Wwith Pen in Hand
With pen in hand you sign your name
Today at five I'll be on that train
Soon you'll be free and I'll be alone
Do you think we can't find the love we once knew
Do you think I can't make everything up to you
Then go ahead sign your name and I'll be on my way
Can you take good care of Johnny?
Can you take him to school every day?
Can you teach him how to catch a fish And keep all the bullies away?
Can you teach him how to whistle a tune?
Can you tell him about the man in the moon?
If you can do these things then maybe he won't miss me.
And at night when you lay in that big empty bed
And you look at the pillow where I laid my head
With you heart on fire will you have no desire to kiss me, or to hold me
And if you can forget all the good times we had
If you don't think the good times outweigh the bad
Then go ahead sign you name and I'll be on my way, I'll be on my way
