"Your Mother And I" lyrics - LOUDON WAINWRIGHT III

"Your Mother And I"

Your mother and I are living apart
I know that seems stupid, but we weren't very smart
You'll stay with her, I'll visit you
At Christmas, on weekends, in the summertime too

Your mother and I are not getting along
Somehow somewhere something went wrong
Everything changes, time takes it's toll
Your folks fell in love, love's a very deep hole

Your mother and I will do all we can do
To work this thing out and to take care of you
Families get broken, I know it's a shame
It's nobody's fault, and you're not to blame

Your mother and I are both feeling bad
But things will get better, It won't stay this sad
And I hope when you grow up, one day you'll see
Your parents are people and that's all we can be

Your mother and I
