Today at five I'll be on that train And you'll be free and I will be alone So alone If you think we can't find the love we once knew If you think I can't make everything up to you Then I'll be gone and you'll be on your own You'll be on your own Can you take good care of Jennie Can you take her to school everyday Can you teach her how to play all the games That little girls play Here what I say Can you teach her how to roll up her hair Can you make sure each night that she says her prayers Well if you can do these things, then maybe she won't miss me Maybe she won't miss me And tonight as you lay in that big lonely bed And you look at that pillow where I laid my head With your heart on fire, will you have no desire To kiss me or to hold me And if you can forget the good times we had If you don't think the good times, they outweigh the bad Well, then go ahead, sign your name and I'll be on my way I'll be on my way La-da-da-la-da-la-da-da-da-da La-da-da-la-da-la-da ...... FADE ********************* As recorded by DOROTHY MOORE: SPOKEN: I just can't believe it, baby You know, I can't believe it would go this far I mean like last month when you said you didn't love me anymore I could've died I would've thought it was just talk Oh, I know about her and what she means to you But, but what about our dreams and plans I mean all the plans that we made together And what about our little Susie Have you stopped to think about her With pen in hand you sign your name Today at five I'll be on that plane And you'll be free and I will be alone So alone If you think we can't find all the love we once knew If you think I can't make everything up to you Then I'll be gone, oh, then you'll be on your own You'll be on your own Can you take good care of Susie Can you take her to school everyday And can you teach her how to play all the games That little girls play, hear what I say Can you teach her how to roll up her hair Can you make sure each and every night that she says her prayers If you can do these things, oh, then maybe she won't miss me Maybe she won't miss me And tonight as you lay in that big lonely bed And you look at that pillow where I laid my head And with your heart on fire, oh, will you have no desire To kiss me or to hold me Do you think of all the good times that we've had And if you think all those good times, they just don't outweigh the bad Then sign your name, oh, then I'll be on my way I'll be on my way SPOKEN: (Are you comin' with us?) No, I, I can't come with ya, baby But I'll be here on the weekend And we'll have a good time then, okay? (But Mama, I don't understand ya) Well, it's hard to explain and things are different now But, but I'll see you often (But I'm scared, Mama) Uh, don't worry, baby, everything will be alright So, you just go on with Daddy (Do you still love me, Mama?) Darlin', Mama will always love ya (Mama, don't leave) Well, I got to go (Please don't leave) Ah, baby (Please don't leave) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2017)
