lyrics

Sons and daughters leaving
Going far away
See them sadly waving
Wishing they could stay
All they see about them
Darkness and decay
Sons and daughters leaving
Going far away

Job in South Australia
Out along a bay
House with half an acre
Mortgage they can pay
Sandy beach and blue sky
Safe for children’s play
Job in South Australia
Out along a bay

Letting go the children
Telling them goodbye
See you in the summer
Yes, I know you’ll try
A better life for certain
Break the bonds that tie
Letting go the children
Telling them goodbye

Should have gone in ‘80
Things were different then
Now you’re so much older
Couldn’t start again
Smile and say it’s all right
That was way back when
Should have gone in ‘80
Things were different then

So you’re on your own now
That’s the way life goes
Home’s too big and empty
Bid for bungalows
Learn to send an email
Leaving out life’s woes
So you’re on your own now
That’s the way life goes

With sons and daughters leaving
Going far away
See them sadly waving
Wishing they could stay
All they see about them
Darkness and decay
Sons and daughters leaving
Going far away
Sons and daughters leaving
For a better day
