We grow up
And move away.
Our parents bring us up
And send us away.

When we’re young
We couldn’t have a care.
But when we’re no longer young
Are we always fair?

We grow up

And move away.

Our parents bring us up

And send us away.

When we're young

We couldn't have a care.

But when we're no longer young

Are we always fair?

Growing up

We can be cruel and mean.

Even at all grown up

We can be heartless and mean.

What we're missing

As we grow up

Is the instructing

On how to love.

We grow up

And move away.

Our parents bring us up

And send us away.

If we fail to learn this

When we're young.

Then we may also fail to learn it

When we're not so young.

So that when we're sent out

Into the world

We'll end up having a bout

With the sword.

But hopefully we'll learn it

Before we're sent out.

Because it's the bit

That people often doubt.

We grow up

And move away.

Our parents bring us up

And send us away.
