It's Not Heaven Lyrics

(Olivia Newton-John/Randy Goodrum)

Here's your lunch money
You better hurry for the old school bus
Did you clean your teeth this morning
I know you hate it when I start to fuss
Here's the letter for your teacher
Your dinner's in the freezer
Five minutes in the microwave
Don't wait for me this evening
I'm probably working late

Your dad is coming over
With his new lover
And I don't wanna be around
So I'm gonna do some shopping
I'll buy you those stockings
I'll be back in half an hour
Oh it's my anticipation
There'd be a confrontation
I know how much it breaks your heart
Let's be pleased for him--he's trying
To make a brand new start

It's not Heaven but it's all we've got
You have to understand it
I wanted Ozzie and Harriet
With a picket fence around it
But that was all an illusion
Now we're living in reality
But we're gonna have a happy ending--you and me

We'll spend the weekend playing
I hope it won't be raining
When we go to the game with Dan
I know you think he's boring
But this time don't ignore him
Won't you give him half a chance
No he's not as fun as dad
But there's good as well as bad
In hanging on to yesterday
I'm not trying to replace him
Guess I'm really trying to say

It's not Heaven but it's all we've got
You have to understand it
I wanted Ozzie and Harriet
With a picket fence around it
But that was all an illusion
Now we're living in reality
But we're gonna have a happy ending--you and me

Together I know we'll survive
Rebuild our lives together
One day at a time

It's not Heaven but it's all we've got
You have to understand it
I wanted Ozzie and Harriet
With a picket fence around it
But that was all an illusion
Now we're living in reality
But there's gonna be a happy ending
Wait and see
Yes there's gonna be a happy ending
For you and me
You better hurry for the old school bus
