Kids say the darndest things,
Have you ever listened close to the games they play,
Or the little songs they sing?

Last night dressed up in high heeled shoes,
And wearing my old hat,
My four year old said: "I want to divorce."
Now where did she hear that?

Kids say the darndest things,
Have you ever listened close to the games they play,
Or the little songs they sing?

Last night as I watched TV,
Our one rushed through the door.
"Mommy, Daddy's telling someone on the phone,
"Don't you call me here no more."

Kids say the darndest things,
Have you ever listened close to the games they play,
Or the little songs they sing?

"I bet my Daddy can whip your Daddy,
But Daddy's never home."
"And I think Mommy's worried 'bout him,
'Cause she cried all night long."

Kids say the darndest things,
Have you ever listened close to the games they play,
Or the little songs they sing?

You never know what they learn at school,
Or what they're thinking of.
My first grader just said a four letter word,
And it sure wasn't love.

Kids say the darndest things,
Have you ever listened close to the games they play,
Or the little songs they sing?

Kids say the darndest things,
Have you ever listened close to the games they play,
Or the little songs they sing?
