She's Leaving Home

The Beatles

1. 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 hand kerchief
   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
2. 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
3. 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
   She's leaving home, bye bye!
