    She was married and then divorced

Dmaj7                G/D         Gm7
    Things seemed to happen that way

        F#m(add7)
    The children were confused, sometimes they'd fight

    B7(sus4)         B7       Em9      Am7
    Sitting in their toys and games

Dmaj7             G/D        A/D        G/D
    To them she's mother and I am their friend

        Dmaj7          G/D    Gm7
    Who sits with them on his lap

        F#m7                    Bm7
    And sleeps on the sofa on alternate weekends

       Em7                  A7(sus4)
    No substitute for their dad

            Dmaj7
    She's a very good mum

           C#7
    As she tries to explain

         Em9
    Everything that she can

          Bm7
    But a child's mind is sharp

          Gmaj7
    They imagine the worst

              Em9
    Sometimes can't understand

                 F#m
    That there's so much to learn

             F#            G/D
    When you open a can of worms





So to the park to play on the swings
To give their mother a break
When I saw their father walking down the path
Heading down towards the gate
I froze on the spot, heart in my throat
I hoped he'd not see us there
He soon disappeared and the kids on the slide
Were happy and unaware

I read the papers and made scrambled eggs
The kids got ready to leave
Their father was taking them for the weekend
With pocket money and sweets
They were excited as they waved goodbye
And I went straight back to bed
Their mother stood and watched as they drove away
Standing on the front door step
