Today, I sat alone at the window 
And I watched our little girl outside at play,
With the little boy next door like so many times before
But something didn't seem quite right today

I know it can't be fun
I've watched Mommy and Daddy 
And if that's the way it's done

It makes my Mommy cry
 Cause when she played house
My Daddy said "Goodbye"
