She wakes up in the morning with the new sunrise  Looks at her husband sleeping still  Inside she cries 

She makes the children breakfast
Gets them on their way
 Watching them through the window 
She prepares to face another day

Then her husband tells her
That he won't be home 'til late
There's so much work he'll have to stay behind 

But she knows it isn't work that's on his mind
But still he'll never leave her

'Cause what would the children think
 Where would the children go
What would the children do
If they knew the way it was
But they'll never learn because 
What would the children think
 Where would the children think

At the gate she kissed him
And watched him walk
 Hoping this small charade
Will stop the neighbors talk

She turns to hide a tear
 Inside her gilded cage
She cries for the love she could not hold
And lost to someone half her age

Then her pride and breakin' heart 
Tell her to run away
But she values what she's got a little more
Two kids, one 9 and nearly 4
And she would never leave them cause:

What would the children think
 Where would the children go
What would the children do
If they knew the way it was
But they'll never learn because 
What would the children think
 Where would the children think

What would the children think
 Where would the children go
What would the children do:.
