Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins 
Silently closing her bedroom door 
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more 
She goes downstairs to the kitchen clutching her handkerchief 
Quietly turning the backdoor key 
Stepping outside 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) 
She's leaving home after living alone 
For so many years. Bye, bye 
Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown 
Picks up the letter that's lying there 
Standing alone at the top of the stairs 
She breaks down and cries to her husband Daddy our baby's gone 
Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly 
How could she do this to me. 
She (We never thought of ourselves) 
is leaving (Never a thought for ourselves) 
home (We struggled hard all our lives to get by) 
She's leaving home after living alone 
For so many years. Bye, bye 
Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away 
Waiting to keep the appointment she made 
Meeting a man from the motor trade. 
She (What did we do that was wrong) 
is having (We didn't know it was wrong) 
fun (Fun is the one thing that money can't buy) 
Something inside that was always denied 
For so many years. Bye, bye 
She's leaving home. Bye, bye
