"You Better Sit Down Kids" lyrics - SONNY AND CHER

"You Better Sit Down Kids"

Better sit down kids I'll tell you why, kids
You might not understand, kids
But give it a try, kids
Now how should I put this I've got something to say
Your mother is staying but I'm going away
No, we're not mad, kids it's hard to say why
Your mother and I don't see eye to eye

Say your prayers before you go to bed
Make sure you get yourself to school on time
I know you'll do the things your mother asks
She's gonna need you most to stay in line
Keep in mind your mother's gonna need your help
A whole lot more than she ever did before
No more fights over little things
Because I won't be here to stop them anymore

I know you don't want this, neither do we
But sometimes things happen that we can't foresee
Now try to be calm kids, and don't look so sad
Just cause I am leaving, I'll still be your dad
Just remember I love you though I'm not here
Just call if you need me and I'll always be near


Well I have to go now so kiss me goodbye
My eyes are just red kids, I'm too big to cry
